7 Kinds of Friends that we should have in Our Life

We have different types of friends over the years, the stages of our lives. Think back to the very first friends you had, and the ones you had in your early school years.

1. Mother – A True Friend

A mother is the truest friend we have in our life

She is our first friend, the truest friend we have for as long as she lives. When trials come our way and we find ourselves in the midst of adversity, she is our anchor. When friends desert us, she still cleaves to us. When clouds of darkness surround us, with her wise counsel she dissipates them. A mother is surely her child’s friend for life!

2. Father – A Wise Mentor

kinds of friends

The bond between parents and children is the highest and most noble in the scheme of human existence. Fathers are natural teachers, coaches and trainers of their sons while they’re growing up, and the chance for the father to perform these roles is always there for the taking—the trick is not to miss them. The natural roles of fathers and sons to be the best of friends are a source of unity, love, and happiness between soul mates.

3. Siblings – A Polar Opposite

kinds of friends

Siblings play a unique role in one another’s lives that simulates the companionship of parents as well as the power and assistance of friends. They’re the only people who fight for every things and share them with us. Because siblings often grow up in the same household, they have a large amount of exposure to one another, but this relationship tends to be more egalitarian than with other family members. Furthermore, sibling relationships often reflect the overall condition of cohesiveness within a family. They’ll the friends in one’s life in any stage of the life.

4. Childhood Friends – The Day Dreamers

kinds of friends

Our school friends taught us to play and socialise, and even share ideas and dreams, and plan projects together. They were someone to lean on when we entered new experiences that made us timid and fearful. Or we identified with them and were glad to have them commiserate with us when we failed. In a way they were mirrors for us to see how others see us.

5. College Friends – The Risk Takers

kinds of friends

The Friends you make in college are friends you’ll have fo life, even if you don’t talk for years at a time. We all need an adventurous friend who nudges us out of the status quo—someone who introduces us to new ideas, philosophies, and activities that we might have otherwise not been exposed to or feared to explore on our own. These Risk Takers are mostly seen in our College lives.

6. A Work Pal – The Supporter

kinds of friends

Statistics show that the more isolated you are at work, the more depressed you get. That’s why it makes sense to get a work pal to chat with at the water cooler and to help you get through the week. You spend 50% of your waking hours at work, and so does your work pal. You’ll find it much easier to shoot the breeze and complain about work with someone who can relate to you than eating lunch alone every day.

Your work pal doesn’t have to be your best friend outside of work. They just need to be someone you click with on some level, and if you two hit it off exceptionally well, you can always start hanging out with them outside of the office.

7. Boyfriend (or) Girlfriend – The Life Coach

kinds of friends

In our busy lives, I hardly ever speak to one of my closest friend. But it doesn’t really matter. When we do connect, without fail, she reinvigorates me. Her small talks make me feel more hopeful about myself and my future. Through her example, she makes me more eager to achieve my goals or just keep tackling my everyday. Talking with her recharges my emotional battery until the next time we have a minute to pick up the phone.

Good Friends are HARD to find, HARDER to leave and IMPOSSIBLE to leave

Happy Friendship Day to all Friends 🙂
