Dedicated to all my friends

The following  are my friends’ comment and mine_

See Kay, I used to SHARE (Pls read the above writing). But not for the selfish reason to show off. I just share, hoping that my friends who have no time to go through the wide cyber space could easily find some good postings of my other special friends and interesting news related to us. But sometimes I overdo and irrated my friends. They could easily BLOCK me with a click or two only.
Kay ေက Yes..Sharing is good indeed. How lucky we are in sharing culture of FB knowing each other .. keep in contact with each other.. . Please do share more. So do I. 🙂
Myo Min I do not know what FB is about but I do know that it’s not for me to be mentioned certainly. nonetheless,the shared writing automatically applied to me as I do agree with it. I only doubt that whether had I ever have such a friend and vice versa.

But I THINK I am very lucky to have a lot of good friends. May be I just thought or hope, but I think I should not have doubts on my friend. But I understand that we cannot ask help from the friends all the time, so I ask only when I really… need and I almost always got what I want. And I am ready to help anyone in need. My friends rarely ask help and used to fulfill. So although not 100% we maintain as good friends. If we cannot help each other, we understand and automatically forgive each other. I hope that even U would help me if I need. (U have done by offering your son’s service in my wife’s book) U could just pretend not to see or notice my request in FB but U has volunteer the help. This is good enough for me to regard as one of the best friends I got. TQ KMM.

No one (I repeat NO ONE) could fulfill all the facts stated above.
  1.  Our parents, real brothers/sisters, our children, our best friends etc.
  2. Even God never fulfil all our prayers.
  3. No need to be sad about this.
  4. We also cannot fulfill all that others need.
  5. It is better to forgive and forget about others imperfectness and just love our friends by remembering their good deeds.
Don’t worry Ko MM, your wife, your son and others including me are not perfect but your friends.
Ah Tuu Yes. No one can be fulfill in above facts. But we must analyst our self how much fulfill on other persons to classify our self.

I’ve always been proud to be one of your friends, Sir!
  1. Sometimes we deal with friends, sometimes we deal with haters.
  2. We do not know who’s coming in the way.
  3. So to gain good friends, we have to be good friend ourselves first.
  4. Then be a good friend to our family.
  5. After that, we must make good friends outside in the world.
  6. Sayar… right.. No need to be boast of how many friends we get. It’s just the quality. Be nice, be completely kind with our sincere heart and loyalty to those fews..
  7. And then good friends will come.. no worry..
But always we have to remember to filter false friends.
If they don’t like me, ask them to show their disrespect, and get out, then problems solved. Thanks for the great post, Sayar!

AKG..I found that most of the comments here are other way round reflecting what you have said rightly “No one (I repeat NO ONE) could fulfill all the facts stated above. Our parents, real
brothers/sisters, our children, our best friends et……c. Even God never
fulfil all our prayers”.
There is no absolute perfection over this world, however we all should strive to hit the words in your post,as many as possible during the limited time frame( our life) before it expires.
Myo Min
 
Thank you Dr. KKG. I am very much delighted to be mentioned as one of your best friends. I am humble to accept the fact that you have such kindness and recognition upon our family. Yes, non is ever perfect. But friend in need is friend indeed.
Our family needed you from time to time and you are amazingly always there. I wonder whether you are made of flash or fact, the fact that being a doctor is always a doctor for patients almost 365 days a year. U are amazing doctor.
Thank you for reminding me of non existence of absolute friend.That’s why I mentioned about myself for a doubt-able real friend of anyone as I know more about me than anyone else. :-))

May you all kindly allow me to rewrite like this_

“Ask not what your friends can do for you but what you can do for your friends”,

based on the following popular saying,
“Are you a politician asking what your country can do for you or a zealous one asking what you can do for your country?

If you are the first, then you are a parasite;

if the second, then you are an oasis in a desert.” Khalil Gibran .

Actually, Khalil Gibran published the above saying in his 1925 work titled “The New Frontier“, Thirty-six years before President Kennedy’s 1961 Inaugural Address.

The best friend is not a rich friend nor a very famous successful friend but we all unknowingly grade our friends for their generosity, kind-heartedness, ready to extend his/her helping hands to the friends in need or poor or in danger etc …along our life span.
See, how the late veteran actor Pho Par Gyi acted in, “Phar_Talone_Gaung_Jar” to search for the true friendship.
The Crown Prince had a lot of friends when he was studying at the Royal University Town. When graduated he understood that most of the friends were superficial friends because of his wealth and (potential) power and decided to search a TRUE FRIEND by pretending to became poor and stupid. He shaved his head into four squares (shaved 2 areas and left 2 areas alternately) as a fool or a criminal, wore the old dirty torn clothes and carried a bag made with weaved toddy leaves. He was beaten and chased away by almost all his old friends and ‘best friends’ but at last he found A TRUE FRIEND who was ready to help a friend in need with a kind and generous heart.

So the key to good friendship is_

  1. not a hand reaching out to grasp from the friends
  2. but a hand outstretched and readying to give anything to a friend in need
  3. e.g. starting from a mere encouragement like, one of my best FB friends is doing, by clicking a “LIKE” button, show interest to the friends (not inquisitive, not backbiting) to anything depending on their needs and what we could afford or spare.
  4. Some may even ready to sacrifice for their loved ones, friends or for their beloved countries at the crucial times.
‎”THERE ARE MANY TYPES OF SHIPS.
THERE ARE WOODEN SHIPS ,
PLASTIC SHIPS, A
ND METAL SHIPS.
BUT THE BEST AND MOST IMPORTAINT TYPES OF SHIPS ARE FRIENDSHIPS.”
…- OLD IRISH QUOTE (ROBERT J. BADAR JR.)
And we all must understand that_”The only unsinkable ship is FRIENDSHIP.”
-Jeff Sczpanski
But if the friends betrayed or OUR ENEMIES or SPIES just befriend us (e.g. FB) to just spy on us…..What to do…. I cannot cut ties with my good fri…ends esp. FB friends because of those spies… Because I believe that most of our friends are good and even SPIES after understanding our good intensions may change sides.
I just hope and pray like this proverb…
“God defend me from my friends;
from my enemies I can defend myself.”
Ko Ko Gyi After all there is another proverb..
“It is better to be in chains with friends , than to be in a garden with strangers.”
-Persian Proverb -by Shawn
‎”Fate chooses your relations, you choose your friends.”
– Jacques Delille (1738 – 1813) French poet.
“A friend is a person with whom I may be sincere. Before him I may think aloud.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
“It is more shameful to distrust one’…s friends than to be deceived by them.”
– Duc de la Rochefoucauld (1613 – 1680) French writer.
“Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together”
– Woodrow Wilson
“Anybody can sympathise with the sufferings of a friend, but it requires a very fine nature to sympathise with a friend’s success.”
– Oscar Wilde
All from http://www.friendship.com.au/quotes/quohis.html
“A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.”
-Walter Winchell

“A friend is someone who is there for you when he’d rather be anywhere else.” – Len Wein – Sent by Paulo Louro

…”A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.” – Sent by Donna Roberts

‎”Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow.
Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead.
Walk beside me and be my friend.”
– Albert Camus (also attributed to Maimonidies). Sent by clovers

    And those who cherish only celebrity and fame need a reassessment of values.The end and aim of life is to be an organized, integrated,dedicated,useful,outgoing,loving,helpful individual worthy of the approval of God.
