I believe that Friends just kind of happen. Life without them would definitely be boring. There are few special friendships last a lifetime, some, unfortunately, take years to fade away while others end dramatically. It’s an interesting process in life, right? whether we like it or not, we have come to realize which friendship deserve nurture and which are a slog.
So what kinds of friends I came across until this moment? here’s my list.
The Parent figure – Just like our Parent, this person is refined when it comes to being truthful and honest. They can tell you directly anything under the sun, and therefore you can always rely on them to seek good advice.
Friends who are up for anything – This is a bunch of friends who are always willing to try anything out of their comfort zone. They are always available to be dragged on.
The funny one – A friend who does silly things, they have a talent for quick and witty jokes. The one will have you laughing until you are crying with laughter.
The emotional one – They are expressive and very open about their feelings. They are the ones who will cry first before you do.
The friend that’s always “on the way” – A friend who is always late and never apologize for it. The reason why you have to schedule the time earlier than the expected.
Friends who are loyal – The hardest one to find. A nonjudgmental friend who will accept you no matter what. They don’t care about your reputation or any mistakes, you have made. They know all of your deepest and darkest secrets, but still, love you all the same.
Brutally Friend – They are the ones who speak with their minds, not in a sarcastic way. They tend to be honest about what they feel and think of you.
The BFF – I believe that this is someone I choose to be my second family. They called it Friendships of the good which is based on respect, appreciation, honesty, acceptance, and love.
Friends who make the effort – A friend who would always make an effort and offer their time to meet, to talk and bond. They usually remind us that friendship should not be forgotten, but to be nurtured.
The strong one – Someone who is not good to argue and fight with, they will not leave you behind without getting any what they want. In good side, they are the one who will fight for you and go with you in a battle.
Sullen Friend – They are the ones who are grumpy, sulky, gloomy, sour, or moody. In short, they bring negativity.
I know everything – This is an arrogant attitude which is simply annoying. A friend who would think everything he/she thinks are right and will always insist on it. They are the ones who don’t accept other’s opinions because they think they are always right and they know everything, well except themselves.
The High Level – A friend who thinks he/she is greater than any friend he/she has. They hate to be criticized, they don’t want to hear someone saying anything bad about them. They condemn disapproval. They always wanted to be the center of the attention.
I don’t care – The cool ones I believed. They just follow the flows without complaining, they don’t care if you hated them then love them again. They don’t like dramas so they either ignore you or talk to you directly, then forget the issue.
The happy ones – The kind of friend we will love most I believed. They are the ones who change the gloomy side to positivity. They will drag you up and let you see the brighter side.
There are so many kinds of friends I have met, I think I forgot to include some on the list. Most of these friends I came across are still with me and a few of them left from my life, for good. It is really true that true friendship is hard to find, develop and keep.
As they say “a friend will tell you what you want to hear, but a good friend will always tell you what you need to hear”
So let’s say thank you to our friends who bring our life into happiness and bid a happy goodbye who lose their way with us.
