What Are Friends?

Have you ever wondered why you talk to the people you do? Why certain people in your life will take precedence over others? Why do we have friends? And more importantly makes a friendship good? I'm sure you all have your, friends, good friends and possibly best friends. Who are these people and why do we care so much? Think about it. What makes your friends special?

What even makes someone a good friend? Is it someone who texts you at any hour to go out, or is it someone who texts you at any hour because they have a new theory about their favourite TV show? Is it someone who tells you to keep going when things get tough, or someone who tells you to admit your defeat, if it's making you miserable? Do they get mad that you hung out with someone else or, are they just happy you socialised? Will they stay up on the phone with you all night because, you're not feeling well or do they come visit you the next day? Do they look back on your arguments and laugh or have you never had one in the first place? Or do you simply hang out with them because, none of that matters and you just want people to be around?

Everything in our world, now a days, is so fake. Social media doesn't exactly help the situation. I don't know how many times people have made up this great looking life on Facebook, when I know they're miserable in real life. People complain everyday that reality TV is scripted and fake. But when you think about it, our lives are kind of the same. People follow this life script of, being born, going to school, college and then working until they're old enough to sit back and think about how shit their lives were. I've talked to someone I very much respect about this topic, and he said the only solace he could find was, in his friends and family.

This is all great and all but, look at out generation. We're all so two faced. Best friends and sharing personal stories one minute, and bitching and throwing shade at each other the next. Where do we find our solace? Honestly, I think it's better to have one real friend than 10 fake ones. Trust me, I've been there. I think we all need to take a step back sometimes and think about who is there for us, who actually gives a shit...it's hard to even find someone to ask you how you are and, mean it these days. Is your best friend really your best friend? Or is there someone else quietly rooting for you in the background? Who knows?

I guess there's only one way to find out..
