Finding Real Friendship in Silence

in #life5 months ago

They say true friends are hard to find, but once you find them, you are bound to a life-long relationship. The way we befriend others and the type of people we call friends are facts that define us.

There should be no hidden interests and concealed feelings in our relationship with true friends. The very essence of friendship is honesty because from this foundation we can start building trust. And what is a friend if not somebody you can trust and rely on?


In fact, friends are often those we first turn to when we are in trouble or at a crossroad. Friends, and not family are those we call at any time because we desperately need to talk to somebody or we need a favor.

Being able to rely on somebody is a good sign that you are on your way to developing true friendship. Nevertheless, friendship is more than that as we don’t look only for mutual help and trust in our friends.

Friendship is often based on common interests and shared ideals. The people you best get along with are those who have the same view, and opinions as you and those who gladly invest their free time in the same leisure activities as you.


There are many ways in which we can describe friendship as we are adaptable beings and each relationship has its unique dynamics. One thing that is often the ultimate sign of true friendship is the ability to share silence.

You know that you are in the presence of a real friend or someone truly special when you can simply stay next to that person without saying anything and, most importantly, without feeling awkward about it.

With how many of the people you call friends can you do this?
