A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand, but touches your heart.

by Deepa

A true friend is a person who is always there for you in times of need, a person who stands up for you anywhere, who trusts you unconditionally. Friendship encompasses Trust, Honesty, Understanding, Sympathy, Empathy, Compassion, Reciprocity and many more things that cannot be just put into words.

I had encountered a situation when there was no one to help me and one of my friends came to my rescue. It was during my college days that my mother had undergone a very critical surgery and she was just out of the hospital recovering from it. So I was still very panicky should some complication arise.

It was one of those days, when I called my home and no one would pick up the phone. Unfortunately there was no other phone in our home at that time. I was trying for more than an hour and still no answer. I started to panic; I could not think straight, I was trying to figure out other means of contacting them. Unfortunately, I did not have any of my neighbors? phone number.

Just then I remembered that one of my friends is from the same town as I am from. Initially I was hesitant to seek her help to her because I was not very close to her, but I dint have a choice. So I told her the situation , she called up her parents and asked them to go to my house and check out if everything was fine. They did not hesitate, even for a second and they immediately went to my house and called me. Apparently the phone was dead for few hours at my house, and everything else was fine.

I was relieved to hear that everything was fine. Thankfully none of my fears were true. This friend was just a little more than an acquaintance, but she helped me in the moment of dire need.

That help really meant a lot to me. This is the reason why we need friends around us. Because they are the only persons whom we can turn to, in any critical situation be it small or big.
