What kind of friends do we need?

November 9, 2007 9:52am CST
I experienced a dark time last week. Firstly I lost a relative of mine, then a friend far away suddenly turned his back on me but I don't know why, then I had a fever for three days, losing my voice and therefore lost an important opportunity. All of these made me depressed and not want to do anything. Thanks to my friends, everything has returned to normal. I often wonder what my life will be like without my three friends. One thing is sure that I can't stand such life. We three have been together for five years and during these five years, we have lunch together almost every day. Because of you ,my friends, I come to work happily every day. Becuase of you, my friends,I can stand such boring and dull job, Also because of you, I seldom feel lonely because we sing together, we climb hills together, we take photos together. Still because of you, I can laugh and cry so freely in my thirties. Why to devote all your life to seeking a lifelong friend that may not exist? why to pursue a friend who you can share everything with? In fact the loneliness planted deep in your heart need to be chewed by yourself and needn't be shared with others. What we need is someone who at a certain time can talk with you, sing with you, smile with you, and someone who will make you happy, relaxed, moved for a while and someone you will miss sometimes.

Actually, as far as i am concerned, life is not so easy for people, everyone can be in trouble, in their depressed mood. We need friends, maybe someone with whom we can exchange the thoughts deep at the bottom of our heart. Cheer up! Work happily and enjoy your life!

I think we need friends that are honest with us even if we dont like what we hear. people who look out for our best interest. People who we can share the good and the bad times.

Your discussion makes me both happy and sad. The only friends that I have that I feel very close to right now are online friends. All of my offline friends have drifted away from me, and I'm having a hard time trying to get them back into my life. Just a couple of days ago I ran into a friend at the store, a guy I had once been so close to that I would let him hold me when I cried, and yet had nothing to say to him. It was a sad moment for me, and I imagine having people to climb hills with, and sing together, and take photos together, like you have. What I have instead, however, is friends that I speak to online, or on the phone, whom I can tell anything to. They are kind to me. Some of them have been with me for a while now, and others are newer. But they make me feel not lonely, even if just for a little while, and I definitely miss them when they or I can't get online.
