Who is your friend?

22 May

I recall a fascinating conversation with ruchi sometime back. She asked – who is a true friend? Someone who is sad at your loss or happy for your success.

My instant reaction was the former. All our lives we have been trained to believe a friend in need is a friend indeed.

She offered a different perspective. A true friend is one who is happy for your success because the hardest thing for a human is to be happy at someone else’s success. And this means genuine well meaning happiness.

It makes sense to me now. 

But here is the deal with finding a true friend. It applies to your own self too.

Do me a favor.
Celebrate your success more than you mourn your failure.

I agree to you Ankur!! A true friend is one who knows you in and out, with whom you can share all bits and pieces of life..
