Hey everybody out there,

How are you all doing?

Welcome back yet again to another chapter of our “Free 30-day Vocabulary Acquisition Course” where you’ll learn something new every day about a subject with context and examples, and so will you today.

Friends are important in life, isn’t it?

Fortunately, I have friends who always stand by me whenever I need them the most.

Although we were not that close all the time, being together in tough times and supporting each other has strengthened our bond exponentially day in and out.

I remember my high school times when I got so ill that I could not even walk properly. The board exams were coming in just 10 days and there was so much information to study.

My friends knew that I was not able to study properly due to my health condition that was deteriorating, hence everybody decided to stay at my home and study together with me. Sooner we completed our syllabus anyhow and gave our best during the examination.

I was lucky to have good friends, but it’s not always the case.

There are friends who will be with you during the good times, but when you have to face the music, no one is beside you anymore.

Am I right?

I have seen many scenarios in my real life where people left during tough times and the person had to fight alone.

Well, in case you didn’t meet or saw any such people in your real life, I must say you are quite lucky then.

I just pray that no one gets such a fair-weather friend because it completely breaks the person and he is never able to trust anyone down the line.

Did you ever have any fair-weather friend in the past?
