“A good friend is like a four-leaf clover: hard to find and lucky to have.”
– Irish proverb
We all have people around us we call friends, but who can we truly count on in times of need?
Most likely not on all of them.
It is natural for human beings to only have a handful of true friends in our life and those few real friends make up for all the hardships our fake friends often put us through. They stick with us through thick and thin, and they are the only ones who value us for who we truly are. Your best friends will never abandon you in times of need and will never badmouth you in front of others.
Many fake friends will just go along with whatever the majority of people say about you, but it is only your true friends who will defend you when you are unable to defend yourself. And they will do so till the very end, knowing that you would do the same for them.
Showing gratitude for the people who deeply care is crucially important as they show us a deep love and kindness we cannot get from anyone else. Most importantly, they would never try to change who we are. They know us inside out, and even though we are deeply flawed, they still choose to remain by our side.
If you believe your true friends haven’t received enough gratitude for sticking by your side and helping you navigate through the dark times in your life, now is the time to do so.
Sadly, oftentimes we forget to remind our loved ones how much value and meaning they truly bring to our lives. They celebrate our triumphs and comfort us when life brings us down. When we no longer ser our own worth, they are always there to help us push through and grow as human beings.
Don’t hesitate to reach out to them or do something nice for the people who’ve pulled you out of hardships and never hesitated to help you when you were in need.
They are rare, they are special, they understand you, they bring you happiness, joy, and comfort. Make sure to let them know how much their existence means to you, and assure them that they will always be able to count on you too.
