Life is more rewarding with friendship. Every day is a chance to meet someone new. It does not matter if you " re at school, work, or just out running around, people are everywhere. Whether you get along with them or not is your choice. In my experiences, I have found there are three different types of friends that help your life run more smoothly.
Many of us meet a good number of friends though work. These would be what we call your "work friends." The more friends an individual has at work the better off that individual is. Often times, fellow employees will help when you " re falling behind in the work schedule. With their plans permitting, they will cover or trade a shift for you if something comes up and you need the day off. When times get tough and your boss is riding your butt, fellow employees will often back you up. Friends at work, make the load a lot less troublesome and stressful.
No one likes to go to a party by themselves. This is where your "social friends" step in. They are the best solution to having a great time in a strange place. There's no commitment involved; just call them up and go have a good time. Conversation is never a bore with a social friend, because they " re only around occasionally so there's a lot to catch up on. Another good thing is that they are always willing to take the wheel when you are a little tipsy.
Friends don't let friends drive drunk. For the most part, social friends are there when you need them and out of the way when you don't. The closest friend that a person could ever have is a long-life friend. Friends such as these are the ones that you can trust with any secret or problem you may have. Whenever you express your problems to them, they may repay you with some advice from a past experience. A good friend will always be there for you, through good times and bad.
Whether it is a death in your family or your child's baby shower, a true friend will be there to support you. When you " re far away from your immediate family, close friends tend to become your family, checking on you making sure everything is going all right. A long-life friend is one of the most important friends you " ll ever make. Whether we are at work, at home, or at play, friends help our lives run a little bit smoother.
You know that you have this type of friend when nothing can keep you from talking to them as if they are always there. Nothing or anyone will ever come between the two of you and you. This is the type of friends that you want and when you have them, you should treasure and treat for all they " re worth. When you have this type of friend, never let go of them. Some friends are very important to us and others are merrily acquaintances. Some friends come and some friends go, but always think that those that are truly your friends will never let go and you will never forget them.
I know now that each day that goes by my life is made more interesting by all of those friendships that I have made and will continue to make in the future.
