Friends are life, friends are partners in crime, friends share emotions, friends know your secrets. But who are these friends? Are you thankful for them? We are celebrating thankfulness this entire Thanksgiving month. Join the #ThankfulThursday #ThankYouNote contest and link up with us.Friends

When you think of the word ‘friend’ by default your heart and mind rush back to school! They say if your friendship has lasted for seven years it’s here to stay for a lifetime. But then again have you given a thought to who your real friends are? Are they the ones who wish you on your birthdays and ‘Like’ your photos on social media? Here’s how I see my friends.

#1 Friends – Parents

This might sound boring – but is a truth – your parents are your friends and perhaps the only ones where you arrive at their top priority list. They worry about you, love you, smile with you, cry with you, scold you and adore you. Even if the world forgets you they won’t.

#2 Friends – Life Partner

The person you are spending your life with needs to be a friend first and then a husband or a wife or a partner. If he or she hasn’t become your friend and you can’t share that vibe then there’s something wrong. Working towards it would be a good idea.

#3 Friends – Buddies

Childhood friends, friends from school, locality, classmates, neighbors who have known you since you were tiny crazy things normally stay with you long enough. They are also the ones who might make guest appearances in your lie – not there for long and then meet one day and pick up from where you left. But you know they’ll watch your back.

#4 Friends – Books

Might sound weird for this list – but they’ll never fail you. Books will not just stay but will guide you to be a better person

#5 Friends – Diary/Journal

As kids, we all have written diaries. I found them really good to spill everything. I still write a lot of things – emotions, rants, ideas which I keep only to myself. I find the diary – now Ms Word very therapeutic.

#6 Friends – Yourself

Never underestimate this friend of yours. You yourself are your best friend. There’s always an inner voice that tells you to do things, that inner voice guide you. It’s quite theatrical when that inner voice is giving you the options of good and bad and leaving it to you to decide. But I consider it to be my friend which does help me in a lot of things that I do. I am thankful for it.

I am also thankful for all the friends mentioned above. It is very easy to make friends, but it is also a very complex relationship to maintain. Choose your friends well once you are grown up. Not everyone deserves a friend like and you deserve the best of the best.

    I loved the idea of making self a friend, Tina. A different side of this week’s prompt, I must say.

    That’s a cool list! I totally agree with all of them. I started writing when I was very low and found it like a good release. I could just say stuff and not worry about being judged.

    Books are a different choice for this list but they sure are our friends. Being a friend to ourselves is something most of us don’t give a thought to. Good list, Tina. 🙂

    Loved this post. Yes, parents, spouse, my kid and books are my best friends. School friends, some are still close. But many have drifted away. Don’t even know where they are now!
