F.R.I.E.N.D.S


Next to my family, I value my friends more than anything else.

It's amazing how friendship is kept through the years, despite the differences, the odds. That's when you know, it's indeed real.


hot choco: sweet

Shy, wallflower, silent, snub. That's how my friends describe me. A sheep who could in a snap turn into a bull.

They're right. I could be the nicest person on earth and depends on how you treat me, I could be the exact opposite. And my friends know that. And they know that I know that. I am not the kind who would go around people I don't like, pretending to be nice when in fact I am not.

And no matter how bad I could get sometimes, they accept me. Just like that. I just thought I am so lucky for having them as friends, maybe limited in number but are giving me unlimited love and support. They may not tolerate my behavior all the time but in the end, they're there for me, staying with me... unconditionally.

yup, quality over quantity pag dating sa friends. i have a few, and each iba-iba ang ugali, and most of them nga hindi magkakaclose, parang i'm the glue that binds, hahaha

lahat din may kanya-kanyang "purpose". may project collaborator, may devil's advocate, may corkboard. hahaha.

one thing though, meron kaming principles that goes above friendship, like honor code. no one among us can ask each other to lie, cheat or steal for him, unless may buhay na nakataya. hahaha.

thanks for sharing, miss ko tuloy friends ko.

its great to build friendships that could last a lifetime. I wrote a similar piece over the weekend when I was in one of my gloom moods.

Reyn said...

Kapag may problema ka, andyan lagi ang mga tunay na kaibigan. Kapag nakipag-break ka sa syota mo, andyan din sila. Lagi silang nakaalalay, lagi silang sumusuporta.


Hehe..la lang.. :)

aajao said...

RONeiluke, RN said...

i agree to what reyn said... kapag nakipagbreak ka, nandyan sila! hahaha! but that's not likely to happen now, is it?

i have my bestfriend, haley. we've been friends for almost a decade now... and somehow i felt like she's the one person i want to be constant in my life :)

peace out! :)

dazedblu* said...

Meron akong friends for 12 years. 16 kaming lahat ang dami ano? Isang grupo lang yun. Ang saya kasi dati bf/gf stage pa lang hanggang kasal, binyag present lahat. Sa ngayon mas komportable akong magsabi ng feelings at problema sa mga kaibigan ko.

Reyn said...

Ely, anu yung "chat support training" nyo? parang gusto ko din nun...hehe..

dazedblu* said...

enrico said...

ang friends lang din natin ang derecho magsasabi na may dumi tayo sa ilong, na mabaho na tayo. hehe. but seriously, our friends are there not to tell us what we want to hear but what we should hear, kahit masakit. basta ikakabuti natin :9
