Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies.
I have been observing my relationships with my friends, and their relationship with each other, along with other people friendship relations for sometime now.
It seems that every kind of relationship has it ups and downs, and it is common to see two close friends seperated and even at times becoming enemies after years of good relation.
Usually there are two sides of the story, what we here the most is that the other party turned out not to be a ‘Real’ friend!
So what is the definition of a ‘Real’ friend? Is there really a ‘Real’ friend and ‘Unreal’ one? Shall we expect perfectness of those human beings who happened to be our friends? Why would we cut someone off just for a small mistakes he/she does?
I know that it is disappointing, especially when you have much faith in the person you believe is your friend, and do expect certain kind of behaviour in return, but we are humans. We do mistakes. We ought to learn how to forgive our friends the same way they do forgive us. We have to respect their duties towards themselves as much as we respect our own duties. And yes, why not accept some shortages? No one is perfect.
Let us move beyond examining our friends if they can be ‘Real’ ones, and actually trust them enough to make them a real friends for a lifetime.
