A friend in need is a friend indeed.
We have all heard or read the above saying a million times. But it never really hits us till it actually hits home. Till we are receiving the short end of the stick. Or worse, till we are the ones bailing out on a friend.
There is a reason why only certain people end up becoming our true friends. Not everyone can accept us as we are and yet manage to laugh and cry with us. As we grow, we realize how rare such people are to come by. Further, only fewer stay.
So, respect your friendship. Respect your friends. Never ever, ever bail out on a friend!
It is one of the most unforgivable mistakes. At times, it manifests itself out loud through a lot of drama. At other times, it is a silent killer. Either way, it destroys the friendship.
Life is tough as it is. Take care not to push away the few who care to make yours a little easier.
