Friends are the family we choose. They are people we love to spend time with. They give us company when we are lonely despite our shortcomings. They accept us for what we are not what they want us to be. They choose to be with us even in our bad times.

Recall that worst moment of your life when you are all alone and remember that one person who stood by you in those horrible hours. It could either be a parent, teacher, sibling, or a close friend. Mostly it was a close friend who was there for you comforting encouraging and supporting. They provide constant support. They are the family we get to choose.

Friends play a very significant role in one's life. They make celebrations fun and help us to be ourselves. They support us unconditionally and accept us completely for what we are. What friends do for us cannot be described in words. Also we feel very much comfortable, sharing our things or secrets with friends which one may feel shy to share with siblings or family.

Friends give us a devoted feeling of love to which we can share anything about our life and care for each other always. A friend is someone who understands and appreciates other one without any exaggeration. True friends never becomes greedy to each other instead they want to give something better to each other in life. They are the loyal support for each other who aimlessly support during bad moments of life.

Friends share each other’s emotions or sentiments which bring feeling of well being and mental satisfaction. A friend is a person whom one can know deeply, like and trust forever. They understand us like no one else in the world. They choose to be at our side no matter what situation comes. They guide us whenever we lost our path. They understand our problems and provide best solution.

Not just that, friends help us grow as well. They are guides who come into our lives, play their roles and move on. Don’t we all have friends who we were very close to at one point, but with whom we are no longer in touch with now? They drifted away from our life when their role as guide was over.

Friends trust and support each other without showing their vanity and power to each other. They have sense of equity in their mind and know that anyone of them may need care and support anytime. Dedication and trust is very necessary to maintain the friendship for long time. Sometimes greedy people become unable to lead their friendship for long because of the lots of demands and lack of satisfaction. Some people make friendship just to fulfill their interests and demands.

Friends are the most precious gift from God. A person is called very lucky having true friends in his or her life. They give us memorable, sweet and pleasant experiences of many types in the life. Searching a true friend is not an easy process, sometimes we get success and sometimes we lose because of misunderstandings to each other.

Friends can be both types good or bad, good friends lead us on good path whereas bad friends lead us on bad path, so we should be careful while choosing friends in life. Bad friends can be proved very bad to us as they are quite enough to ruin our life completely. We need someone special in our life to share our feelings (happy or sad), to talk someone to remove our loneliness, to make laugh someone sad and many more. In the good company of our friends we get motivation to do any hard work in life and it becomes easy to pass bad times cheerfully.

We must be very careful while choosing a right person as our friend as we may get cheated by someone. Also getting a right or true friend is very hard for everyone and if one gets it, he is called very lucky. A good friend always supports in bad time and suggests to go on the right path.

It is important for us to have friends but many of us find it difficult to strike up a friendship. If we keep a few things in mind, it shouldn’t be difficult to make friends. The first is to start a relationship with the right expectations. Don’t expect too much. If you start with high hopes, the relationship is likely to flounder. For anyone to fulfil your expectations, they need to understand what is expected of them. This understanding takes time.Besides, expectations are always two-sided, so having low expectations ensures the same from others. One of the drawbacks of starting a friendship with high expectations is that at every step, you start judging the person and his actions. There is a constant dialogue going on in your mind where you are trying to judge if the person is fitting into your definition of a friend.

If you are too judgemental, you might focus only on the negatives and miss out on some of the finer qualities your friends might possess. People don’t necessarily have to fit into your image of a good person. There are many other ways in which people can be good. Also, if every person in your life fits into your definition of good, chances are that all the people in your life will be alike.

In any relationship, and especially in friendship, it is important to communicate clearly what you are feeling. Honest communication leads to the right expectations. Always speak frankly about the way you feel. This ensures that your friend understands you for who you are and not the image that she might have created in her mind. It also ensures that there is complete acceptance and trust in the relationship.

So what I feel is that -

"Searching a good friend in the big crowd of people is as hard as searching a diamond in the coal mine."
