“But friendship is precious; not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine.” – Thomas Jefferson
Some people say they have lots of friends. But we can count real friends on our fingers, only two or three.
The sporty guy who is always surrounded by people but he can’t trust anyone. The boy who makes fun of others that are alone during break time. The “perfect girl” who is followed by the other ones and that say she has many friends probably wants everyone to like her. That’s not friendship. It is people just playing their pre-determined roles.
The boy that seems to be shy quietly sits near another one and asks his opinion about the sports techniques of last evening’s football match. The intelligent girl that seems to study the whole time passes most of her afternoon talking to her best friend. They have a true friendship.
Being a friend doesn’t mean to take thousands of photos of you both or to have matching necklaces. Friends fight, cry, laugh, and make fun of each other. They get in trouble together. They are ALWAYS TOGETHER.
Never forget that “friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.’” - C. S. Lewis.
