People understand the concept of friendship differently, but there is one common ground for it – it is always built on a mutual sympathy. In some cases it is transient and finds its end eventually, while in other cases it may last for many years and grow stronger every year. True friendship is built on trust and mutual support. Your real friend will always find time to talk and try to find solutions to the hard situations you face every day. He is always there to help you and expects the same from you. Friends are psychologically comfortable with each other, and sometimes are emotionally closer than with their relatives.
You never know when you will meet a friend – you may have common interests, work or study in one field, or go through the hard situation, which will unite you. Women are scientifically proven to seek support and sympathy in their friendship (due to higher emotionality of all females), while men find friends with common interests and whom they may trust. Friendship between men and women can also happen, but there are numerous hot discussions whether these relationships can be considered a friendship at all. I guess, it is easier to make friends while you are young, or even in childhood, as there are no adult problems in life. But of course, this is only a single opinion – each friendship differs, depending on your personality and a number of other factors.
Friendship is a very hard concept to define, but there are always feelings that go with it: sympathy and empathy, compassion and mutual understanding, honesty and trust. It is much harder to live if you don’t have close friends. Unfortunately, in modern complicated life it is becoming harder and harder to find your true soul mate. But if you succeed to find one, you are really happy person.
