There is a saying that goes “A friend in need is a friend in deed”. We may this is a written proverb but to some extent, it really means something to us in real life.
But if several people are asked randomly who a friend is to them, they will definitely have different answers. Some will say a friend is that whom they occasionally talk with even if they are getting nothing from them.
Others will say a friend is that who is there for them in times of problems by assisting them financially or even materially. Anyway this all depends on how an individual thinks of who a friend is to him or her.
But the truth is your success or failures determine who remains to be your friend or who crosses to other side to being your enemy.
In your success you will have many friends but the majority are just pretenders. These pretenders will always make sure to being around you to enjoy your company faking happiness for you but when things take a wrong twist and you become broke, they are the first lot to gossip about you.
This is the time that you realize who your true friends are and whether they were there genuinely or only for convenience.
Some friends contribute to our downfall in one way or the other like borrowing from you and blatantly refuse to pay back. They already know how to make you weak and will behind your back start mocking you and even laughing at you for failures that they are part of. Having such people around you can be the worst nightmare that you can have to deal with.
But then whether in successes or in failures, we need friends to be there for us in our good and bad times. If you chose to be happy with me as I count my successful blessings, then I expect you to be there with me when am suffering in sorrows.
