Hey dear readers,
Today I want to write an article on which you can give your opinion. I recently had some trouble with some friends of mine and for me; a friendship is based on a lot. For me, it’s important that my friends care about me, that they show me and let me know. Just a simple message would make my day. Lately a lot has happened in my favorite country, and none of them has taken the time to ask me how I was doing and feeling about all of this. I mean, they obviously know my love for this country.
But that’s not all of it and I’ll explain what I mean. I’ve a friend, who I’ve never met in real life. We met through a fan base for a guy named Nathan Sykes. We became good friends and we shared and talked a lot. She told me about a guy she liked and I did the same. A few months later, we Face Timed and ever since then, we talk about almost everything. I told her about my trouble with my friends, the pain it caused me and what it did to me that they seem to care less about me. She told me that she would always be there for me and I told her the same. We’re best friends ever since. I help her often with her thoughts and she does the same for me.
This is what I’m looking for in a friend. Someone who wants to listen to you, respects your sayings and tries to help you. That’s what I think it’s the most important in a friendship. We talk everyday and I’m so glad that we started to talk; otherwise we wouldn’t have come this far with our friendship.
I truly miss my colleague Mark. Every time I feel lonely or a little bit sad about something, I think of him. I think of our happy moments during my internship. I remember those days when he asked me what was wrong, and that one day that he wanted a hug. That other day when he placed his hand on my shoulder, saying that it would be okay. Reminding how much a guy can mean to you. I can’t wait until I see him again in August. Those moments will never fade away, and even though we talk less through phone, I still see him as one of the best friends I ever had. I would’ve been miserable without him during my internship, based on my strict bosses. But he helped me through it and those days he felt miserable, I did the exact same thing for him as he did for me. Plus, I helped him recently with his exams, a huge project he had to make. I’m glad that I could help him and I truly hope that he’ll get his diploma.
Let’s go back to my question for you guys. What do you need in a true friendship? I mean, we all need our friends to have around us during hard times, right? Or just sometimes hear from them that they care about you and that you mean a lot to them. I think we all want to hear that sometimes. And of course you should be happy with your friends, I truly am. But when they act like this, it’s hard to be happy with them, am I right? Or am I completely wrong? Let me know your opinion in the comments below. I’m very curious about your thoughts.
So one more time: What do you need in a true friendship? And am I right about the part that is written above this question?
Lots of love, ‘Daphne’
