I know many people who are my age or little younger or older than me. I always see possitive things in them, but what I have thought sometimes is not always right. How can I know one person deep inside? I have some many friends and when I have done something good for them I hope that they would be happy just like me. Thing also turns upside down, it doesn't come as what I want. The result of good deed is bad sometimes.

My teacher told me to choose a friend that she or he has something good that I don't have. Is it really true that I should always find a friend like that? I couldn't think of something better than asking all of you here because I think that you all have something good that I don't have. Espescially, what is the best way to deal with friends? I love to stay with friends, but I have a hard time to understand their thinkings! Please help me to find out.

Thanks a head of time for sharing!

Friendships

Hi Kimsru,

Indeed, it is sometimes difficult to know the true heart of someone. I have experienced failures in friendships in the past, when the relationship was not based on mutual respect and trust. However, these failed friendships are few compared to the deep and meaningful friendships that I have experienced in my life. I have relied on these friends to pull me through the darkest hours and also to help celebrate my greatest achievements, bust mostly to share beautiful experiences with and laugh and laugh or cry on their shoulders when I need to. And of course I try my best to offer the same support to them. I think it's worth the risk to have an open heart and trust in the good in people. Sometimes it doesn't work out and you get hurt, but the sweet rewards of having beautiful friendships are too good to miss out on!
