Fortunately, my high spirit after my last article has remained intact (unlike what a few friends thought that it was impulsive and will soon wither off).After removing all negativities from life (deleting useless contacts from my mobile, removing not so good and back bitching friends from Orkut/Facebook, stopping to being negative and thinking I’m on the road to become a loser after all the hard work, etc ), I’ve once again begun to listen to my heart and my instincts like before as a result of which I feel I’ve just been reborn….a renaissance of life. My urge to winning, move ahead in life, chasing my goals is come back to its maximum… I feel such a stronger person now, optimistic, full of life still following my same old motto of living life to the fullest and enjoying every moment as it comes my way.

A thing I just can’t stop is a constant retrospection and introspection of my life, the fire that keeps me growing up as a person, teach new things and basically live every moment.. The people who have really brought out the best in me apart from my family, teachers have been my FRIENDS. I’ve been really blessed to have found a few real jewels, my true friends for life – in school, in junior college and now in my medical college……

I’m sure each of us meet a million people in our lifetime but how many of them fulfill our criteria of friendship ?Have you ever thought why friends come into our lives, some remain while a few walk away?….You might just find the answer in the next few lines to classify people we meet randomly……..

1)FRIENDS FOR A REASON– They comprise of the friends whom we meet for a short temporary phase of life ranging for a few minutes, hours, days or weeks. They are the people who fill the emptiness in life our lives by their presence. We feel their need and importance in our life, a need which we might have expressed and suddenly out of no where they enter our world like a GOD sent angel to assist us through our difficult time, guide us to the correct path and give us that extra support we need mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically. They are there by your side just for the reason you needed them to be.
Once they have made all the difference to our lives, becoming the reason of our smile,the friendship abruptly comes to an end. Without any wrongdoing on our part they DO or SAY something which hurt us, many a time they simply choose to walk away wanting us to bear the burden of life on our own or reasons they know best. What is important for us is that they came when we really needed them, they’ve done their work, fulfilled our desires and now the time has come to move on….

2) FRIENDS FOR A SEASON- They are the friends who are by our side in the ups and downs that life takes us through. They play the role of a teacher and a guide in the time when the others are busy to care and it is really up to us to grow as a person we want ourselves to be. They are there to teach us to share, learn and prepare for things in the unseen future. In their presence, we experience peace, happiness, calmness and feeling of security that SOMEONE IS THERE…Our world begins to revolve around these people and they give us an unbelievable amount of joy….

3) FRIENDS FOR A LIFETIME- These are the friends the relationship with whom give us the lessons for a lifetime. They help us to lay down our very strong emotional foundation. We love the person as much as they love us. Our only job is to put the lessons that we had learned from them all this while knowing them to use in all the other relationships and areas of life….making the fruits of friendship sweeter lasting till time ceases to exist.

What is in our hands is to decide which one is it for the people we randomly meet in our life, then we’ll realize what is to be done for that person. .I’ve decided for myself,you make your call……..
