Yea, it’s been long since I’ve put up a post. And I have an exam tomorrow.. Nevertheless, here I am blogging. But this post was meant to happen weeks ago!
When we are kids, a friend is easy to come by. A friend is someone who wears the same sneakers as you and shares their sandwich with you in lunch breaks. Someone who you know you’ll see everyday in classrooms and someone who is a constant in your life. We find people that are really just like us, and who stay with us.
But as we get older, and as school turns into classes scattered across a huge campus, friends become harder to come by. Without the constant socialisation and the ample free time we once had, a friend is something you have a hard time carving out of your busy schedule. The ones you had slowly drift apart.
As time passes, we realise that friendship is not really about the quantity but the quality. It’s not just about who you know but how well you know who! During these times we have the “real friends“. The ones who are there when you need them the most because they genuinely care about you and the ones who you can have conversations with a deeper level because you trust them. Your friendship — your love — is communicated in unspoken inside jokes, in hugs, and in tear-inducing laughter!
Sometimes we don’t thank these friends enough — for being there, for loving us, for being able to exist in the sidelines because of our busy schedules but who come back into our lives when the opportunity arrives. We owe them so much, and they are such a huge part of who we are.
So, go ahead,look through your contacts list and find your top 5 treasured people an tell them why you love the them! Do it now! Seize the day!
Friends are like stars, they come and go. But the ones that stay are the ones that glow! – Roxy Quiksilver
