A Friendship Quote For Your Friend

Send Friendship EcardsA friend is one who knows us, but loves us anyway.” – Jerome Cummings

There’s a bad side in all of us – we have heard that said many times since childhood. But a friend is someone who accepts that side in us and adjusts to it and tries to rectify it occasionally. I can say the same about my friends. We all know that each one of us has shortcomings and deficiencies and we try to deal with that in a way that doesn’t hurt our friendship. That is what should be the crux of every friendship. Our friend may be short-tempered, but that doesn’t make the person any less of a friend. A friend may be slow in taking things up, a friend may also be a control freak. We have to deal with it, for the sake of the friendship.

As I have always maintained, a bond is very special. It takes lots of precious moments to build a bond. But it takes one bad moment to bring it all down. Trust is like a mirror. Once there’s a crack on it, it is impossible to have it back in its original form. If you have a friend who’s not easy to deal with, be patient. Hear the person out and try to look at the problem from his point of view. More often than not, we get caught up in our own ideas and have a mental block in our minds that stop us from reaching out and empathize. And that freezes the bond of friendship.

How do you deal with a friend who’s temperamental or moody? Write in.

  1. Well,first of all i show him that i care and that i am there for him if he needs me.
    Sometimes we make the mistake to take friends for graded.Friendship is like a flower and it always needs water and attention to grow and bloom.

  2. B. Temperamental or moody, huh? That’s all of humanity. I have yet to meet a person who is not. Of course, it varies in degrees from person to person, but I’m not taking notes on it all. You are absolutely right in stating about being patitent with friends. Just people in general, though, I feel is what it’s all about. Going with the flow. God love ’em. I can’t live without ’em. Friends have helped me through so many trying times. Where I am the one who is temperamental and moody. They set me straight. Guide me. Yet, I very much understand about trust . When I tell a friend I will keep a secret, I do so. When I make a promise, it remains a promise all of my living days. My friends can count on me. But if a friend decieves me, where they say they will do one thing and they do the opposite, against me or a my friend(s),well. I just won’t trust them any longer. But I don’t make a big thing about it. I tend to keep it to myself. I have been mistreated by friends in the past. Severely. So much so, that I no longer see them, as they have become so inconsiderate, critical towards me and my friends. Bad vibes. So I hang out with my friends who support me and I them. It is a 2 way street. All my dear friends know they can count on me. All friendship should be this way. B., you are one of my friends and I am with you all the way. This Blog alone displays what you are about, a kind and understanding person who cares deeply about his friends. To say, “bond of friendship” is so very close to the heart. It moves me so. I am very glad to know you. I am like you and love my friends dearly and would almost do anything for them. L.
