These days, we live a life with lots
of friends from school, work and of course, from Facebook. Friends can be the
friend of a friend and the chain goes on.
I was born in the Year of the
Pig. According to Chinese Zodiac Horoscope, I do not have too many friends but
the ones I do have are all bosom friends. In this aspect, the prediction does
seem to be quite true. I have had the good fortune of having a couple of good
friends who have salvaged me at those melancholy moments of deep depression.
They were there all ears! They didn’t do much. They didn’t have to. They might
have uttered a few words of re-assurance that I was not worthless and that
there would be light at the end of the tunnel. Their ears and shoulders were
the floats that saved me.
I also realize that friends do
not have to come from the same age group. In recent years, I have got a very
close friend and she could well be my daughter! She understands me and cares
for me. That’s what friends are for!
Words of wisdom: don’t take your
friends for granted. Friendship is mutual!
