Now, Friendship is honestly so misunderstood. Some people thrive in the thought of having multitudes of friends, but what is a real friend, how do you know who you can call friend and who is just another name in your list of people you know and meet. I have to say it's hard to discern what a good friend is. To me, however I keep very few "Good Friends" in my list of many acquaintanceships, it's a personal thing as normally I move allot and have insane trust and relationship issues.
I really can honestly say I could count my number of real good friends on my hand, and leave it to that. But this brings up a new topic, what defines a friend. Well, it will always be different from person to person I have found, and for me it is simple. I use to say, "Someone I can trust my life with" but then I joined the marines, and realized somethings. I can trust my life to a complete idiot whom out-of-field I despise, simply because he is trained to do so. Today my definition, is simple. History.
Who can I say I have been through the most, made the most promises, cried the most tears, finished the most subway sandwiches, and shared the most girls with? Who can I say I have spent countless hours acting like a fool and enjoying X-Box live, who can I say I have spent timeless amounts of days creating some of the most ominous inside-jokes to grace this earth.
These are my friends, this is what I think. But, What about you? What do you all think defines a solid and true friendship? What separates a friend from someone else? Where is this line found? How grey is the middle ground? I truly want to know SF, Who is your REAL friends?
