" A Friend To All Is A Friend To None "

Lary..Myrassol And Alvin

Hello, Happy New Month (JULY 2012)! Yea..I am finally 20, and legally able to do everything I've been doing since 16. Hope my 20th birthday is as special as me. Ekhm..Hey, wait this is my blog so I have to say something about myself (before I talk about friends, let me introduce me myself for ‘July Version’.) Haha! Sometimes it is hard to introduce yourself because you know yourself so well that you do not know where to start with. Let me give a try to see what kind of image you have about me through my self-description. I hope that my impression about myself and your impression about me are not so different. Here it goes.

“I am a person who is positive about every aspect of life. There are many things I like to do, to see, and to experience. I like to read, I like to write; I like to think, I like to dream; I like to talk, I like to listen. I always wanted to be a great motivator, like Dato’ Dr. Mohd. Fadzilah Kamsah who wrote "Tips Pelajar Cemerlang", or like Dr. H.M Tuah Iskandar who wrote "Resepi Pelajar Terbilang". They have influenced millions of people through their books. I also wanted to be a great psychologist, like William James or Sigmund Freud, who could read people’s mind. Of course, I am nowhere close to these people, yet. I am just someone who does some teaching, some research, and some writing. But my dream is still alive.” This is a brief introduction of me. If you are interested in knowing more, add me on Facebook or follow me on Twitter. Do not expect too much, and keep your sense of humor.

Alright, back to the point! FRIEND! Everyone does know what ‘friend’ means. So I don’t need to explain it right. But remember, the language of friendship is not words but meanings. For those who find some friend, when you choose your friends, don't be short-changed by choosing personality over character. You need to know; a friend is one who knows you and loves you just the same. WHY?  When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.

Friendship is a feeling of love and affection of one person for another. This feeling of love must be reciprocated. Otherwise friendship cannot be possible. Friendship does not exist where tastes, feelings and sentiments are not similar. Money is an enemy of friendship. Everybody has an attraction for money. When lending or borrowing of money is done between two friends, there is great risk. Friendship may be affected. So it is wise for true friends to avoid monetary transaction. Vanity is another element which breaks friendship. Everybody has self-respect. When a person tries to criticise his friend, their friendship is affected. So friendship must be treated very delicately.

Friendship Never End
Very often some hypocrites pretend to be friends. They are more dangerous than avowed enemies. By telling soft words they bring enormous ruin to us. A true friend never exploits. He rather surrenders. But at present, the meaning of friendship has changed. There are many fair-weathered friends. They terminate their friendly tie as soon as their interests are fulfilled. It is very difficult to find a true friend today. It is better to establish true friendship with either a dog or an elephant. Both these beasts will remain faithful to their human friends. Today, friendship between two persons is short-lived. Good friends exercise good influence. They always help their friends, in distress and inspire them to walk on the right path. But evil friends ruin us completely.

Muhammad Ali ever says; ‘Friendship... is not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything.’ Instead, it is important to our friends to believe that we are unreservedly frank with them, and important to friendship that we are not.

"Life without a friend is like death without a witness."
