Do you look your friend as brother or sister?

If I ask the same question to myself, I would say Yes and NO. At times you dont want to look at someone as sister or brother and at times you really wish to have that person as bro or sis.

I feel a friend a is a person who can't be compared to any relation so i can not feel my friend as a brother or sister. But we must be careful in selecting friend and we must be much careful in inviting them to our lives because all the friends can not be as good to us as our brothers or sisters are to us.

Hi There! Welcome year 2009! Yes, I treat my friends like my brother and sister since they have been my friend for very long time and they are like my second family aside from my real family. If I cannot tell something to my parents, they are the ones I go to, to seek for advice… I am fortunate to have friends like them because they are really good people who wishes me nothing but good… they mean no harm… they would really tell me the truth if I need to hear it… I can entrust my life with them… that is why I treat them like my family already! Thanks for the discussion! Happy Mylotting! Cheers!

No, it’s always been different with me. I don’t keep friends closer that’s why. I had a close friend from college and since, she’s always been the only friend I go out with aside from my sister. But then, I always respect her knowing she’s not a family. Respect her when it comes to her decisions in life. My treatment to my sister is different. I do respect her as well but the communication is different. The feeling is different. I can’t please a friend easily unlike with my sister.

Your started discussion reminds me of my friends who just visited me yesterday. I was very much surprised seeing them waiting for me inside our house.I was out all day and when I arrived home, they were there already. It had been so many years that we are not seeing each other.I can say that we are treating each other like real brothers and sisters for so many years. Even we not see each other for a very long time, still in our hearts, the spirit of friendship is always there.We had been and have been to each other in ups and downs in our life. One for all, and all for one. That is what we are. If someone has a problem, he or she will not carry it alone. We are here to help him or her.If there is a gathering and it happen that there is one in us who is not there, it seems the gathering is so incomplete and not that happy.I love my friends and so they are to me. I treat anyone of them just like the way I want to be treated.When I meet someone and be his or her friend, I keep to it that I will treat him as a friend only-- no more, no less. I not want to treat my close friends especially the opposite gender more than a brother. It is because I am afraid that it might cause some bad changes on the friendship. For me it is much better to stay in friendship rather than going beyond on that.
