All our lives, we have been meeting people, meeting friends. They come in all shapes and sizes, colors, sounds and smells. Everywhere we go we are introduced to new ones. As children we meet friends in school, at the park, at parties or we even become good friends with other kids in our extended family like cousins. As we grow older the playing field becomes more diverse; work, in-laws, co-parents in school, a seat mate on an airplane or airport terminal or your husband's friend's wives. But somehow the classifications are the same, to me at least. From way back when I was a kid, I have come to know the following kinds of friends. I will save the worst for last...
- Adorable Friends
- Friends Forever
- Friends you respect
But we are here on this earth to be one with the rest of the population. I totally believe that we are not meant to be alone. We have to cope, we have to accept and be a friend to whoever needs one. We need to learn to be a person, the best one we can be all the time.
I am so lucky to have in my list the most wonderful friends anyone can have, be it my bestest friends, really good friends or friends that simply make me smile. Friends keep me sane. I used to take my friends for granted but somehow as I got older, I began to appreciate them more.
Let us not forget that people do think of us and are grateful too for our friendship.
Any other type of friend I have left out?
