“Two things you will never have to chase: True friends & true love” (Mandy Hale)

Friendship is the relationship that we chose, but it is not an accidental relation. The friendship is a relationship that doesn’t need to pay back, don’t ask questions if the friends your support. The friend is an ear who can listen to your sorrows, or a shoulder for you to cry on, or the person who can understand your difficulties and questions. Find a person who is always ready to fight with the whole world for you.

No requirement for friendship

A sweet friendship refreshes the soul. (Proverbs 27:9)

There is no requirement of age, sex, color, caste, or creed to make a new friend. You can make a friend or be a friend, whenever your mind accepts someone who accepts you when you spend more time together and talk about your matters with each other. Your trust each other and help without questions, and you encourage each other to make the right decisions of life.

Past 30 Years

Today I looked around the past 30 years, from the high school age to today’s professional time, I found the number of my friends from school and college-age is more than this professional age. After the completion of university-level education and joined professional life one few names, I counted on my friends’ list.

School Age

I tried to remember the days of my student life, it makes me happier because there was a very small reason for happiness and a small reason for worries. It was the time of the 90s, during this decade I passed high school, college, and university level education. That time there were no phones, no mobile, no Dish TV, no electricity, and only one thing was available that was time for everyone.

My mind is sketching of those days, there were 97 students in my class IXth and Xth. Still I remember the names of most of them. I have come to know that a few of my class fellows and best friends are no more with us.

Difference of friendship on different life stages

It’s the friends you can call up at 4 a.m. that matter. (Marlene Dietrich)

I always discussed with myself, that how my high school, college, university, and this professional lifetime friend are different, thought the quality and quantity both are different. Still I can fight with school life friends about can do this with this time friend. I found that we count the benefits of time but not the number of friends during professional life.

Five University friends (May 8, 2020)

Department of Botany University of Sindh Jamshoro

When I share the post with friends, my university friends said how you excluded us and how you differentiated in friends. We are friends and just friends. I have shared the information in the WhatsApp group they shared some photos.
I am sorry the quality of photos is not good, because that time was not digital, the photos had been clicked with 36 click role camera (Yoshika).

Five friends in the Park of Botany Department University of Sindh

It was the time of 1996-97 to 1999-2000. I remember we had celebrated the new year and new century too. I have photos of all my dears and near classmates, friends, and caring ones but due to some social norms, I don’t like to share the photos of my female class fellows. Now they all are mothers and their kids are the students of college and university.
I want to discuss the “days of campus and nights of the hostel” but it may create some difficulties in the relationships of my caring and loving friends of university age.

A few days ago, a classmate girl called me and said do you know me, I told no madam my phone is not showing your photo. She said I am your classmate “Sumera”; I told no there was no any my classmate by this name, finally, she told her real name. I asked where from you got my cell number, she said, many times I searched your name on Facebook, finally today I reached your profile and got your cell number. That time there were no mobile network and internet network.

  1. wow, friendship to me is invaluable to me and i cherish is above everything! Most of my friends I have been friends with for 20 years +

  2. My school friends are still very close to me. I feel we share a special bond as we’ve known each other since childhood and i cherish our relationship.

  3. I love that I still have friends from my early years. I spent over two hours on the phone with a friend from the 1970’s a couple of weeks ago. We both learned things that we didn’t know about back then. And we laughed about a lot of memories. It was such a sweet time.

  4. Yes, you can never chase friendship and love.. I still have about 4 friends from high school who are very close to me, and this is over 20 years ago. I value friendship!

  5. I have had a lot of strong bonds. But my friendships have come and gone. I still have a select few who chose to stay. And there are also some friendships that I’ve rekindled lately. I guess all the matters is, the type of friend that are while you were together. So that when you grow apart, you can look back and say that the person was a good friend even if they turn to stranger in the present.

  6. I have had a lot of strong bonds. But my friendships have come and gone. I still have a select few who chose to stay. And there are also some friendships that I’ve rekindled lately. I guess all that matters is, the type of friend that you are while you were together. So that when you grow apart, you can look back and still say that the person was a good friend even if they turn into stranger in the present.

  7. This is such a great read. We find ourselves in so many situations with life: parenting, work, neighbors etc. So many friends come and go but those precious few are in our lives forever.

  8. I still keep in touch with my friends from elementary as well as high-school and college. Also from friends that I met at work. Thanks to social media. We’ll all be friends for life. 🙂

  9. I love this blog challenge. What a great way to reflect and be thankful for life, especially in the middle of a pandemic. Cheers to long friendships!

  10. I believe in that saying that people pass by your life for a reason, season, or a lifetime. It applies to friends. There are those who pass by for a reason only, then there are those who stay for an entire season such as college or high school and if you are lucky, then you have the ones for a lifetime.

  11. Enjoyed reading the post. It’s interesting how when we grow our friend circle decreases. However, that is a good thing as those are the true friends that stay.

  12. This was such a fun a read! So interesting to hear of others journey’s and life. Loved the photos as well. Sounds like you have some very special people apart of your life.

  13. I always choose friendship over love because friendship can never break your heart unlike love. so friendship for me is a like a precious stones that you need to keep.

  14. i am still keeping in touch with my high school friends. they turned to be my best friends. we’re together since 2005. 🙂 it’s really great to have solid friendship no matter the distance and time..

  15. Some of my closest friends are some I’ve known since I was in school! Even with so much distance between us, we still connect and are always there for each other.

  16. Now that I’m older, I find friendship fascinating! Some people stick with you from grammar school for the rest of your life, others do not make it past 3rd grade! And now that I’m older, I don’t have a lot of desire to go out and make new friends. I am happy with the ones I have.
