„- Hey! How are you? You have not given any sign of life!
– Well, what else to do … good and bad to anyone !!
– What do you mean ?!
– I mean …
– How have you been?
– Well, I’ve been married in the meantime and working now, so my life is unfolding. You? Do not you have any thoughts about marriage?
– Me? No, he says, leaving his gaze in the ground. Now I’m working abroad … I’ve been to a warehouse, something. I worked.
– Oh, that’s good man! Are you okay?
„Yes, I’m fine …” he muttered to himself a few words.
Several incoherent replies followed because the interlocutor did not offer logical words.
True friendship resists time, distance and silence. The example I offer does not fit at all in this pattern, but on the contrary offers the opposite.
When we are children we do not know hate, we are not familiar with envy or other negative feelings; we choose the people around us as they make us feel, we are pure both inside and outside. We do not judge by appearances and preconceived thoughts, we are childish and accept reality as it is.
In this example, people or „friends” are those who disapprove of behavior. An old friend is met by a comradeship worthy of friendship, family not by a few words spoken by the facade, and by an indirect so obvious language.
In this life we know so many people, we become friends with people of various souls and body appearances. Samuel Butler said that friendships are like the money: easy to make and difficult to keep … in the same context, I also conclude that friendships should have nothing to do with money and social status, and that it should be difficult to be made and easy to keep.
I wish you a nice sunday!
