A true friend is always around, not just when you want it or if you have something. A true friend will be there not only when he needs something, but also when you need something. Sometimes you need a friend along the way to have a pathetic or encouraging, supportive, comforting word when you really need it. A friend cannot be just a human being. We often also consider animals as friends, they can be a very good friend while staying, and they can always be trusted. The only way to get a friend is to be a friend.
