Friendship is very important for people. It is so bad when you do not have friends. You feel lonely. There is nobody to help you when you are in trouble. There is nobody to listen to your problems. There is nobody to go walking with. There is nobody to go to the cinema or to the theatre or to the night club or to a restaurant with. And it is so great when there is such a person who can be with you in any situation. Of course, it is good to have real and devoted friends. But sometimes you think that some people are your friends, but it's not true. They only pretend to be your friends because they just use you in some way. They might use your connections with people, your skills, your kindness, your money and so on. That is why it is very difficult to find a real friend. People say that a friend in need is a friend indeed. I agree with this saying. You can never say if a person is your real friend or not. You can only check this through many years. A real friend will never betray. A real friend will be ready to help you any time and in any situation, no matter what you do and what situation it is. So, friendship is one of the most important things in one's life.
