TRUE FRIEND - The Real Friend Defined!

TRUE FRIEND - The Real Friend Defined!

FRIENDSHIP DEFINITION: Friendship is a relationship of mutual affection between people. It is a stronger form of interpersonal bond than an association.

To me, the dictionary definition you just read does not truly describe a friend is my definition of what a genuine friend really is...

A friend is someone that has your back even in those times you are in the wrong... no, I don't mean someone who will give you a pass and not try to set you straight when you are going down the wrong path, but someone that will try to help you while understanding your weaknesses and will still, and always, love you anyway.

I wrote this poem for this post about what a true friend is just for you, my friends, because I know there have been days in your life where you have felt this way as well and then someone that loves you has been there especially for you...

In my hardest days of pain, I gaze outside my windowpane

Through darkness and the rain I see, someone who's been a friend to me.

As they enter near my space, they see the sorrow on my face,

They run to me with warm embrace, to help me through life's daunting pace

Why, I ask, do you care for me, they answer now most subtly

You cared for me when I was down, how can I leave you with a frown

You are a friend I shall not fail, nor leave you here alone and pale

I love you with my deepest heart, you are a friend I will never part

~Laurie Hunter

Another true friend poem just for you...

"Since it has been my lot to find, at every parting of the road,

the helping hand of comrade kind to help me with my heavy load,

And thou I have no gold to give and love alone must make amends,

I pray the Lord, that while I live -- God, make me worthy of my friends"


A True Friends motto is always ..."I'll Be There For You!" ...Listen...

John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.

I hope you will be my friend and I might be worthy to be yours ...I LOVE YOU!

    A great mytake. The only thing I would add is a ture friend would be non judgmental. I've only got one friend in the world but we both have each other's back and we never judge each other biased on our actions that's why 9 years down the line and we are still just as close as the day we met
    • Yes, so true, thank you for liking my post Ms Becky :)

    • BeckyN

      Not a problem Ms. Laurie 🙂

  • MrOracle
  • Agreed of your definition. Am proud to say that i have 4 people whom i consider dear friends where we both helped each other in most difficult times and most outrageous situations and that's why we call each other (friends). I would ad the Mrs and my brother too who already is family, so i have 6 of them :D.
    Great take
  • Lliam
    Beautiful poetry, Laurie.

    Here's a sweet song about friendship. (written by Carol King, who also recorded her own version)
  • Breanna_nonbinary
    Although I agree with many of these things, the one thing I would add is that they can be trusted to tell you to your face when you are wrong. Being a true friend mean you take that person’s opinion with true consideration and without offense.
    • Yes! ... great point Ms Breanna! ... thank you :)

    That is so beautiful. I feel the same way. I only hope that I keep my footing and never waver from who I am inside and those who I consider a friend can see me as a guy they can trust and rely on. Love you guys!!! 💓🌹😥

    Since I upped my entire life and moved to London I don't have that many friends. Thought I could make them with housemates but two of them are users. The types who are your friend when they need something but then just expect more and more when time moves on.

    That being said I have made one or two friends at work and while I'm no longer the happy go lucky person I once was, the few friends I have made they are great people who are supportive of me as I am to them.
  • 1stranger
    If I was with you right now I would hug you tight and a few kisses..

    And I love this song... I'll be there for yooouuuuu😄
    • I am so happy that you liked it... you have made my day! :)

  • oddwaffle
    Most people the you called "friends" aren't really friends. Half of them would leave for greener pastures eventually. The other half are just sitting around waiting for something better.

    However, every once in a while, there is a guy who will stick around no matter how bad it gets. That's what you can a friend.

    Sweet Miss. L.
    Well defined and excellent MyTake Lovely Miss. L.
    We all need that one /few true friends throughout our life time. We are so very lucky to have that true friend to talk to, to lean on and vs.
    I wish many here reach out to connect, to share, to give. Some of the smallest gestures/love bring us together to form the most endearing lifelong friendship. Which I have been very fortunate to have and give in real life as well.
    Friendship, indeed is how we help our friends and how they respond to us when we need the love and support, they are there. And us to them. They are so genuiently honest about how to make us become better people.
    As I see how my daughter go through meeting diff. people and form friendships, I am very proud of her for making the right choices.
    You have been giving your honest opinions on this site and share so much insight about the world with us. We are all very fortunate for your contributions.
    Love you Miss. L. :)
    • Thank you! ... I am so happy that my post brightened your day.

    It's so far to find that Friend that makes you feel safe loved platonically Know you have someone who is always there with empathy and is a great active listener
  • MannMitAntworten
    The version of friendship you define is often expressed in the context of a “Brotherhood” an “affection/love” within a unit cohesion. Where essentially a member of this cohesion is saying they love them more than they love themselves. It is also the rarest form of genuine love/friendship I know of but have experienced and have extended.
  • Makeushiver
    My favorite quite, though not sure eho said it, perhaps English poet A. E. Houseman was asked once if he would betray his country or his friend if he had to choose and replied, "I only hope that I would have the courage to not betray a friend.

    I’ve had one two friends like that one died the other is still alive though.
  • 8lutty
    with me , true friendship is: dude1 respect dude2's choices no matter what it is, also dude1 doesn't change dude1's choices bc of dude2's choices, and vice versa, so basically it is a kind of drama, where even when they stay in different side, and they have to fight each other, they still do their best to beat other, and when one dude win, that dude will moan for the dead of other dude...
