The Language of Friendships

In times of crisis and struggles, we all want someone to turn to. Relationships are important, and therefore friends are important. The word ‘Friendship’ doesn’t quite fit into a single definition, it’s a relationship that cannot be described using words.

Even though I am not a social butterfly, quality counts more for me than quantity does. While it’s good to cultivate a diverse network of friends and acquaintances, I have nurtured a few true friendships over the years.

When I find myself going through a hard time, my friends help me get through it. When I find myself not feeling good about myself, my friends are the ones who lift me up. When I find myself in between sobs, my friends are the ones who make me laugh. When the world turns its back at me, my friends are right there by my side. True friends are the ones who are there for you when you need them the most, and the importance of friendship in our life is beyond any explanation.

During our childhood, friendships help us grow and develop. We play and learn together with friends. As teenagers, friends become all the more important as we go through numerous emotional, physical and mental changes. As adults, friends help us go through the emotional upheavals or the “mid-life crisis” as we endure an entirely new set of problems. I suppose friends are equally important during old-age too, I see my grand dad’s face beaming with laughter and smiles when he is around his friends!

When we cultivate a close circle of friends, living life becomes just a teeny tiny bit easier. On that note, a very Happy Friendship Day to everyone who reads my posts here on WordPress, young or old. I am truly grateful for this WordPress community!

  1. Randy Newman says it best in Toy Story, which my 28-year-old son loved and his children also watch almost daily:

    You’ve got a friend in me
    You’ve got a friend in me
    When the road looks rough ahead
    And you’re miles and miles from your nice warm bed
    You just remember what your old pal said
    Boy, you’ve got a friend in me
    Yeah, you’ve got a friend in me

    You’ve got a friend in me
    You’ve got a friend in me
    You got troubles, and I got ’em too
    There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you
    We stick together and we see it through
    ‘Cause you’ve got a friend in me
    You’ve got a friend in me

    Some other folks might be a little bit smarter than I am
    Bigger and stronger too, maybe
    But none of them will ever love you the way I do
    It’s me and you, boy

    And as the years go by
    Our friendship will never die
    You’re gonna see it’s our destiny
    You’ve got a friend in me
    You’ve got a friend in me
    You’ve got a friend in me

  3. I enjoyed your friendship article very much Saania. You are right! Even as you age friendship is important. I have only a few friends, but they are precious and have gotten me through some tough times in my life. Your writing is very uplifting and I feel inspired with the positive energy. All the best this friendship day.

  4. We all can get caught up in the number of facebook or twitter or whatever is the latest media tool, and how many “friends” we have, but if were in desperate need of a friend, the number that would actually show up, is a very small number of the whole. True friends, as you point out, are there for when we laugh, celebrate, cry, feel lost, and/or we wonder who they are. Sometimes, our best friends will sit with us, and listen, never saying a single thing, but are just letting us know they are there for us. Excellent point, once again.

  5. Feel blessed if you have friends! Some friends will be in your life all the way from childhood to old-age. At other times we make new friends at different phases of our lives. They all become important to us and become a part of us and sometimes are valued just as much if not more than our own family!
