There are so many things that have been said about friendship. Friendship in Gujarati is Dosti or Mitrataa.
So many Bollywood songs have been written about this, one of the famous ones is the one from the movie called sholay…
“yeh dosti hum nahi chhodenge”
In that song the two friends say to each other that I will never forget your friendship even if I have to give up my life.
There are many friendships that are talked about in different scriptures for example friendship of Lord Krishna and his friend Sudama…
Of Lord Ram and Hanuman… This is friendship in the form of devotion and surrender. True friendship to me means that a friend has the ability to tell each other the truth regardless of being loved or rejected. They are there for each other no matter what to complain, to rejoice, to conquer, to win, to fail, to get back up, to cheer each other on. Another type of friendship is that of a higher nature where friends may not see each other physically however they connect on a higher realm.
Friendship is trust, faith, genuine unconditional love and willing to go out of your way to honor your relationship. Some friendships are strong because of understanding and mutual connections. A true friend is someone that is cheering you on and encouraging you although they are aware you are probably not going to make it but in that moment they make you feel like oh you got this. A true friend who truly truly believes in you when you don’t believe in yourself.
