    We all need that one person in our lives who we can tell everything to and trust with our lives. Otherwise life becomes so lonely and painful.

    We all want someone to be with us to confide in and be able to tell everything at any time. This we can find in a good friend who will always be with us and help us to solve our problems and never hurt us. Some friends we grow up with and some we meet later in life.

    To our close friend we can share all our worries. This will enable us to keep the friendship going which will last till the end. It is easy to believe someone when they tell you exactly what you want to hear. We may hide our pains but we cant lie to the people who really care for us the most. They know us well and can understand our pains.

    Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. = Unknown

    A true friend gives a love that is true, a love without conditions, and a love that never falters. A true friend can do this because they know that because they are a true friend to you, you will be a true friend to them! Many times this is a notion that is left unsaid, but it is a notion that is understood in all great friendships.- unknown

    Love conquers all.

    When we are angry in any sitution instead of acting like an angry person if we show our love we are choosing to be a great person and we can also show others even in tough times we are able to smile

    Friends know what you want them to know about you
    Best friends know what you dont even know about yourself
    And true friends help you to build yourself from all they know
    Let go of those who bring you down and surround yourself
    with those who bring out the best in you.

    Dear Viji,

    I am sure everyone who has you as a friend is a very lucky person. From your posts I can make out that you are a very sensitive person who always cares about other people's emotions and feelings - this is a quality that makes a person a good friend. After I moved to the US I realized that it is not the quantity but the quality of friends that matter.
    Your friend may not call you ten times a day and you may not speak to them for months but when you catch up it you pick up where you left. You do not have to give each other any explanations or any excuses, your friend always knows that if you were unavailable there was a reason behind it.

    Hi Vijima,

    All your posts are so true,in the sense it makes us feel ya this has happened to us.I think your experience speaks.It guides youngsters like us who are there in this forum.

    And yes about friendship..I realised how good friends I have when I have most needed them in my life.I always believe that timely help is more important than a help at anytime.And thats what my friends have done to me.They meant a lot to me when i needed them the most.Brought a smile when I read your post.

    Re: A friend is someone who believes in you when you have ceased to believe in yourse

    Dear Viji Akka,

    Most importantly, the friends sometimes tell something that we may not want to hear. Their intention is not to hurt us but make us a better person. Even if we get angry at them, they continue to maintain their friendship with a hope that better sense will prevail. They also expect us to tell them how we really feel about something they confide with us. More than proximity, how fondly we feel when we think of friends makes the friendship stronger.
