What are friends? What is a friend?
Google’s definition of the word friend is this : “a person with whom one has a bond of mutual affection”. I agree, to a certain extent.
In my world, I separate my “friends” into 2 categories. Friends and True Friends.
My definition of friends is slightly different. Friends are people who you talk to in your life. You may or may not talk to them every day but you call them your friend because they know you and you know them. But recently I came to a conclusion. Friends are people who you talk to when you are bored and play a few games with in your spare time. Friends are the people who you seem to be close to but in reality, you don’t know much about them at all.
That’s where True Friends come in. You may ask: Who and what are True Friends? Well, let me explain. My definition of a True Friend is a person you may or may not talk to a lot. You may have never seen them in a long time(e.g 1 week, 1 month or even a year). However, these people are the people you trust the most. They are friends who are almost like your second family. You can trust them with anything, no matter the case. If you are having problems in school; bullying, homework or even failing a class, these True Friends are always there to comfort you. They won’t criticise you if you’ve done something wrong. They will accept you for who you are. Those are True Friends. How do you distinguish a True Friend from just a Friend? Well, it’s very simple really. Your true friends will be have your back no matter how bad the situation is. They will comfort you when you are feeling down and you will do the same towards them. These friends will do the most complicating, challenging task to make you happy. A Friend is just someone who doesn’t really care about your feelings or emotions. They just talk to you about interests that you and them may have or subjects that they are taking next year. I’ve got Friends and True Friends in my life. Many of them actually, and I hope throughout my life I make more people which I would add into that list of True Friends.
I was thinking about a very ironic fact a few weeks back and I messaged one of my friends about it. I only messaged this person because as I said above, I trust this person a lot.
The ironic thing is, I’ve never met this person in real life yet I trust them so much. This was what I told my friend. I told her that I know so many people that live around the world, mainly from my gaming experience when I was little(Minecraft). I have got almost 500 contacts on Skype and here’s the funny thing, more than half of those contacts are people I have never even met in real life. Parents always say “Stay away from people on the internet, they are DANGEROUS!” Sure, some people on the internet are hackers and terrible people that pose a threat to other people but MOST of the people on the internet are extremely nice. The main ironic point was that in my list of True Friends, friends that I trust with anything in my life, most of them were people that I have never even met in real life. They trust me and I trust them. We have created a bond over the internet and that bond with someone else comforts you. Knowing that they are always there for you comforts you in the most pleasurable way possible.
You can probably guess from my posts that I’m not someone who gets to the main point immediately. You would be right if you said that xD
Anyways, what I am trying to say is find out who your Friends and your True Friends are. ALSO, people might tell you that the internet is a dangerous place. It is true, the internet is a dangerous place but it is also a place where you will meet people who you will never forget. Always remember that. Where there is darkness, there is always light and where there is evil, there is always good.
