A friendship is the “volunteer relationship” a person would build during his/her life stages. The person’s life stage changes the perspectives to the friendship over the time. Some keep the relation same throughout the life and some changes due to factors like class-ism, importance, ignorance, avoidance and requirements etc.
I believe common types of friendship may have been seen are ,
- School/college Friendship : This is the honest and long-lasting friendship because it is not based on any hidden expectations/agendas. On the other side this is the tough to maintain because of the new friendships come along the path of the life.No expectations,no jealousy,tolerance and no hidden agendas are the factors which leads this friendship to its genuineness. Most of the friends of school times are always excited about everybody’s wellness and help.Even though they get little time to meet each other due to location,time,profession and other constraints.e.g. School friends’ meet always discuss about old good memories and everybody’s progress or helping each other.
- Nature Friendship: Nature can be a great friend in terms of loving a garden,river,mountain,forest,ocean or animals. This friendship generally is without any expectations.MOST SACRED FRIENDSHIP.
- Professional/Business Friendship : When the person enters into the profession, he/she starts making friends of same or different interests in the profession.The person generally spends one-third time of his/her day at the work so this friendship can be more deep and honest. This relationship could last longer till the death or till the job ends.It is entirely depend on how the relationship is maintained both way.This friendship is considered most volatile friendship.
- Social Friendship: The social friendship may be developed in many ways like relation with our kid’s friend’s parents, our neighbours or club members etc. This friendships generally changes as the priorities and needs of the person changes in his life during various stages of his/her life. Some people may find the social friendships are hardest to maintain over the time as same interest as it has been started. This type of friendship generally stay live when the friends are on same locations where they can meet regularly as soon as the location changes the friendship is getting blurrier and sometimes to the end due to lack of any communication.
- Family Friendship: People related via family,blood and other close means are falling into this category.This type of friendship is built due to the family known each other from long time.In family relation friendship,it has been seen many brothers,sisters,mothers,fathers,cousins,aunts,uncles and in-laws etc are friends of each others. This friendships are closely knitted friendships which may have lots of expectations too thus when this friendship get damaged,it hurts the most.
- Life Friendship : In this type of friendship,Only two persons can be your friend-one is your partner or yourself (God). Most intense relationship where you can share anything and everything.
Even though people surrounded by lots of friends ,why many of them are not happy with their current state of friendship.
Here are the few reasons ,
- Expectations : Expecting something from people is common but minimum expectations keep your friendship without complain.
- Comparison : Comparing yourself with your friend is completely unjust to yourself as everyone is different in the fact of your priorities,needs,life journey and value system then why to compare? The difference make you more colorful than the dull uniformity.
- Jealousy : Being jealous is common human instincts however once you understand what is your life journey about and nothing you can compare then there will be no space for jealousy.
- Prejudice : A person who set an opinion based on the experience previously had from the person.It is unfair to yourself to keep going with the same thoughts. Be tolerant an accept the friend with new perspective. You may overcome from prejudice.
Friendship is the best relation in the world which can be maintained only by your dedication towards friendship,selflessness in the friendship,no calculations and less expectations.
In a simple words for any relationship “think about others before yourself they will do the same.”
