hmm. this is a bit of a topic. and i hope this is timely as of now.. well, it is just a matter of being available for the important persons during at times when your at your lowest and depressed. and somehow, you needed an encouragements. well, if you are really a friend, you will feel the connection. and so, you would be connected with his or her life. however, that is not always the case. somehow, people managed to be on their own. selfishness and maybe business. but if you are really a good friend, then you would be really a friend. you are connected. just a question that i would like to pose though. were your friends there when you needed them?. as for me, not really..huhu..

No of course, even my husband can't be there when i need him. but it teaches me how to handle the matters on my own. we can't force them to be there always when we need them, they still have some business to do, and i respect it.

certainly you are right. certain people have their own limitations as well. we can't force them to be around. but it is a matter of who is being real and true when at times of worst scenarios. those who are really true and real, will always be there, when you needed them..

wow, that stranger might have known you for some reasons. hehe. well, expectedly and unexpectedly, help do comes at the times when we really needed them the most. may we all be able to find that help sooner and always on time. but i know one who never fails to help, it is the Lord who always come in aid for all of us.. God bless you!

Here's the formula when you are happy or have a lot of money, a lot of people claim to be your friend/s. You will find out which one/s actually really your true friend when trouble comes to your life. I mean seriously, some people that hang around previously, can suddenly disappear when you go broke or sick or something. I do have several friends that stick around no matter how sticky the situation is.

you are certainly right, when money is around a lot of "friends" as they say, will come around and is there for you in having a good times. but when worst times come, they just vanished. hmm. but there are those who remained which i am grateful of. that no matter where i am and what i had been through, they are still around.

In 2005 I had a very severe depression, and one of my friends helped me a lot. She lived in another part of the country, and she wasn't able to visit me or spend time with me, but we kept in touch via the phone and she called me several times each day. She was very worried about me and she kept on insisting that I talk to a doctor. I didn't think that it was neccessary, but she refused to accept that, and she told me that she would come to my town and take me to the doctor if I didn't go on my own. After a while I finally listened to her advice and decided to talk to my doctor, and that was definately the right decision, because I really needed medicine and treatment, and my doctor helped me find a great therapist. I am really grateful that my friend was there for me when I needed it the most, because she helped me a lot.

im sad to say that those friends that i trusted the most since college was the the friends who will ignore me when i needed them the most. i still recall our happy days together that every salary day we all go out to have dinner, sometimes watch movie together and enjoy but so sad coz when i told them im pregnant and i lost my job and the father of my baby left me, they also gone knowing that i need them more now, they might thinking that i will going to ask them for help like financial help or what so ever, though i might need money but im not a kind of person who will borrow or ask from friends or anyone as i rather go to my parents to ask help when it comes to financial matter. the only friend i had today who really help me a lot and even clean my room and wash my dishes is the person i just ignore before, i dont even talk nor text her before, we only have the change to talk via facebook when i invited her and when she found out i lost anything she visited me immediately and since then she constantly visit me and bring me foods. i guess we can only tell who are our real friends during our troublesome time.
