One True Friend is Better Than Thousand Fake Friends

Updated on October 3, 2012


Having a lot of friends mean a lot. You are happy if you have many companions. You are always with them and you laugh together. But have you ever asked yourself and imagined if "will they still be there in times when you cry? When you're in trouble. Or during you're darkest days?"

Once in my life, i was betrayed by my friends. They are the people whom I thought I could count on, but they left me when I was so down and had troubles. Whenever I think of problems, I never get worried because I was expecting that they would be there for me. But i was totally wrong. They left me without letting me know what was wrong. I tried to reach out to them but they went away.

I am happy to have them despite of what they did to me. They're still a part of my life and my past. They taught me to be strong and because of them, I woke up from the reality of what true friendship really is.

Now, I chose to have one friend. Only one, but at least, true. She's the kind of friends I can't live without. She's always with me even during I have problems. She's perfect and I can't say anything that is negative about her. She makes me cry, but with joy. We laugh too much that we can't even notice the tear in our faces. I guess she's the true friend i'm looking for.

It doesn't matter how many your friends are. What matters most is "you have great real friends. It's not about the quantity. Friendship is all about QUALITY."

      A lesson well learned. And of course always be the sort of friend to others that you want them to be to you.

      If you have one true friend than you don't really need anyone else. It's a blessing to have anyone that is true to you and when you have them it is important to give as much back to the relationship that has been given into it by the other party.

      Very well said, a true friend can be closer than a sibling and you are blessed to have found each other.
