Friends are the family we get to choose for ourselves… They are different from us but also very much alike…. Our friends are the ones with whom we can talk, laugh and cry all at the same time without being judged… Real friends are the ones who you share your secrets with… who you talk to about anything without the slightest thought… With them – there’s no need flaunt yourself… you can be the real you with them. Friends are always there whenever you need a hand to hold or someone to wipe your tears away… They never disclose your secrets nor do they ever remind you of the things you want to forget. In fact, they are the ones who help you move on with life with their endless love and support… They are the ones you can always count on… They make you laugh when you feel sad and never leave you alone. There will be fights and arguments from time to time, but real friends don’t ever take them to heart. True friends realize that every fight or argument is a start of new understanding… Real friends are like shadows who never abandon us… they guide us, support us and never leave us to fend for ourselves when we need them the most. They are the ones who know us better than we know ourselves… Real friends are a treasure we should never let go of…….Neena Gupta.
