10 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Entertainment March 4, 1988 On the Record By CHARLIE MARTIN NC News Service Columnist 7, What does i':--ean to be the friends? One Friend I always thought you were the best/I guess I eWays wtll/I always felt that we were blest/And I I that Way still/Sometimes we took the hard road/But we always saw it through/If I had only one friend left/I'd want it to be you. Sometimes the world was on our side/Sometimes it wasn't fair/Sometimes it gave a helping hand/Sometimes we didn't cai'e/'Cause when we were together/It made the dream come true/If I had only one friend left/I'd want it to be you. Someone who understands me/And knows me inside out/Helps keep me together/And believes without a doubt/That I could move a moun. rain/Someone to tell it to/If I had only one friend left/I'd want it to be you. Written and sung by Dan Seals Copyright (c) 1984, Pink Pig Music (BMI) What does it mean to be the best of friends? Dan Seals' new release, "One Friend," offers i i some answers. The song describes such relation- ships in these words: "If I had only one friend left, I'd want it to be you." While we do not need to narrow our friend- ships down to one best friend, the words express how we can feel when friendship is deep and true. The enduring closeness of friendship is one meaning of love. Often people think of romance as the most exciting form of love. Yet true friendship brings us more lasting emotional gifts. Falling in love can be a terrific experience, but couples who also grow to be best friends are more likely to share love forever. Such friendships are built on mutual trust. Best friends feel free to discuss whatever they need to say. When conflicts occur, as they do even in the finest of relationships, best friends share their feelings and work through the problem. This trust takes away fear and allows people to be themselves. Best friends show a strong belief in each other. As the song says, a best friend is someone "who believes without a doubt that I could move a ii i i i i mountain." A friend's confidence helps us manage difficult times more successfully. Occasionally, all of us question our ability to face the challenges in our lives. In a true friend- ship, we can share our fears and apprehensions and know that we won't be ridiculed for our feel- ings. A friend's support helps us look at our fears and decide what we need to do to overcome a pro- blem. However, when we do fail or make mistakes best friends continue to see the good in us. They stand by us through sorrow and disappointment while helping us discover new ways to find ' satisfaction in life. Such friends are among life's truest treasures. To use the song's words, sharing in this kind of friendship makes us truly "blest." Your comments are always welcome. Please address them to Char]ie Martin, I218 S.
