SCHOOL TIMES : Value of true

Everyone in this world wants someone to appreciate their good deeds or else they will stop doing anything important. Friends are the only ones to appreciate you even if you are doing something stupid because they know you have the capacity to bloom and soar high in the sky one day. Each and every person in the world requires a soul mate. They need a person who can understand them and help them in every step of life. Only that person can be a true friend.

A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though he knows that you are slightly cracked. We meet many people in our daily lives but only few will make a lasting impression on our minds and hearts and these are the people who will always remain important to us. A true friend has got a million ways to make you laugh. He will look out for you and will always hold your back. He will be there when something isn’t right and won’t leave you until it becomes alright again. He won’t mind if you change important plans you’ve made. He won’t even mind if you forgot his birthday! Instead he will try to know your reason why.

True friends are those who don’t even mind going through numerous ups and downs because he knows you are with him and he believes in you.

True friends will never let you do anything that you will regret. He won’t laugh when you are having a bad hair day. He won’t make fun of your dorky glasses and won’t mind your shabby clothing. Anyone can stand by you when you are right, but a friend will stand by you even when you are wrong.

If you ask god for gifts, never ask for diamonds, pearls or riches but ask for the love of true real friends. If you fail to do this I assure you that you’ll regret your whole life, as friends are more valuable than anything else. So, go out there and appreciate your true friends before its too late.
