A True Brother

In its most difficult times, Life becomes too much to bear even for the strongest person in the world. The struggles of being human are challenges not most of us can handle alone. Adulthood and other significant life transitions can have a profound impact on a person. Life will change and nothing will be what it used to be anymore. Fortunately, the adage “No man is an island” comes to mind. In these times, a true brother stands right in front of us, cheering us on and rooting for our success.

It is common for people to fare this great journey of life in pairs or groups. Some have their family, some their friends. 

Compadre is a noun used for addressing a dear friend, a close one. This Mexican word is greatly used for its intimate meaning which expresses a deep bond between two or more people. A symbol of trust and a symbol of assurance.

There are a lot of dishonest and power-hungry people in this world, and they’ll do whatever it takes to get what they want. To put it mildly, these are some of the most dangerous and difficult to-pin-down individuals. They befriend you and make you feel special. And when the time comes, they destroy or steal everything from you, even those who are most dear to you.

“The saddest thing about betrayal is that it never comes from your enemies, it comes from those you trust the most.” -unknown

A true brother, a compadre, will never do such a thing. Just as Cuauhtémoc is with his four brothers, loyal and compassionate as ever, having such a brother is never far from your reach. A true brother will never betray you and will always stand true to his word. You deserve all things good in this life. You need to know that great things are waiting for your acceptance. Learn to open your heart to those around you and you will know who your brothers are.
