I don't have many true friends in the real sense of the word 'friend'. Actually, I am not a very jovial person. I share my feelings and thoughts only with my beloved ones. Can you completely share all your thoughts and feelings with your friends?

I did share all my thoughts and feelings to friends once when I was still without my own family. Now that I have a child I hardly see them and most of them I have lost contact with because they moved out of the city/country.

Good to hear that you all have some true friends.

I think that the majority of people overestimate the number of friends that they have. We might think that we are friends with a lot of people, but at the end of the day I would class a friend as somebody who is there for you whenever you need help, and somebody who you would be willing to help as well. I think that most people only have two or three true friends, and I know that this is certainly the case for me. My friends are ones who I went to college with, and I have never made any better friends even though I do like a lot of other people.

I think it depends on how close you are with a friend, how long you have known them, and how much you trust them. I think you can share your thoughts and feelings with a friend if you know them well enough and they are also able to share their thoughts and feelings with you. It is a two-way street and sometimes it takes quite a bit of time to build up the trust and empathy you need to share everything with them. Some friends that are just casual friends I would not share my deepest thoughts and feelings with. I have a few very close friends that I can tell anything to because they do not judge me. They accept me for who I am. Those are the kind of friends that you never want to lose.

Yes I can completely share my thoughts and feelings to my closest friend. I have several close friends but only a few are the closest. I seldom have fund with my friends and I enjoyed it.

Hello! It is written, "That there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother." It is really considered a wealth if you find a true friend. As for me, I have about two to three friends I consider "true" friends. I share them my feelings and thoughts at times but not all. Of course, there is a limitation. However, what is important is when I need them, they are present and ready to listen and help me with my problems. In my experience, true friends encourage and inspire. They also frank in correcting me. However, not in a serious way. Its really like a brother or sister relationship. It is good and it is a wealth. :-)
