I found two posts by 2 bloggers and it really does voice out from my heart in the situation I am facing right now. Where I tried so hard and my efforts are in vain… Thank You to the authors of beauty80 and Things I’ll Never Say for the two touching posts and it does touch my heart.
Below are the two posts that made my day and let me know that I am not the only one who is going through this or went through this….
I thought we’re friends. Like close friends. But recently, just recently. I’m feeling no connection at all. No conversation. Empty. Maybe i was wrong, i kept myself assuming we’re friends. Or maybe i’ve done something wrong? I don’t know. and I don’t care.
Yeah. Just now, I don’t care.
Then, there is a new friend of mine coming to me. Telling me her problems in life and friends. It was touching, of course.
She told me “I’m tired looking for real friends here in college”,
i told her. “Hey, don’t i look like a real friend to you?”
… then, a new friendship was born. I’m hoping this friendship to last long.
Simple vs Real – FRIENDS
Anyone can stand by you when you are right, but a Friend will stand by you even when you are wrong…
A simple friend identifies himself when he calls. A real friend doesn’t have to.
A simple friend opens a conversation with a full news bulletin on his life.
A real friend says, “What’s new with you?”
A simple friend thinks the problems you whine about are recent.
A real friend says, “You’ve been whining about the same thing for 14 years. Get off your duff and do something about it.”
A simple friend has never seen you cry. A real friend has shoulders soggy from your tears.
A simple friend doesn’t know your parents’ first names. A real friend has their phone numbers in his address book.
A simple friend hates it when you call after he has gone to bed. A real friend asks you why you took so long to call.
A simple friend seeks to talk with you about your problems. A real friend seeks to help you with your problems.
A simple friend, when visiting, acts like a guest. A real friend opens your refrigerator and helps himself.
A simple friend thinks the friendship is over when you have an argument.
A real friend knows that it’s not a friendship until after you’ve had a fight.
A simple friend expects you to always be there for them. A real friend expects to always be there for you!
