From unknown to known,
From being fellow bloggers to blogger friends,
From reading to sharing,
From solace to comfort,
From silence to spreading the thought,
You lovely people have stayed with me,
Carried the burden of my unjustifiable words,
Put along with my never-ending emotional tantrums,
And also entertained me with some of my irrational posts,
More so this has all happened without any judgements on my character,
And all the more, you have given me,
A million little things to cherish;
For which I can’t thank anyone of you enough.
All of you, every one of you have always remained,
And will always remain close to my heart.
A big thank you,
And a very Happy friendships day.
For a friend is not one who talks to you everyday, and hangs out with you, who brings you gifts and cuts a cake with you on your birthday, with whom you share all your secrets and with whom you go shopping. He is not someone with whom you just discuss your latest girl crush, or with whom you go out and eat because you are in the mood.
A friend is someone who is simply there for you when you need them, who will sit at home and listen to you while you ramble away all your miseries, again and again. He is someone who will know what’s wrong, with one look, and will not let go until you let go of what you are hiding. He is someone who will laugh at you after knowing, what’s troubling you, but will be with you all the same. A friend is not someone who posts with you 20 different photos on social media, but in the end, forgets that there is a life outside of social media. (I get the irony of posting this on a blog)
Walter Winchell was absolutely right in saying, “A friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.”
