Can you survive loneliness ? ?

Friendship

Great friendship enhances the quality of life.

Deep and lasting friendships don’t  just happen.They require focus,energy,patience,and skill to form and maintain.

Good friends will enhance your journey through life in more ways than you can imagine.

Invest in a few. You don’t need a lot. This is one of those cases when quality is more important than quantity.

  1. Loneliness s the bitter part of everyones life. We have everyone around us but still we feel lonely deep inside …y is that ? Some how we will survive with this sweet and bitter part of lonely in the expectation of meeting some one who can just know you completely in and out.. Sad part is do such person exist for you.?

    • Tuudas ji ,thank you.
      Very deep philosophical unanswerable question you have raised .
      And lo …surprisingly the song you mentioned gives the answer.
      ( Mere Geeton Mein Apna Naam Suna Ho Aawaz Ko Pehchaan Le 
      Aur Meri Uski Kahin Mulaqaat Ho )
      I am sure the romantic person of yours surely listening to you.
      Thank you for stopping by .Love your response and the lovely suitable song reference

  2. It’s rare you get such a friend who as Tuudass ji told who knows you in and out and accepts as who you are not expecting a bit of you to change and to whom at the end of the day we just can pour our heart out without any inhibition and you completely trust yourself with. But if you have someone like that just hold on to them. Never let them go. For such friendships are hard to come by and lasts a life time.
    Lucky and blessed are them who can boast of having a person like that in one’s life.
    Don’t you agree Sri?

    • True Ana what you said.
      Couldn’t agree more both yours and Tuudass Ji’s statement.
      And I add one more RARE to your RARE.
      It’s very very very rare to find such a friend in this world populated with selfish people.
      Getting Trusty worthy friend is a God’s gift.
      I feel just one such friend is more than having hundreds of friends as we witness in Facebook.
      Having a trustworthy friend in offline is easier since we know them personally and meet and chat regularly.
      But online friendship especially unknown people altogether a different and difficult matter.I takes a longtime but still worthwhile if the mutual trust factor is established.
      Your last para summarizes my point.
      “ Lucky and blessed are them who can boast of having a person like that in one’s life.”
And I agree this point of yours Ana and 100%
      Thank you Ana for stopping by.

  3. I make friends that continue to be my friends thru life unless they end up moving further away or pass away. And even then, they are always in the compass of my heart. They are what helps us to have a magical kaleidoscope through which to view the world. Being a woman, I think we take our friendships in a very different way than men do, sharing our deepest secrets in life and our feelings about different things. Men tend to keep conversation on a more public plane, at least that has been my experience thru some nearly 78 long years. I think there have been a couple of rare ones along the way, but in general, men are raised not to share their feelings. Who does not remember hearing this: “Big boys don’t cry.” or “Come on, man up!” and a number of others. I think there was a book that came out years ago called Iron John, and it talked a lot about this. I am not saying that there are NO men who are able to share their feelings. Just not any of the many I have met along the way. Friends have to be willing to trust their friends with their thoughts and feelings. We just have to have a sense that it is safe. And if, for some reason along the way, we become no longer able to trust a long-time friend, we have to find new ways to talk to the person as an acquaintance, or perhaps without anger, just write them off our friend list and be unavailable to them.

  4. Thank you Anne Copeland.
    How true it is when you said “They are what helps us to have a magical kaleidoscope through which to view the world”,yes they are the ones who come to our rescue in so many ways.
    And you have so well explained the difference between friendship among men and the friendship among women.
    Majority of men are brought up in a different way compared to the ladies.Whom do you think responsible for this ? Are not parents to be blamed ??
    And I wish every friendship be like what you described
    “Friends have to be willing to trust their friends with their thoughts and feelings. We just have to have a sense that it is safe. And if, for some reason along the way, we become no longer able to trust a long-time friend, we have to find new ways to talk to the person as an acquaintance, or perhaps without anger, just write them off our friend list and be unavailable to them.”
    And it is very very rare to get such a beuatiful,loving caring and understanding friends.
    May be women are lucky to some extent.
    Thank you again for these thoughts
