good mates that are there for you no matter what

Recommended Posts

The old chestnut is that good pals don’t judge you, I don’t actually agree with that.

I think your very closest pals do exactly that, they hold you up to a standard and you do the same for them......sometimes you fall out about it but you’d feel less of a man if you kept your mouth shut.

I have exactly 3 people who I consider my close pals.

One of them has stood shoulder to shoulder with me in some real hairy situations when bottle counted and the odds were bad.

It becomes a matter of pride and it’s a rare quality to find.

i have read this post and thought long and hard on the subject,ive one mate ,and he is a mate ,that has given me financial help when i was completely fooked ,a substantial ammount of money ,and ove a 2 year period i paid it back ,no stress from him at all,BUT  if it came to anything else ,the same mate wouldnt be one to stand beside ye and take a blow ,so in that respect ,yeah hes there if ye need help OTHER THAN  fisticuffs ,and since ive gone over my 50's now thats not an issue ,soooo..i have to say ive got 1 mate that will come and do whatever i ask of him once he knows its the only way ,other than him ...I stand alone lol but i got two good sons that are guaranteed to do what it takes if the family unit is threatened ,.......does that count?...i kinda stay to myself these days ,preferring my own company a lot ....in other words im an odd bolix

there can be times when your own company is good ,but like I say when my mate took ill he has no family around him so he had to depend on his mates,since he split up with his wife he has had nothing but bad luck ,im not going to say its all her fault but she done some dirty tricks leading up to the divorce including taking a lot of money out of accounts before he realised what she was up to,im glad hes shot of her because women like that will do it again,i just hope he has the strength to live a normal life and put it all behind him

Personally i dont think a mate standing by your side in a tear up proves anything whatsoever about friendship....some people just enjoy scrapping its no hardship !

Ive lost money,time and blood for friends and blood was by far the easiest 😂

One of my 3 close pals had a bad motorbike accident, the cozzers phoned me from the scene and told me to go to Whitechapel where they were air lifting him a bit lively because they thought he was going to die.

Anyway, he survived and after a long, long time in hospital he was allowed home.

They didn’t know if he would walk again and he was staying at his mum and dads, getting very melancholy and generally being a f***ing baby about it.......it came to some harsh words telling him to get a grip and be a man to snap him out of it, and it did.

I don’t think anybody except people who a very close to a person can do or say those things.
