How is a friend

There are people who come to our lives, and are able to fill it out completely, put into the soul, into the skin and senses, until you become one with you. As they came? can you not explain it; one day his path crossed with yours, and a "Hello" kicked off a conversation, perhaps at that moment nothing important, you suddenly cross it in the corridors, or shared activity, and so they decide to share more time, as companions, perhaps because they have common interests, perhaps by that pursue the same objective. Suddenly, you surprised one day, wondering where will my partner be?, you miss his presence, his words, his company. There comes a different loop, no longer interests or common objectives, it is the pleasure of the gathering, sharing, spend hours with someone who you have, that in one way or another, it complements your life. There change the title that it defines us and we leave be teammates, to become friends.

And thus, little by little, the timeshare becomes in a school, where they learn about the other person, learn from their strengths and weaknesses, and to exalt the first and not judging by the past; they learn what they can and what not, learn of their hobbies, their hopes, their concerns and dreams. Sometimes you learn words, these long talks arriving at the precise moment in which our hearts, with what we have seen of the other person, feels free to rely then emptied the soul and we reveal our deepest secrets, with certainty, that we will be ever betrayed. Other times, we do not need words, because we begin to understand the silence, gestures, the looks; because your true friend, knows much more than you, what has been able to tell, because it knows the meaning of this hidden language.

And suddenly, that person made for you, unique, irreplaceable and indispensable, not because you can not live without it, if not because next to it your life is more fulfilling. And then you discover the meaning of commitment, bringing This new nexus for both. Commitment to always be honest, even if the truth can hurt. Commitment to fairness, give the friend victories that deserve, even if it means our own defeat. Commitment to support, that extended hand that never moves or retires. Commitment to be shield and sword capable of defending our friend, without waiting to this ask us. Commitment to be patient, understand that their lives and yours will not at the same pace, know to expect when so required, or hurry if so required. Commitment to be always respectful, of dreams, of beliefs, of individuals, of thoughts, without ever trying to impose on our friend.

When we understand this commitment, the Pact is sealed, and since then nothing, if it is sincere, nothing breaks. We are really friends.

I don't know if you pass them, but every one of my friends has a unique feature that makes it special.

I have friends wizards, making disappear my anxieties with just one word, when you embrace a place of peace building to your around, where feel, even sadness can reach you. That friend who somehow, no matter the distance that separate us, always sensed when these bad or sad, and calls you at the moment just that need a word of encouragement.

I have friends warriors, assuming my battles like yours, not to fight them for me, if not to be there, shoulder to shoulder, when the fight starts. They surrender is not an option, and never leave to do so.

I have friends wise, whose advice always, but always return me the lost light that allows me to follow the path.

I have friends who know how to listen to anyone else, but not of those who are recipients of what you say without telling you anything in return, not so, know hear you really, even between the lines, and they will always have an answer for you.

I have friends who take honesty as a flag, which will always tell you what they think and will always be honest, assuming the consequences of his honesty, they never hear false praise, but if great truths, good, hard and even painful at times, but always truths, without masks, without costumes.

I have amazing friends, perhaps not many in quantity, but in quality are special, some close, others are far away; some look at them head-on and I feel grateful, others made both less and send them whenever I can in an email, a call or a message, a "I miss you" coming from the soul.

With a "Hello" started the way, you also try and you'll be surprised what you can find.
