MOST PEOPLE TEND TO CHANGE THEIR FRIENDs AS THEY CHANGE THEIR INTERESTs & HOBBIES
We have heard of countless such reassurances in our student life, especially during those touching farewell parties ! But what is it that instantly CONNECTs with a stranger ? Most people tend to choose their friends not necessarily because they like them the most, but because they share the same interests & hobbies. So, if they change those interests at a later stage, the bonding doesn't quite remain as strong & they even change friends. At a time when millions are members of social networking sites, we often form cliques & circles of friends with common interests & go from clique to clique as interests change. WHATs the most important factor while choosing friends ? WHO are the friends that ultimately remain in one's close circle ? For someone to become a friend, we must share something in common. Otherwise, how can two people have a healthy conversation ? At a later stage, perspective may differ. But if the emotional connect is there, one can always make the necessary adjustments. UNDERSTANDING, certainly, is one of the crucial factors. The best time to make friends is during your student days because once you start working, it is just not possible to devote as much time in getting to know people. Those are fun years & the bonds we form are totally unconditional ones. YES, we can always make new friends from different walks of life, depending upon our hobbies & interests. But at the end of the day only those friends with whom we share an emotional bond & to whom we can pour our heart out are the ones that we can trust throughout our life. & THAT TRUST IS DIFFICULT TO EXPLAIN. It is not built upon common hobbies or anything, but on a kind of COMFORT LEVEL we share with that person. WELL PUT. Here is to TRUST & UNDERSTANDING & an evergreen relationship !
