"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything." - Muhammad Ali
If you want your friendship should be everlasting keep four things in your mind. First thing is to avoid interfering into the personal affairs of your friend. However, you can intervene at the request of your friend to resolve the issues. Second thing is to avoid mixing money with friendship as it ruins your friendship forever. Most of the cases it is the money that ruins strong relations. Hence, keep money matters far away from your friendship. Third thing is seeking sexual favors or loving the person your friend also loved costs your friendship adversely. When you are aware that your friend loves the person whom you also loved, it is better either to stay away or to sort out amicably to avoid problems in friendship. Fourthly, expecting too much from your friend is very bad. Friendship is a divine relation and it has to be respected and treated with sanctity. Hence, don’t expect anything from your friends. Above all, develop the attitude of gratitude as it ensures everlasting friendship.
Remember good friend is a gift from God and treat your friendship as thicker than your blood relation. I am sure if you follow these four pillars and know the meaning of friendship you will have good friends and enjoy your life happily and lead your life successfully.
