Friendship is like peeing on yourself: everyone can see it, but only you get the warm feeling that it brings.

friendship quote

What a lovely quote by “Robert Bloch” on warm feelings friendship brings in us isn’t it?



But I don’t think this quote holds good in today’s lonely world where everyone is using other’s for their own selfish means.

I am not saying that friendship isn’t good, indeed it is but only few people have the luck to find the true friend.

I also have friends who do pee on me but instead of getting the warm feeling, what i get in return is the feeling of loneliness and betrayal. Not always but majority of the time I do.

What do you think? Does this quote holds it’s perspective for you? Or you disagree with it?

If you are reading this do comment below and tell me about your thinking and story on friendship.

Hi! I’m Vinay, a twenty-something Blogger who is just trying to inspire people to live happier. As someone who's riding the roller coaster of life with his partner loneliness, my goal here is to show you that there's light at the end of any struggle and to be your bff...even if it is just virtually! (: So grab your cup of coffee, Gin! (or some wine!) and let's get chatting...


  1. I agree. People so often have an agenda when they seek “friendships”, it’s tempting to allow that to change who we are as people by being more closed off. I refuse to do that. I’ll be as open as ever because that’s just who I am, but I have zero expectation that it will be returned these days! So when it happens, I smile and wish them the best and move on with my life because it’s their loss, not mine.

    • Ahh!! that’s the valuable comment i was looking for.. completely agree with you.
      When i implemented “not expecting anything from others” in my life it changed me for good 🙂
      Thanks for the read. Have a wonderful evening in the heat Devin Lowe

  2. I agree with you as well. True friendship is hard to find and it is usually something that comes with time and effort from both side. This said, life is full of acquaintances that might become something more, but in the majority of cases just don’t. I personally have stopped since a long time to expect something from others. I am mostly busy building the life I want and if someone gets along to share a part of the way with me, good. If I am alone, good anyway. The landscape is usually fulfilling by itself. Wish you a great day! Nice blog!

    • Great to hear from you [email protected] That’s lovely that you are busy hustling for your dream rather than worrying about what others think. When you said “If I am alone, good anyway” 🙂 thumbs up for this, very few people or basically just introverts learns this truth of life..
      I have visited your blog, though it was for witches:) but i loved your writings.. Keep writing!!
      Thanks for your visit! Blessings! 🙂

    • Specially in our 20’s we are going to find out the harsh truth about friendship… which definitely gonna break us form inside out.. but i think that’s the part of the life.. It goes on..:)
      Thank you for stopping by and commenting!..
      Have a splendid day 🙂

      • With true friends you can just pick up on the conversation when it broke off due to circumstances. And sometimes you meet by accident someone you feel you have met before, and you need only few words to understand eachother.
        The best thing to do is …. help others or refer them to somebody you think can.
        Yes that gives a warm feeling when it works out right.
        I have a new slogan for that: “Connecting unique Diverse others MULTIPLIES Dharma”

        • I agreed with you sir, if it’s worked out we definitely gets the warm feeling & I loved the idea when you said “help others or refer them to somebody you think you can”. Only an wonderful and experienced person can give such an epic advice. And Thumbs up for the slogan 🙂 Loved it..
          Would you love to write an article on this slogan for my website.. this can be a new sensation..
          Happy to hear from you sir:)
          Have a splendid day…

  3. Exactly, I believe it doesn’t apply now because I also have engaged in friendships that I put in my best, and what I get in return is betrayal… but friendships are still necessary in the way that they appear. Thanks Vinar for this!
