Totally random thought

Sorry if this clogs up people's lists, but I was reading an NCIS fic today and in it Tony has all his friends rally round when he's really in dire straights and the author has a character thinking that true friends are there when times are tough.

My random thought is that actually, true friends are the ones that are still there when the drama is over. You know - three weeks after the plaster comes off, or the house is moved into, or the car is fixed, your true friends are still ringing you up to check that you are ok and invite you out for a coffee...

Very true.... in a crisis, I do want to know I can call if I need help but mostly it's slogging through that gets it done. It's when the adrenaline wears off, all the things that got put off now need to be done and I need to just vent that I need the most help....

There's a nice fic there.... hmmm.....

Do you know, I had a premonition that you would say something like that! :-)! I smish you right back, Friend!

You're right. There have been times where I've needed my friends to give me space to deal with something, but I still knew that they were there if I needed them. And they were there after I worked through it, and are still there for me when I need to talk about it.

It's nice to know you can count on friends during a crisis, but it's even better to know that they're still there when the crisis is over, because sometimes that's when you need them the most.

That's exactly how I feel. Sometimes you feel that those friends are only in it for the drama! There's something rather fulfilling about 'being needed' after all, but I know who my real friends are and they are the ones that I would do absolutely anything for too.
