6 Types Of Friends We All Need In Our Lives
Love is beautiful, but friendship is better, any day. We all have a myriad of friends which we acquire over the years. Here are the 6 types of friends which we all have and arguably ‘need’ in our life:
The life coach friend
This is the friend who has their shit together and even if they don’t, they are amazingly pretentious about that fact and the world agrees. This friend rolls out solid advice like carbon dioxide which converts to oxygen for you. Whether it is out of experience, age or sheer brilliance, their opinions and suggestions are your back up and the ones you value the most.
The favourite drinking buddy
The USP of this friend is that you just need one call to fix up the session and they are there for you! They are the rare kinds in the sense that you have some of the most intense conversations with them and you need that one ‘reliable’ friend who can tank up shots, talk endlessly and hug you tight if the emotional side of you awakens by the end of the night. It is not about just drinking but the lovely chemistry that you share as a ‘team’. A tough day ends on a sunny note with them.
This friend is a secret inspiration for all of us, the dire motivation to make a choice in life and stand for it. This is the human with whom your friendship requires effort and understanding to nurture as they flout societal norms by the minute. Sometimes your family and friends fail to understand how the two of you are friends because there is a major difference of personalities between the two of you. This friend is the window to the other side of the world which challenges you to push your limits.
The patiently avid listener
This friend is like a vacuum bag who will listen the shit out of your irrational crap. They are like same age mommies who will see you whine and even throw in an advice or two until your heart is light as air after you have vented out. They are well equipped with the art of nodding and pasting a sympathetic smile, just what you need when you are screwed with sentiments.
The brainy bae
This human is responsible for the intellectual stimulation that everybody needs in their life. They are a decent version of the ‘know-it-all’ category and even if not, they definitely are more in sync with the ‘intelligent’ stuff than you will ever be.
The history archive BFF
This buddy is like a horcrux. They have seen you transform from school to the current new ‘you’, they know your family history and your bad break up to your history of flings to that one serious relationship chronicle by heart. They accept you and are the rock of your life. This is the type of that once in a lifetime things that survive every storm. They are your sense of belonging.
