I never really doubted the theory about True friends-those who support you during difficult times. Paulo Coelho in his latest novel, The Zahir(which i’ve been trying to finish since the last 1½ weeks) begs to differ..He says:
"I learned somethimg recently: our true friends are those who are with us when the good things happen. They cheer us on and our pleased by our triumphs. False friends only appear at difficult times, with their sad, supportive faces, when, in fact, our suffering is serving to console them for their miserable lives."
Interesting stuff…if u come to think of it that way!
