How To Be A True Friend - by Gharwang Rinpoche

HOW TO BE A TRUE FRIEND

Families and friends play a very important role in our life and for mutual benefits we should enhance our friendship for each other. Before we accept anyone as our friends, we must at least know what friends stand for us. In my opinion, if I am not wrong, there are a few important factors that we need to embrace and to avoid.

We must avoid friends of convenience and not to step into the space of our friends. Moreover, try our level best to be honest to each other and at least not to take advantage of each other’s weaknesses at any time. In addition, we must not forget that we are ordinary human beings and we are not perfect. Therefore both parties need to travel extra miles to build strong relationship base on trust and respect. Furthermore, friends are not just to share happiness but more importantly, during the time when we are in great pain, otherwise, we may slip into depression. What I have written may sound too good to be true but I believed not entirely false. However, we must know our boundary or freedom of space for each other. In conclusion, trust is built on mutual respect, care and understanding and we need to enhance by making all the right effort and patience! Have a nice day!
