are your friends for real?

03/28 1905H What is the real meaning of True Friendship? Is friendship only about having fun, laughter and memorable good times? What about during the low times? Do we have friends who really take time even to just listen to us on our lowest moments? And what about when we make a mistake in life? Are they still the same friends we call "friends"? There are so-called friends who, yes, during the good times are always there with you. But the minute you commit a mistake, the kind of mistake where people all around talk about you, there goes your friendship. The worse that could happen is when the same people you called "friends" would even be the one talking behind your back and putting you down, instead of advising you the right thing to do. Is that what friendship is all about?

I believe a friend is all those things you described except a friend is defintely not one who talks about you behind your back or puts you down. I used to think I had alot of friends when I was younger but now that I have moved away from my home town and now live in a totally different state. I moved from wapato, washington to dallas, tx. Only a couple of friends have stayed in touch and I have always been able to call them in my time of need and they have always listened to me, even if it is just on the phone or in a letter. I haven't really made too many friends here but I have some close family members from my husband's side that I also consider my friends. I take my friendships seriously and always try to make time for them. I know these days people are so busy but it's always important to make time for your friends, we always need them at times in our lives. So as you can see, friendship is a very important role in my life:) So yes, my friends are for real, I expect them to be because I am a real friend to them.

Good for you, for having such genuine friends. I guess it just goes to show what kind of a person you are... you're genuine too. It really happens that way... whatever we give to others is given back to us, eventually.

Yah, i can say that my friends are for real.. They always there to give me support and suggestions when i'm totally down and depressed.. Well, true friend are still whenever your in your lowest moments not only in your happy moments.. Also true friend can also be your sister, they are my sister too. Because i can trust them to all of my secrets and they talk behind my back and if i commit mistake, they always there to knock my head and say that i dont need to do that again..
