My Only Friend

The only person I never had to worry about was my brother. He's the only one that I've always considered my friend. I never had to worry whether he was going to just decide that I was no longer worth his time or whatever everyone's reasons are for abandoning friends. It's not just because he's my brother, it's because we've always been close. A lot of people have troubles with their families. Anyway, point is, I never had to worry about my brother abandoning me. Is there anyone you have been friends with for a very long time and you're never afraid of them leaving?

My grandpa once said that you're luckier if you have even one true friend as compared to someone surrounded by a lot of phony ones. I'm afraid I can't really tell if I have a friend like that, who would stick up with me no matter what. But I know that my family will, and still love me despite it all.

This may sound cheesy but I consider my mum as my best friend, we have a wonderful inseparable bond between us, she is always there for me, even as a 40+ adult, to give me unconditional support, love and warmth, I know I can rely on my mum. It's wonderful you have such a strong bond with your brother, sometimes I look back and wonder how life would have been different for me if I had a brother or sister, being an only child certainly wasn't easy, but I always had my mum supporting me.

I have friends I've know since I was in 3rd Grade. And even 25 years after High School Graduation, we have remained real good friends. I know that although we could not be always be physically together, but our love for one another is true. We get the chance to chat at least once a week now, unlike before when there was no Facebook yet, we would be just sending email which takes quite sometime before a response would be received. Thank God for technology, indeed!

No there is nobody I will know for sure they will never leave me or abandon me. I think except for myself I do not count on anyone. Even not my children I am very close with. I found out too frequently that there will always be a time people will go their own way. I think it's good the way it is. We all need to lead our own life, we all need to make new friends, we never know what can make a person turn against us, no matter how close we (once) were. I hope you and your brother will stay close. I also hope my children will since they are also the only family they have.

Yes, I do have such a friend like that. It's a very good feeling to have knowing they will be there when you need their support. The world can be a very cruel place and we face struggles on a daily basis. It's during those times we need someone to talk to.

My only friend is God, then my family. I never had true friends. Some of them are just plainly casual friends.

The saying goes: "Like all, trust few." It is applicable in your topic. As a person I have few but real friends I don't go friends with everybody when I don't really trust them or know plenty of things about them I don't really consider staying with them for long as some may be plastic to me or something. But sad to say I am afraid to lose them though I know that when a friend goes I'm sure there's someone to replace that spot or something so that's part of our lives as humans. Goodluck with you my friend and I hope you're relationship with your brother will get even better!

I know how you feel, I am close to my brother too. I do not have first call because he is married with children and grandchildren now, but I know he would help me if I needed him. When my marriage broke up he was the only person who asked me if I needed any money! I will never forget that, as his family was young at the time and I doubt that he had much money to spare. We are twins and I cannot remember a birthday or Christmas or holiday without him being there too. If I lost him it would leave a big hole in my life, as well as my heart.

True friends will never leave us literally. A real friend will stay no matter what the cause, because that is real friendship. I have friends whom I trust and I believed (proven in time) they won't leave me. We have shared laughter and tears, sickness and in health- in so many other things. They are my friends who made me whole for once in my life I was broken into pieces.

I'm glad to hear that you and your brothers are close. That is a very good thing. A friendship that you can be proud and happy about. Glad to hear that he has always been there for you. I hope that you will continue to show the same loyalty to him as well. Yeah I do have friends that I can count on who will always be there for me if I need them.

It is really wonderful and nice to know that your friend is your brother. That is unusual to some families. It is really hard to find true friends nowadays. Some will stab you at the back or will forget you if you are in trouble. We really have to cherish some true friends. They are considered wealth too.
