Once upon a time there were two friends. They were best friend. One day both of them had fight, and one of them hit another. He felt pain, but said nothing to his friend and wrote on the sand. “Today my best friend slapped me.”
They both continued walking and found an oasis. Both friend decided to swim in a wellspring and all of a sudden the one who was slapped, was going to sink, but his friend saved him.
Then they both sit together and the one who sink regained consciousness, he wrote on the stone. “Today my best friend saved my life.”
The friend who slapped and saved his friends life, question him.
When I had hurt you, you wrote on the sand and now you are writing on the stone. Why?
His friend answered:
When somebody hurt us, we must write it on the sand, so that the storm could erase it. However if somebody does something respectable or good for us, we should mark it on stone, so that the wind could not remove it.
So moral of the story is:
True friends are like family which you can select. A true friend is the one who brings out the best in somebody, so if you have at least one true friend in your life you should feel thankful for that. A true friend is the one who will always there for you.
