We have all heard the old saying “a friend in need is a friend indeed“. We all need true friends in our life. A real or true friend is always willing to help us when we need them. At the same time, it is our responsibility to remain helpful towards our friends.
We cannot live alone in society. We need friends for company and conference. A man can receive from his friends what he cannot get from his own people and his family members. True friend are often considered the most valuable asset that a person can possess. But the question is do we still have true friends in our ever changing world? Friends that stand the test of time?
In good times, everybody behaves as if they are our friend. The right occasion to test the friendship of a person is at the time of need,trouble or when something wrong happens. A true friend realizes your need and comes forward to help you voluntarily without any hope of getting back anything in return from you. Such friends are of course very rare, but they are there. Professor Owolabi will always say”A true friend is one who knows you just committed an offence and got arrested,but he still comes to bail you and takes you out for a Drink then tells you”You really messed up”
Good friends are rare in the world, leaving many asking”Do they still exist? A man may have many friends, but it is difficult to get a true friend. There are friends who are often selfish with you. There are friends who are often indifferent to your suffering in life.
Therefore, I suggest we should choose good friends who are really willing to help us and stand by us against all odds. We must avoid those people who come forward with selfish motives because they may put us into trouble at any time.
Selfless service is the essence of true friendship. A true friend proves him-selves by his good deeds no matter what.He or she does not have any selfish motive and is prepared to do anything for the sake of your friendship. He can even sacrifice his life to save the life of his friend.
With so much that happens in my daily life and around me, i have come to believe that True Friendship is better than fame in life and to be a real friend or to get a real friend in life is considered far better and nobler than rubbies and gold.
