A Loyal Friend

Loyalty is very important for stability of any bond and when you find a friend that qualifies this virtue of being true to you, your life is so much sorted. We all long for a friend who we can always turn up to as our support; bond of friendship is about being respectful and accepting towards each others weakness or flaws, after all we are all ‘perfectly imperfect’- isn’t it ! 

My Everything Friend

You magnify my happiness
When I am feeling glad;
You help to heal my injured heart
Whenever I am sad.

You’re such a pleasure in my life;
I hope that you can see
How meaningful your friendship is;
You’re a total joy to me.

A friend is our confidante, an assurance that we have someone to guard us emotionally, at times- only presence of a friend is enough to make us feel secure in any adverse situation we face. 

Loyalty in friendship cements the relationship making it stronger as it grows with time. That’s how you win over a friend and earn respect. You never dread the feeling of being alone as you have someone to pour your heart out, discuss your inhibitions/ fears, seek opinions without fear of judgement. Basically being faithful ….

When you are willing to invest your true feeling of care, attention, love for your friend you earn it back as well. When you devote your time it means a lot and shows your concern for the other person- it forms real bonds, that’s the best & biggest reward that you get. We all want to have someone who will be there for us when we need them the most.  In the long-term, a loyal friendship will yield you happy harvest as it’s an implicit promise that  you are worth keeping around. A loyal friend nurtures you as a person- source of positivism in your life, is kind & compassionate- overlooks minor issues that might erupt, no room for pretension- you can be yourself!

 

“The strong bond of friendship is not always a balanced equation; friendship is not always about giving and taking in equal shares. Instead, friendship is grounded in a feeling that you know exactly who will be there for you when you need something, no matter what or when.”   -Simon Sinek

KUDOS…. to all our crazy friends & all the wonderful memories of friendship 😉

  1. I’ve always felt that the most important service a loyal friend can perform is to tell me – in no uncertain terms – when they feel that I’m acting badly, making a mistake or heading in the wrong direction. Those moments test the strength of a friendship and prove its value. Cheers, Brian
