Perks and cons of Friendship

Sometimes, in life, there are really bonds formed that can never be broken.You find that one person who will stand by you no matter what. You may find it in a spouse or parent but there is also the chance that the one person you can count on for a lifetime, one person who knows you sometimes better than yourself, is the same person who's been standing beside you all along.
In school or college, you say you are friends forever. But do you really mean that ? Will you always there for the other person whenever he or she is in need of help ? 
If you find a person who will always stand by you, who will have no judgement in their eyes when they look at you, who will correct you when you are wrong, who knows you better than yourself then you can call that person a friend. A friend is someone who you trust your life with. You can't just call someone a friend over a day's acquaintance. Because trust cannot be handed over, It has to be earned. You should not make a friend of a person who walks behind you. You may not lead. You should not make a friend of a person who walks a head of you. You may not follow. Make a friend of a person who will walk beside you.
Having a false friend, is dangerous but not fatally so. When you lose them it doesn't hurt as much. They stab you in the back. You don't know when it's coming. Maybe that's why it becomes easy. An insincere and evil friend is more feared than a wild beast. A wild beast may wound your body, but and evil friend will wound your mind. But having a true friend can also be harmful. When you lose them, it hurts the most. The wound takes more time to heal. They stab you in the front. Leave you alone in the universe. But not intentionally.
Abraham Lincoln once said, " Am I not destroying my enemies by making friends of them ? " So true are his words. Helen Keller said, " It is better to walk with a friend in the dark, than to walk alone in the light. " Friendship is valued. It cannot be bought. It has to be earned.
