Who do we call friends? Are they the ones we see constantly, who give us smiles, a handshake and verbally profess their status as our friends? Or are they the ones who hang out with us whenever we are out, or when there are events of some sort going on? Let it be known that there are so many faces in this world, but putting your trust in the right one is similar to trying to find a needle in a haystack.
Whether you like it or not, but in life you only find out who your real friends are when trouble looms. We go through life everyday hoping that we don’t face tragedies and what not, but life’s imperfect and as a result we are bound to come across a few. Who do we turn to? Spiritually, God is our strength, but mortally, who is there to comfort us? Our friends and family, question is, which of these friends are significant in situations like these?
Take a look @ your life now, and ask yourself how many of your so called friends, has had a heart to heart convo with you? Or even just to call to check up on you. Some people may make friends with 10 people today, yet only 1 or 2 or even none of them will come to their aid when life gets bumpy.
Its time we defined who a true friend is. Its time we do away with the “chilling” buddies and look for people who can inspire us in times of struggles and pain. Look for people who will not seek to exploit our happiness and our feelings but look to mend them and handle them like an egg. If you have someone or some people like that in your life right now, use them as yardsticks to measure the rest of the people in your life right now and know who is real and who is not.
I do not call you my brother nor my sister because you are here with me,
I call you my brother or sister because in your heart is where my soul finds peace and tranquillity…
