Friends for life
by: Sweetu

Friendship is considered to be one of the sweetest relationships on earth. Two friends must be devoted and loyal to each other. They must identify with each others views, aims, aspirations and pursuits.

There are certain secrets that can be shared only with friends. Each friend should be able to communicate his most intimate secrets to the other without fear of being exposed.

True friends always stay together irrespective of the distance between them. Remaining in constant touch and expressing and sharing the feelings enhance the depth of friendship.

On the contrary choosing a wrong friend can ruin a person?s life. Sometimes these friends misguide the other and tempt to follow bad habits. So friends are very important in my life.

A REAL FRIEND
by: Anonymous

Friends are important to you but at the end of the day a lot of them aren't your real friends. A real friend is someone who is always there for you, keeps a promise. A friend is someone you can depend on. If you feel like these people aren't your real friends find new ones.

My friends are everything
by: Anonymous

My friends are beyond vital to me. I've been at points in my life where I didn't have money, and been at a point (when I first moved to a new town) where I didn't have friends, and it's much, much harder to not have friends.

Your friends are essential for talking out problems and listening when you have a bad day. Even the simple act of sitting next to someone who knows you well can have an extremely soothing effect. Friends are the people who'll be there to get you through hard times and celebrate the good times with you.

A wonderful friendship!
by: lijajohn

In life I faced lots of difficulties. My parents were always busy, so I preferred my friends to share what ever problems that I was facing.

Really, friendship is great and sharing things can really make two friends very close. "A Friend in need is a friend indeed" is a best proverb for friend?s relationship. My friends have always been there whenever I have gone through many difficulties. Mostly suggestions are taken from the friends that I have rather than the parents.

I was sharing my personal matters with my friends because I felt very comfortable with them. Even my friends always try to guide me in every problem that I use to share with them. Sharing things with friends really relaxes my mind and also make me tension free.

Friends are so important
by: Sarah

One of the reasons that friends are so important is because sometimes you can't always go to family about your problems. When you need someone there to lift your spirit, friends are there for you.

I have had many times in my life where I have counted on my friends. I don't know what I would do without them. It is also nice to just have someone to hang with even when things are going good.

Friends are a staple for some especially those who live far away from their families. I am so glad that no matter what is going on in my life I can count on my friends.

We all need somebody to lean on
by: Cleo

I'm an introverted person. I don?t need a lot of social contact on a day to day basis to be happy. I don?t need tons of friends. But . . . I do need some.

Nobody should keep their thoughts and feelings locked up tight all the time. Friends are there to listen to what you have to say and can act as "think tanks" to bounce ideas off of when you have a problem.

When you?re upset, they?re the people that know you better than anyone else, so they can help you out the most. When you?re with your friends, you know that you?re not alone and helpless when things go wrong.

How important is my friend to me?
by: minijack

I strongly believe that friendship is one of the highest values in our lives. But by mentioning friendship I mean the real one - friendship which is based on mutual understanding and support.

In my life there is only one person which I can call a friend - the others are just pals.

Of course I like all of them and I try to be supportive or helpful when they need that. However I rather couldn't sacrifice a lot of my time or money for them. On the contrary I could do almost anything to save my friend and to help him to deal with troubles.

Why is that so? Because there is a special connection between us. We tell each other most of our thought, share ideas, ask and give advices, support in difficult times. And what is really interesting is that my friend is somehow similar to me - he is like my second mind - thanks to him I am able to look at everything from different perspective.

Maybe all magic of friendship comes from the fact that there are no blood connection between us but we are as close to each other as a family. Or even closer.

Friends are fun and honest
by: Anonymous

Friends are very important to me ? real friends that is. I have struggled through a lot, and I could say I made it out in one piece because of my friends.

Whenever I have problems regarding my family and would just want a non biased opinion, I run to them. They have managed to be honest with me and tell me things I don?t want to hear. They say it in such a way that I would be so stupid not to heed their advice. They are not judgmental and we often laugh a lot.

I know they are the ones who will see me through because they treat others and their family very well too. It is vital too, that in each one?s success ? we celebrate together to feel the joy and accomplishment of each other.

Friendship - The Valuable Relationship
by: anjana

Friendship is the only valuable relationship that we made our self in our life. We can't share everything with our parents or close relatives. But it is possible to share some things with our friend.

We may have a number of classmates, room mates and many other close relatives. But it will be very difficult to find a best friend among them.

The "sex" of the friend is not a matter of concern. But most of the people prefer a friend of opposite sex. But there are emotionally bounded, depth same sex friendship in tour society. A proper friend make us courageous,give us confidence and make us aware of our pitfalls and mistakes

Friends shape your attitude
by: Anonymous

I think relations with friends sometime pays off more than blood relations. In friendship there is less expectations and more learning and fun!

True friends are not going to judge you, but will love you for what you are.

An helping hand and support comes from friends more handy than family. I have been living on my own since I was 19 and I could not have made it without help of my friends. When I really needed help, true friends came forward not only to help, but also to support morally. And who do you turn too when you have to let loose and take break from life?

Self Definition - Friends Helps Define You
by: Anonymous

I really believe that friends help define you as a person. The people you hang out with, their personalities, what they do, helps define you.

As my mother always said, "Birds of a Feather Flock Together", meaning that people of the same type generally hang out.

Also, having friends is vital to success later on in life. If you pushed away the thought of having friends through out your years of schooling, you won't have the people skills necessary to make it in the real world and to get that job you were hoping for. Your are more likely to stumble over yourself in an interview and freeze up at the very thought of uncomfortable human interaction.

Friends Are A Necessity
by: Anonymous

Friends are extremely important to our well being. They bring a fresh perspective to our lives that our family and those that are close to us can't bring. They provide us with someone who is trusted to spend time with. They also provide support and encouragement when we are in difficult times.

It is very sad to be all alone.

We are also "not near as strong" when we are by ourselves. Our friendships are very important because they are free from many of the expectations that exist in romantic relationship. We don't have to perform or impress with our friends like we do in more romantic relationships.

A Friend indeed
by: chocol8quneen

Friends are the deserts that make life sweet! We all need someone whom we can confide all our secrets. People have relationships misconstrued, and sometimes fail to be the kind of friend they would want to have. Thus they fail to make meaningful connections, and therefore have negative experiences with friendships.

Without friends the world would be a dull and boring place.

We all need to connect on some level with other people or we risk losing basic skills necessary to survival of the race. Thus the argument pro cultivating and developing friendships is valid. We should all heed the advice to make our associations fruitful. Be a good friend, and you'll have good friends!

Friends varies from person to person
by: MaciMay

The importance of friends varies from person to person. Someone who is more introverted and private may not feel as though they "need" to have friends. On the other hand someone who is more dependent on other people and extroverted will feel that they have to have friends.

I personally prefer to have many acquaintances, but only one or two close friends. To me, friends are important to have for support during good times and bad.

When I am upset or facing a difficult situation, it is very important to me to have someone I can talk to who has my best interest in mind. If something good happens or I am very excited about something, the first thing I want to do is call my best friend and share the news.

The great thing about friends though, is that it is all reciprocal. They are there for me when I need them, and I do the same for them. It is a give and take relationship with great long term rewards. I believe that very close friends become like family to you.

by: sampath

Friends are the most wonderful and sweetest relationship in this world. we are totally five friends, we will be always all together. Whenever i had any problem they are the one who will come in front and make me feel better. It feels very good when we all are together. Am really very lucky to get such good friends, even they help me lot in my studies.

No other relationship in this world can compensate this friendship.

It's very important to have friends and share everything with them. I always pray to God that "please always keep my friends happy".

It's very very important to have friends imagine a man without a friend! Surely he or she will be like a tree without a root. I just love my friends and want to be with them always so please have friends and enjoy, rather than dying getting bored.

Friends Make Life Fun
by: Anonymous

Life would be very dull if you had no friends. They help make life interesting, fun and enjoyable. Just think about it! Your family is important, but you also need friends.

A friend can be someone to talk to when your family isn?t around anymore or when you have something to discuss that would worry your family but you still need to talk to someone about it.

Sometimes you can be more relaxed around a friend than your family, depending upon the circumstances. Also, if your family has all moved far away, you need a friend for companionship and to keep you interested in life and living.

Friends are Family, They are Essential
by: Anonymous

My senior year of high school I discovered I was popular. That probably sounds crazy, discovering that you are popular, but I never knew people saw me, let alone knew my name. I was suicidal, lonely, and all the while people were excited to talk with me.

None of these people knew anything about me. They didn't know what I liked, disliked, how many siblings I had, where I was going in life, the certainly didn't know how depressed I was. I had no real friends, no one to confide in. Even to my family I was a mystery, although they were all convinced, they knew me.

Friends are important because the real ones share everything and learn everything and are there to keep you from feeling alienated. I am very happy that I never ended my life. I have since meant two girls who I consider closer to me than any of the blood relatives I grew up with, and the support they provide me has helped me to truly like the person I have become.

Friends aren't important, they are essential, because even loners require understanding, and only a friend can provide that.

Friends are the cornerstones of our lives, whether you always realize this or not, is of course up to you and situational.

Who do you call when you car or truck breaks down or runs out of gas, unless you use AAA, I bet you call a friend. Unless your a hermit, we need to connect with people as humans to feel like we belong.

Although husbands / wives / boyfriends / girlfriends all are connections, it's nice to share some time with someone you don't always have to spend time with. Get out and shop, go fishing, or whatever you like to do, it's almost always more fun with good friends. :)

Best friends
by: Mandy

I would say that friends are very important. It's very difficult to get by in life without at least a few.

Look at how many things you need a friend to do. Want to play a game? you'll need a handful of friends to play with you. Need to get a job? You'll need some friends to be personal references.

Friends also enhance your life, too: life is always better when there's a good friend there to hang out with you. They cheer you up when you feel down, and they make you feel great when you're feeling good. I couldn't imagine a life without my friends.

A friend who sticks closer than a brother
by: Anonymous

Friends are undoubtedly important. Good friends are there when you need them most, there to support you, laugh with you, cry with you, or just hang out with you.

The Bible says that "two are better than one, for if one falls the other will help him up." And "as iron sharpens iron so does one man sharpen another."

The importance of friends cannot be overstated.

However, friends are humans after all, and as humans we all make mistakes. Everyone has certainly felt the pain of a friend who has deserted them at one time or another. So while friends are vital, we can't rest our faith on the presence of friends.

The Bible tells us that there is a "friend who sticks closer than a brother." This friend is found in Jesus Christ, the one who will never leave you nor forsake you. Jesus promises to give you his everlasting love if you accept him. Yes, friends are important, but the friend who sticks closer than a brother will never fail you.

Friends Rule
by: Anonymous

Friends are very important to me and to us as humans in general. We are social beings and have lasted throughout time because of each other. It puts your soul at ease once you realize that there are people out there that care about you and your existence and can totally relate to having the same needs, desires and fears.

If I didn?t have any friends my life would be worthless. It helps me get through my day to day activities and gives me a at ease feeling knowing there are people out there that we bond and have a friendship together.

Friends Are Crucial
by: amaMaan

Throughout high school, I began to realize how important friends truly were in my life. I had had plenty of them in grade school, but it wasn't until high school, and later college, that I really understood the true importance.

My friends became for me, what a family is for most people. I spent time with them, but I also learned so many things from them about life in general. From the group of friends that I had, I was able to see situations in new ways.

It was also in my group of friends that I met my girl friend. I felt a special bond with her, and I realize that it was important to be friends first and get to know one another. Overall, friends make up my entire life, and I treat them like family.
