Friend

People talk about friends all the time. You have good friends, loyal one, one you can trust, one you can have a coffee and gossip with, one you can trust with your life. When the word friend is dating from? Are our family also considered as a friendly family, or they could be less friendly in occasions? Funny is that children call everyone friend who are nice to them. If we want to be real and objective, look for true honesty, we should than look how children position themselves towards the others in class. So, leading by that we should pronounce every person that approach us nicely as a friend. But is it always like that? As we grow, the term friend changes, and our childhood friends are changing as well. They get into the flow of thinking in a different way. Well, I do not want to say that kids are not thinking at all, contrary they do, too much all the time, but they still have that pure soul, that is clean, and open to world. When do we start changing and transforming from this innocent persons to some let’s not be rude, and say more sharp people? Is it as soon as we hit social life? And more we get surrounded by people, more sharp we are in our way of thinking? I met many people, different nations, different cultures…Sometimes, I connect with some people very well, and I can understand them, they can get my point and we seem happy for a while. Have coffee, meet often, seems like it will last forever… but than things change, and they are gone…I mean they stay around, but they just exit our life, while some friends, forgotten, or the one we did have some heavy words with, we were upset with…they are still there, and they even were not present for a while they turn to be support in different levels. I have one such friend in Belgium…She is as I call her super mum, she can handle kids all alone, and work, and still find time to look my blog :-)…Amazing! And, we met just by incidence in one store in Brussels, one Saturday morning…we met a few times after, and than I happened..I guess, so things changed, and I did not think we will ever be close, or speak again…It was at the moment one of the friendships that you make, but last short term, as an flash of the light, few nice moments, one bad moment and silence. And than, that super mum turns to wake me up one morning, but when I say wake me up – no she did not call me 3 am LOL, but while I was driving, she asked me why you are saying things that are not quite as such!!!!! Respect yourself more!!!!!!! And she woke me up from a limbo phase I was :-)….and that made me think…what word friend means in reality? For me first thing that I was thinking after, was she is a real friend to me, even I do not see her often. Yes, we can have friends, in life, still some for coffee and gossip, some loyal, you stay in touch with and can understand on distance 9 as my ex boss 🙂 or my super mum friend), some friends are in growing phase, some are somewhere, spread in the world, like the dust, and some are gone forever, like my dear Lucy, but good thing is that no matter since when the word exist, or how we call they can be closer than the family, partner or someone that we will think should be a friend…
