Is your friendship is just an’Artificial Friendship’ ?

Artificial friendship

Does your friendship forge an emotional bond ?

 

Do you not long for that particular friendship which completes you ?

What is the definition of friendship ?

Voluntary relationship between people that lasts a long time and those involved are concerned about each other. It develops from shared interests and experiences and is mutually gratifying. source Psychology dictionary.com

Friendship is not based on sex,or age or other reasons

What is the best part in friendship ?

Don’t you think friendship in the form of shared interests and shared experiences which become memories over the time.

Are you not,the happiest when you cherish these wonderful memories of life,at the time of stress ?

Not just that,even when you both chat or speak to each other,recollecting some of the shared moments,shared jokes,even wondering how the time moving unusually fast,even making that moment wonderful !

What I am stressing is,the shared memories become a life’s Treasure.

Don’t you agree this is the best part in friendship ?

What happens,when friendship is forged ?

Definitely,the concern for each other increases.

Shared interest further strengthens the bond.

These two can happen only when you make a sincere effort to develop an emotional bond,by opening up,since you both are connected by mutual trust’ by this time.

How to make an emotional bond ? (somebody may even call this emotional link or cosmic link)

here I wish to make it clear that there is a difference between physical attraction and emotional attraction and physical attraction is a different subject for some other time discussion.

The efforts for emotional connection must come from both the friends,willing to make sincere efforts.

Four things are extremely important

1. Trust

2. Honesty

3. Sacrifice

4. Zero Ego

If these things are achieved from both sides,automatically emotional link is evolved

Trust – should be 100% .You can share your personal stories of mutual interest, and start bonding,and be sincere and frank.communicate regularly and develop mutual confidence

Honesty –  should be 100%.Be honest in your communications.Prevent miscommunications.

Sacrifice – should be 100%.If Friends happen to be in the same place ,make yourself available Never avoid or give excuses.If you both happen to be in different cities,provide moral support as much as possible constantly.

Ego – Here there is only one solution.. Destroy the ego feelings instantly.
Finally
No one is rich than a person who has a true friend

Just two interesting quotes

How many slams in an old screen door? Depends how loud you shut it. How many slices in a bread? Depends how thin you cut it. How much good inside a day? Depends how good you live ’em. How much love inside a friend? Depends how much you give ’em.”  Shell Silverstein

 

To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world.” Brandy Snyder

  1. Thank you Siri for sharing such a timely, thought provoking post which has certainly help me reflect on difficulties last year with two particular friends. Things progressing now thank God.
    I can’t remember if I told you that I am taking a temporary blogging break to enable me to touch base with my daily journalling. My journalling which helps keep me grounded has been compromised since starting my blog. I need to step back & take the pressure off myself.
    Thank you for sharing your lovely posts and your words of encouragement.
    Take care.

  2. Couldn’t have told much better. Cud chewing on the good old times of growing together as friends about the same journey walked in two paths together is certainly worth it.
    There are times when such friendship comes in handy when one forget to laugh or smile due to life’s pressure upon oneself.
    A soothing word …
    a gentle word of encouragement … a smile on your friend’s face all can just melt away our day’s turmoils.

    And as The Bible teaches…

    John 15:13 Greater Love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends

    If not to this level but be there for them through thick and thin would do.
    As always lovely and meaningful post Sri…
    Hope this friendship lasts a lifetime…

    • Thank you Ana
      Yes cud chewing of old times as you rightly put it takes one into a dream world and the joy one gets is unique.
      And whenever one recollects the fun incidents,happy moments,strange coincidences etc….. it’s a great nostalgia and even boosts ones energy along with joy and happiness.
      Yes if one is responsible for a smile on the friends face…. My God the joy is boundless,and this friend is remembered life long.

  3. Wow …how beautifully you have expressed here about friendship. Some relationship are artificial …but some are beyond any definition. So this kind friendship last for life time. For this we need to know each other completely. It’s not necessarily that even if they are your best frds we need to say yes to yes or No to No . Sometimes we have to be brutally Frank ..
    Thank you so much for beautiful post . God bless.

    • Dear Mermaid Ami,I am thankful to you for your frank opinion.yes,true friend should not be ‘yes’ type.
      Friends can differ on opinions,even fight etc but all remain just for one second only.Then back to fun,jokes, discussion bon different topic etc.Friends should never harbour any grouse.Both play a critical role inthe continuity of friendship.
      God bless you and keep giving your valuable opinions
      If find time give your thoughts on some of my other posts.
      Thanks again
