In our life we have lot of friends, but consider only few of them as our intimate friend. We will get a lot of disappointment if our intimate friend don't satisfy our wish. We must avoid expecting a lot from our friend even though s/he is very close to us, because if we expected a lot and our friend don't have the ability to fulfill our expectation we will get disappointment as well as get huge pain. It is really hard to face this kind of situation and come out from the wounds, better to avoid expectations which lead us to face disappointments.
It is not hard to sacrifice some thing for our friends, but it is really hard to find a good friend who is ready to sacrifice for us. We must be very lucky to have this kind of sacrificing friends. But unfortunately, this kind of sacrificing friends are not available in this modern days. Most of our friends are selfish. Some persons may pretend that they are our real and true friend, but we will find their real face, while we are in critical position and need their help.
If our friend is a real person, surely s/he will come forward to help us in our needy positing even though they are busy with their works. A friend in need is a friend indeed is a great well known quote, but this kind of friends existence is very very low in this modern world.
Previously we heard some stories about sacrificing friends whoever sacrificed their life for their best friend. In Indian Epic Maha Bharat the character of Karna is consider as the best symbol for friendship. He stand against his brothers for his friends sake and fight against his own brothers. Finally he lost his life in the war. He sacrificed his life for his friend and got a good name in history for the symbol of friendship. But it is really impossible to find this kind of sacrificing friends in our time. If you have this kind of friend, surely you are a blessed person.
