A friend is always a friend, right? Well no, not exactly. There are different levels of friendship which are never really obvious on the surface; it is only when you reach a crisis point in your life that you find out just who your true friends are. Of course we have our best friends who are often closer to us than family; they share all of our secrets and know us inside out. We all have �fair weather friends� who help us to celebrate and only arrive on our doorsteps when they need something from us, and then there are invisible friends who aren�t really there at all!

If you really believe that you have at least one true friend, who cares about you and will stand by you through the good times and the bad consider this: if you were to lose your job, your car and be on the verge of losing your home would they still be there for you? Would they pop round for a cuppa and a chat for no other reason than to see how you were doing? It is in tough times like these that you discover just who your true friends are, when you reach out for support during your darkest days and find that they are still there to support you.

A Decreasing Social Circle

You may believe that you have a wide circle of friends, but when the time comes that the partying and socialising has to come to an end and instead of sending out party invitations you are issuing requests for help and support, just see how many answer the call. By the end of the process you should consider yourself lucky if can count the friends that are left on one hand and truly blessed if you need both hands to count them.

    There won't be any Fake Friends when one has no expectation, and greed from anyone.


    All you need from Real Friends is those whom get you sober. (this is extremely rare to come by, unless is your wife/parents.) If there is/are someone with such aspects in the modern world, you should cherish that.

    True friends are few and far between. I prefer certain family members instead of fakes who could care less if you live or die. Want to lose a "friend"? Tell them you lost your job and home. Uh ummm ah cough cough "You know I would IF,.............". That's what I thought LOL

    I guess it is true to some extent but it is not a necessity for them to be true for you to call someone your true/real friends.
