The Kinds of Friends You meet in Your Daily Life
Ever since you were a small child, you have had different kinds of friends. It must have been hard for you to value their friendship, but they were with you at the time of need and difficulty. For example, you must have watched the sitcom ‘The Big Bang Theory’ on your cable service provider like Charter Cable. Seeing the behavior of the lead characters like Sheldon, Rajesh, and Leonard must have reminded you of friends like them.
Friends have been the major source of inspiration and situation-savers for us. Whether it was for group-study, tips on breaking a relationship and even lying to your parents, they have done it with ease and at their best. It could amaze you on how you are able to get such type of friends. Seriously, you may think there must be a factory somewhere where they produce such friends. It is like they are programmed to do such things in the given situations without you telling them. Sometimes they can save you from the problematic situation that you are in or they could make it worse. Whatever it is friends are truly needed in our life.
I remember, I had a friend like Chandler of the sitcom ‘Friends’. He had this behavior of passing jokes which weren’t so much laughable and passing sarcastic comments. Like Chandler, he never had the opportunity of having a steady relationship. Forget about steady relationship, he never had a good one. I really felt sad for him whenever he had to go through breakups. Poor thing, it took him a lot of time to finally find a perfect girl who just suited him.
In your entire life, you must have had or at least experienced three kinds of friend – passing-friends, normal friends and best friends. Let us scrutinize the each category of friends. First, it is passing friends or you could say acquaintance. These are the people whose name you know and never cease to find out about their family or hobbies. You may make such friends when you are in a summer camp or while doing a project in school or college. Sometimes you may not remember their face too. These are the kind of friends whom you don’t remember always.
You may make such friends everyday and also meet them. Even if you part with them, it won’t hurt you. Sometimes you would have coffee with them; you still never feel or categorize them as your friend.
The next kinds of friends are the one you can call as social partners. They are more than acquaintance. You know their name, family history, job, and also may share a common hobby. These friends are not your best friends, but are those whom you make at the office or school. You may spend some time with them, but it is only for a required purpose or just because you share a common activity. Maybe they could be your gym partner or dance partner.
The last kinds of the friend are the true friends. They are your best friends. You can say that the friendship you have with them is priceless. They are more than your normal friends and acquaintances. You not only share your common hobbies, you hang out with them regularly. They are just like your best buddies. Almost like your inner soul, these friends will guide you and offer their assistance in times of need and difficulty. You won’t need to ask them for help as they would come forward and give you the help and advice you want.
You can say that they are your childhood friends. They have been with you through your school days, college days and also may become your office colleagues. The relationship you share with them cannot be measured in words as there are no words to express the relationship you have with them. Seriously, whenever your best friend goes out of town, you would miss him or her and would try to constantly message him or her.
Friends are the motivator and life-savers. Frankly, to find a good friend is very difficult and at times you may end up in having a normal friend or an acquaintance.
