What’s friendship? I am not even sure myself, I’m still trying to figure it out. :) I do know that friendship is delicate, not easy, and very hard to find. Real friendship takes trust, love, time, and lots of effort. I’ve always heard, “Friendship is hard to find, but easy to lose.” I completely disagree with that, I think that friendship is hard to find, but once you find it, if it’s true, you gain a bond with a person that is very special to you. It’s a bond that you don’t share with anyone else, it’s extraordinary. It shouldn’t be easy to lose, because if it is, was it ever true? Friendships shouldn’t even be hard honestly, the compromises, the time taken out for each other, the shoulder to cry, to laugh on — is all done out of love. You do those things because you genuinely care for someone, so it’s not hard either. Friendship can also suck. Finding a true friend, a really great feeling to feel, getting hurt by someone you trust, love, and care for, one of the worst feelings in the world. I personally have had a lot of friendships where it wasn’t real, just pretend. Those types of friendships, that are one-sided or fake, don’t just hurt the person that actually cared, it can shape their way of thinking very negatively. After realizing that someone you actually care and love didn’t ever love or care for you, it makes you feel alone. It makes you want to close off to the rest of the world and never put faith in someone again because it just might happen again. Friendships are beautiful, yet very delicate, full of happiness, yet full of darkness, can teach you to love, can make you hate, and lastly, friendship is a bond, yet sometimes it can be faked.
