What’s the Importance of Friendship?
Recently I’ve lost a valued friend from my life due to personal circumstances. Since the moment we began to communicate we would regularly laugh, joke, cry and share heated discussions together but within all this the friendship felt and would remain as solid as a rock. Since the absence of my friend I can honestly say I feel like a small part of me is missing and I know a lot of you will be aware of how this feels because I’m guessing some of you have felt it too. Right now what used to feel pretty calm inside of me feels kind of chaotic and ever so slightly jumbled which made me begin my journey into thinking about what friendship is, what it’s all about and how it’s beauty really touches our hearts.
” A friend is someone who believes in you when you have ceased to believe in yourself “
To me this quote explains all to well what friendship is about. Friends never leave your side even during bad times and when your with a friend there’s no need for words because even the silences are understood.
So as a tribute to friends everywhere I have collected a few quotes from the hearts of those close to me so that we can come together and see and feel the truth when it comes to true friendship. Many people fail to recognise the importance of friends in life so I hope something within all this may encourage you to go and communicate with someone who really needs and values your true friendship. Please add any extra comments and quotes below. Peace and Love to ALL friends out there, their not to be taken for granted whatever the weather.
