A little thought about friendship

"It is not so much our friends' help that helps us as the confident knowledge that they will help us."
Epicurus (341 - 270 BC) Greek philosopher.

What is frienship based on? Last night was proof to me once again that it doesn't matter how often you see a person - or how rarely in the case of many expats who have their friends scattered across the world - if you make a minimum effort to keep in touch, you will be rewarded with loyal friends, interesting conversations and memories of fun moments shared in the present and in the past. You also know that you'll be able to count on them in the future. The secret is to chose your friends carefully. Whom do you really trust?

What is really boils down to is: Who makes you smile and who can you trust? Unconditional and honest friendship by people who will give you their upright opinion and support you in your dreams and in your projects. Who in return you will provide with reliable encouragement and heartfelt understanding.

Very true words! I have a few very close friends, and no matter how long it has been since I have seen them, it's always the same! It's funny, as you get older, you seem to understand true friendship better. Visiting and following from the You Follow Me hop...hop over to my blog if you like... http://mom4realky.blogspot.com
