Friends & Friendship

Somewhere last week, I received a message from an ex-course mate from Western Kentucky University. I hadn’t heard from him in years. In that same week, I received lots of messages on my Facebook from people I’d known while studying and working in US – and to hear from them again was great. All their messages were very uplifting, supportive and sincere - they were genuinely happy that I am doing so well.

I have friends whom I don’t have to call, email or sms on a regular basis but who will be up front and centre if I ever need a helping hand. My directors are the best type of friends anyone could possibly hope to have because they have stuck with me through the literally lean times and I know I can count on them to take the company to the great times ahead with me.

Don’t take the word friends and friendship lightly. You have to fully understand what it means, and be able to live the definition before expecting the same for yourself. And if you’ve found some pretty good ones – take care of them and never take them for granted. Unless you like the same being done to you.

I had a bunch of friends when I was in high school. We were a tight knit. We do almost everything together. Then we grew up and went our seperate ways. Through the years we have changed but we will always treasure each others friendship. It's been 9 years now and I'm glad for once I didn't listen to my mom by being friends with them. I am quite fortunate to have also found a bunch of friends in uni that I can count on. They are the reason I am still here standing today. "If you want to know who your friends are, get yourself a jail sentence", I don't think I have to do that now that I've found them.

I'm glad to have true friends around me too, through ups and down. Things would changed pretty much these few years if not because of them. Just cherished them and let them know that you'll always be there for them..

Kawan semasa senang,
Mudah Di Cari..
Bila Susah,
Banyak kawan yang lari..

We have a lot of friends, but not all can be our true friends. Sometime, a friend just want to take advantage on us. A good friend is the one who always with us, giving support on whatever we do & always be there when we need help. Not just while having fun..

Many people will walk in and out of your lives... then it's time to 'walk on'

But only true Friends leave footprints in your heart... and they will Never Walk Alone!

Friends are always our good accompany. A good friend is the one appreciate the quality time we spent. And sincerity regards from time to time. We don't need to meet our good friends everyday, but we trust each other well and always want each other do better in life. That is the definition of my "friendship".

Before you worry about friends are good to you, the question is are you a good friend to others?

'Friend' is a meaningful word to people who really understands it. You may have a lot of friends, but you may only have few true friends. The one who can't be moved or bought, the one to pull you up from darkness and despair...and the one who will go with you all the way to the end. That's a true friend you would want to have.

Friend is ME and ME is Friend.

If you got betrayed before, you will always keep reminding yourself with the statement above.

Friends will "use" each other no matter how close you and bestest friend in life. When comes to getting credits, who will say is not Mine?
