Have you ever found it difficult to make friends? Do you even know what qualities you should look for when picking your friends?
As a college student, it is difficult to make time for friends and it is harder to find the time to form those deep friendships. Many of us have friends in our lives over the years but as we grow older, we lose contact to some of them. Other friends may be stay in touch with us but slowly we lose touch because of busy schedules. But then there is that last group of friends that the bonds run so deep and we call them true friends- when they come in to your life, cherish it!
During my college- challenging part of my life- there were individuals that I consider my truest of friends. They were the one who saw me through best and tough times. They picked me up when I was down and they stood by me when I felt alone. They loved me without judgment and expectations. These true friends were always there for me; not always in person but always in heart. True friends help us grow and change for the better. They support us in good times or in bad times.
But what about if you have two best friends? Having two best friends will always be better than having just one but having two best friends can be a lot more complicated than dealing with just one.
These are few disadvantages and advantages of having a two BFFs:
- Two is always better than one. You have two supporters even one of you always ends up feeling left out.
- It’s bad when you hear they went somewhere without you which leaves you wondering what the two of them say about you.
- Any text is now a group text.
- You always have someone to stay in with and you always have someone to go out with. There’s always someone available for everything.
- You have a second opinion when you don’t like the first one and an argument will always have two sides for you to choose from.
- You always end up having to tell the story twice.
- When you go out, everything is cheaper because you share.
Two people is a friendship. Three is a family. True friends secure a place in your heart forever. A strong friendship doesn’t need daily conversation, doesn’t always need togetherness as long as the relationship lives in the heart, true friends will mever be part.
“A true friend is the greatest of all blessings.”
