Throughout adulthood, it is easy to lose touch with old friends and it can be hard to develop new friendships. The digital age has complicated this process as well by changing the way friends interact. As phone calls have been exchanged by text messages and social media has replaced the need for face-to-face interaction, gatherings with friends often become fewer and farther between.
But there is growing evidence that genuine friendships may be very important in terms of your personal and professional life. Even as an adult, friends can have a big influence over how you feel, think and behave. Friends are likely to come and go throughout the seasons of your life. Job changes, moving to a new city, and becoming a parent are among the many things that may shift the friendships in your life. The demands of life and a busy career can move friends to the bottom of the priority list at times.
It may be wise however, to re-evaluate the role friends play in your life. If spending quality time with friends isn’t high on your to-do list, it may make sense to schedule a get-together sooner rather than later. After all, friends impact not just the quality of your life, but perhaps even the length of it.
You see we all have ups and downs. Life is like a sine wave. Our friends are also sine waves, funny isn’t it. Alright, so I have 2 friends (stupid, funny, irritating, idiotic, very smart, ethical, you name it and they have it 😛 ), who are really my counterparts in terms of emotional and fundamental thinking. So there is a day when I have to make one very important decision of life, one of them is there just to get my head clear. Below picture clears how the total sum of each of us is always greater and helps us be cool 🙂
If you observe carefully, each of us have a up and down cycle. But when we are together, at any point of time, there wouldn’t be a situation or event, that can make us down at the same. We have our limitations, troubles in life, but when we discuss everything seems to be possible. We fight, we hurt, we torture each other, but that is all just fun. We do not judge, we do not discourage, we do not take for granted, we care and more important of the all we evolve and grow together. We do not have the slightest amount of grudge or hatred. We might be angry for one another, but we never, never ever fall apart. We are stupid, we are smart. We talk quantum physics, we talk Doraemon, we go on tour and we support each other. Life is so cool, when we are around. We fall in love with someone when one of us approves and when love falls apart, one of us is there to ensure life still goes on in the right direction. The waveform completely summarizes what friends are and how things can be so cool.
You see, 2 friends are enough for a life time 🙂 Thank you for reading. Think who are your life time friends. You might have more than two then you are lucky. If you do not have one, then it might be time you make one. In the end, have some friends for life time. To the Friends. Cheers.
