You all must have come through quote once in your life and you all must be aware of its meaning. But, have you ever felt the real meaning of this quote in real life? Well, many people have experienced it personally and I am one of those people. Some time back, I was very tense due to my financial situation at my home, and at that time it was really difficult for me to pay off my credit card bills which were due to be paid within a few days.
I am a salaried employee who works for 9 hours every day for a fixed amount of monthly wages and for me, it is very hard to pay off certain big amounts in one go. I can pay them off with monthly installments easily but clearing them with one-time payment is very difficult for me. I made a transaction online to purchase a mobile device with my credit card. I chose the option to make EMI’s of my payment but somehow it was not done and all the payment was done through my credit card at once.
I realized it after some days when I received a message from the bank that your amount is yet to be paid by you on this date and I rechecked it and called the customer care executive to confirm about my payment, he told me that your full amount needs to be paid by you within 55 days otherwise with every month you will be levied with penalties on your base amount. He told me that your credit card does not support EMI on this device and you have to pay the whole amount at one go to pay off your debt.
I got worried after listening to this and started looking for some sources from where I can get some cash to pay off my due bill before time. On my week off, I met with my friend and he asked me what is your problem? Why you look so tense these days? I narrated him the whole story and in the end, he said why you never asked me about this situation? I have that much amount of money with me and you can really use it to pay off your bill and you can pay me once you have that much of money in your bank account or you can pay me a split over months.
Suddenly after hearing this from my friend, I felt a little relaxed and the tension in my mind gradually comes to a normal state. This is the day in my life I actually understood the meaning of the famous quote “A friend in need is a friend indeed”, it is not mandatory that only if your friend can help your financially then only he is a good friend of yours but it depends on how they help you to tackle the situation. This point of time I need financial support and I received it from my friend maybe you need some emotional support and your friend will support you, in this case, to prove this quote correct.
