Need of friend in life

November 25, 2012 11:36am CST
Friends play major roll in our life . Friends are of two types - 1) some friends are emotionally attached to us. 2) some persons only show that they are your friends . They just want help from us and nothing more . Emotionally attached friends never break friendship with us. They are our lifetime friends . In every happy moment , they are with us and also in sad moments , they are with us . What do you think , ' friends ' ?

I think that even friends that are emotionally attached to us don't last forever. I think that there are seasonal friends and very few lifelong friends. The seasonal friends are important too. Since many of us move a lot and change over the years, we rely on these seasonal friends to help us through tough times. We can open up to them emotionally and remember fond memories of our time with them. I find it difficult to have "lifelong" friends because it puts too much pressure on the relationship.

I think there are all kind of friends. No relationship is the same. If you have 3 true friends you still will have a different relationship with each of them. Some friends are just there to help you out in a time of need, for a certain period in your life, for some months or some years. Others will be there for many years or forever. But that doesn't mean that they are just there to have some benefit from you or they are all emotionally attached to you. People change through the years, because of life experiences, they get different needs, they develop themselves. This is how it should be since you (should) do the same. What I think? That you have to learn a lot more if it comes to friends but also that you should not divide/label them in just 2 groups.

It depends on how close and how far we know our friends. I have friends whom I met earlier in my life but the attachment we had for each other is deeper than any of my long friends in my childhood days. My friends (new friends, going on 6 years now) showed me they care and loved me unconditionally.

Hi, you are right. There are two types of friends in our life. For emotionally attached friend, they are true friends that will be with us regardless of what we go through. These are friends that we need to treasure. As for the other type, I wouldn't even consider them as my friend. Rather, they are just some people whom we need to have some relationship with, but after that period is over, so are these type of friendship. Our of my lecturer said before. When we can count our friends with one hand, we die a happy man :)

No matter how a certain person looks at me. As long as I consider her or him a friend, then he or she would always be one no matter how long have we not been together.

good day to you, indeed you are right. friends really play a major role in ones life. and in our life, they might make or break us. hence, they might be a help for us, needing our help or only there since nobody is there for them.

I am that two kinds. LOL. i can be the dependent one and the one who can be there for lifetime. Depends of the person I could say and the friendship I have invested already. I want to seek help from friends and if this friend turns me down it means to say that this friend can not be relied on in the future. those who were tested and passed means I will be their friends forever.

as for me, i cannot live without friend. friend can give me courage when i feel lost or disappointed. sometimes, i even feel friends are someone that can give something special for you that your boyfriend can not give. but it is the soul friend , i mean, not general friend

Absolutely! People need friends in one's life. They are those around you not only on good times but of bad times as well. Good friends are to be treasured. having a few in your life is great compared to many that are just passers in every chapter of your life. Good friends are God's gift.

yes, friends will plays major roll in our life .but actually who are the real friends. in danger situation also who will give the help if person is unknown that person also friend but in that situation who will give the hand is the cheater. friend will be our clasmates or relations or etc. only our blood friend consider as the emotional friends not all others .

I think friends that are emotionally attached to us don't last forever. As we grow older things change and our friends might not share the same traits and interests anymore. In the end, I'm my own best friend, Love yourself and appreciate what we already have! ^ ^

friends are really important in our lives.. aside from our family we can always lean on them in times of troubles or even in happiness but there are also friend that will lead us in bad influence so let`s be careful in making friends.. choose a friend that will make us better than will make us a bad person..

Friends come and go, these people I call acquaintances. The people you meet, and you form a bond with and they stick by your side no matter what, those are friends. Yes, I agree, those that are capable of forming an emotional attachment will stay friends with you longer. I have met friends, and they've been in my life for over twenty years, but separated by miles and lack of communication...these friendships just often fade away.
