As I see it…

How do you DEFINE a friend? That is difficult because it is different for everyone. This is a great blog topic because they could all be so much different.  There is no real definintion for a friend.  Well, that being said, I looked it up in the Webster’s dictionary, you can see the definition below my blog.

Is a friend the woman who works at the next desk at work from you?  Is a friend an occasional text on a lazy saturday?  How do YOU define a friend?  A friend has some similarities with you and has some willingness to learn more about you and your life.  Is interested in what you have to say about you but shares about their life as well.  A friend does things for you even when you don’t ask for them.  A friend remembers birthdays, anniversaries and other special events with a card or a phone call. As per my title, a friend is part way to stalker but a more welcome one, hopefully.  I only say that because it is someone who is always there or on the phone, calling you, but with a friend, you are also calling them.  This person is ready and willing to be your shoulder to cry on or your listening ear.  A friend also supports you in which ever life events you are working on or dreaming up for that matter.

Also, a friend is someone who stands up for the truth and for what is right and if those pants really don’t look good on you, a friend is the one to tell you!  A friend would not let you hurt yourself by letting you drive drunk or let you get involved with that loser (at least not without something to say about it!) A friend cries with you, laughs WITH you but sticks up for you when others laugh AT you. A friend may drive long distances for you or travel to see you from across the country. 

A friend is all of the above and more! (or less if THAT is your definition)

Webster’s Dictionary Definition of FRIEND:

a : one attached to another by affection or esteem b : acquaintance
a : one that is not hostile b : one that is of the same nation, party, or group
: one that favors or promotes something (as a charity)
: a favored companion
capitalized : a member of a Christian sect that stresses Inner Light, rejects sacraments and an ordained ministry, and opposes war —called also Quaker

  2. Laurie,
    Thanks so much for your kind words on my first post at my new blog. Part of me knows I am not alone in my feelings, but I still have a lot to learn about all of this coming out business. Thank you so much for reaching out and giving me support. It means so much to me. You were the first person ever to comment on my blog, so I will always remember you. Hopefully, I will keep it up for a long time and make lots of new connections.

    I really enjoyed your post about friends. It IS hard to define ‘friend’. But it’s funny how you can meet them in the oddest of places. Good luck to you in life and with your blog. I hope we will talk more in the future.
