Sometimes giving means you are the one who buys fuel in the car while your friend always provides the ride. Or the one whose clothes and shoes get worn or whose house is the regular venue for house parties and sleep overs.
Sometimes being a great friend may mean that you are the one parents blame for spoiling their son or daughter while not knowing it’s mutual between you guys, you both spoiling each other.
Am sure at one point we have all experienced our best friend’s parents or family telling us to stop being friends with their children because they feel you are a bad influence on them while not knowing your parents also think the same of their child.
We all have different experiences, but in the end if we look at those friends who have stuck with us through the years we will realize our stories have the same ending. Sometimes best friends started as rivals or on our opposite sides, then something happens then we click like tea and bread. Sometimes it takes just one incident or experience to bring us closer or tear us apart.
We all have people we have been friends with for a long time even from childhood. We have friends we met in high school or University that are still in our lives. We have friends who are like family who we have forgotten that they are just friends whom we share everything with and who will lie and literally kill for us or for our sake.
As Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth put it.
First you both go out your way
And the vibe is feeling strong
And what’s small turn to a friendship
A friendship turn to a bond
And that bond will never be broken
And the love will never get lost (and the love will never get lost)
And when brotherhood come first
Then the line will never be crossed
Established it on our own
When that line had to be drawn
And that line is what we reach
So remember me when I’m gone (remember me when I’m gone)
How could we not talk about family when family’s all that we got?
Everything I went through you were standing there by my side
And now you gon’ be with me for the last ride.
