Significant friendships are measured by the depth of the traces they leave, the shared feelings, and how friends are side by side in both bad and good times. They are those great relationships that are not measured in years, but in quality.
Significant friendships are relationships that make us feel warm right away. It doesn’t take all day to interpret them. Such a relationship does not need to be looked at twice, nor do they have bad intentions. Significant relationships are those that remain; they do not disappear. In such a relationship, friends do not judge, they do not seek excuses or cause grief. They say things the way they are, and just the right way. They support us and help us break down the walls that torment us.
There is nothing as great as exchanging a warm look with someone who really knows you
Yes, you know what we mean. There is nothing as great as the warmth we feel when we exchange our gaze with someone who understands us. Such a person has the power to make us feel at home, as if we were in our bed on a rainy afternoon.
We cannot face or correct the world with anyone. We do this with a friendship that consists of shared laughter. About the shared times that taste like freshly brewed coffee, the hours that disappear like magic from our watches. Such people have given us roots, they make us see what we sow. For the best feelings are feelings of belonging and staying still, for no reason.
Sincere love never ends, it is absolute
As life progresses, a large percentage of adults have learned that there are friendships that end, selfish relationships that do not allow growth. These are ongoing relationships that have no foundation, and are based on outdated, disappearing interests.
Anyone who has experienced something like this knows that significant friendships are counted with the fingers of one hand. We all know the feeling of dealing with a self-centered person who doesn’t invest in our relationship at all.
Therefore, all great loves are much more than just the sum of their parts. It is the confluence of learning, words spoken, and sincere and constructive trust. It is all this that makes a person grow.
For if we were to say that something would test a significant relationship, it would be this: you are a happier person because you have fewer fears because of a friend. He has left his mark on your heart.
Significant friendships need us, and we need them
We don’t need anyone in our lives to treat us just as if he or she didn’t need us. The feeling that we can trust another, and that we can help the person we love, is one of the best feelings. It is the foundation of significant friendships.
Transient relationships are built into our lives occasionally and cannot last. But someone who knows our ghosts, fears, and demons is one who will remain for the rest of his life. For the knowledge that someone is not afraid to be by our side in spite of everything means that he loves us, even if we are not always right. It anchors us, helps us understand that mistakes are a part of life, and that you shouldn’t get caught up in them.
That is why significant friendships hold us. They make us realize that life is not as dark as what our ghosts make us believe. They give us reasons to be better people. Our anxiety is cut in half when we share it with our friends.
