always THERE For YOU
Back in kindergarten, when we first entered the room, we were afraid to talkto anyone. But gradually, we all find that one person who is just like us. Within about a minute, conversations start. There’s a feeling like we knew the other person since birth and from the non, we can’t wait to go back to kindergarten, just to see that one person again. It all starts with the mention of our name and a small hobby, and soon, we are calling each other best friends. The article on friendship (‘ I’ll Be There For You,’ Aug 5) shows that even today, we don’t quite think before calling a person ‘ friend’, yet they make us thankful we call them that. We can have many friends but there’s always this one person with whom we share a bond that is tied by the golden thread of emotions, unified with hopes and dreams. A friend is someone whohas been with us through it all. From tears to smiles. From playful fights to problems. From fears to achievements. From prank calls to late night talks; they’ve been there to hold us when we fall or to give us the biggest hugs when we succeed. Our similarities give us lifelong memories, and the jokes that come with it, just deepens the pure love wes hare. They can know the worst of us but they’ve always stood right beside us whenwe need themto. As a young student, my friends and I share a common fear about losing contact after we step into the real world, but this reminder fades the fear. No matter how distant we are, the love and bond we share can never break us apart. “A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and sings it back to you when you’ve forgotten the words.” Thank you wknd. for highlighting the importance of friendship!
