Not only is a friendship a commitment, but it is also takes great devotion.A friend is a person who I can go to in any time of need. A good friend is not someone who requires you to be something that you are not or do something that is not to your ability; but rather a good friend is someone who accepts you for who you are and will love you just the same when you act foolishly. A good friend is someone who is caring, patient, kind, and accepting. When my father passed away about 2 years ago, that was a time when I really needed close

summer we were never separated, and thanks to the glory of God doing this never ruined our friendship and only strengthened it. Just after I turned six, my dad got married to Kristi. At that wedding is actually where I’d say we did most of our growing as friends. We were told to leave and go outside and play in the back, which we were ecstatic about. We played tag, and played on a nearby playground. We were having a great time like we had grown accustomed to by that point, until Garrett got stung by a bee. Garrett was always a tough kid, he never cried while I was around, so it was a shock to me when he cried after being stung. He ran back inside and got Kristi to take care of him. It was at

How does society bring about friends?
Society plays a huge role in who people make friends with. The Society around is made up of people who spend each and every day together and are very familiar with each other. A community is a great example of a society which influences the acquaintances made by people and the company that they keep.

“About a boy” is a story about twelve year old Marcus and 36-year old Will and how they develop their friendship. Fiona, Marcus’ mother, tries to not be like everyone else and tells Marcus to be himself, which in his situation means to be like her, and is therefore making troubles for him with fitting in at his new school. Will on the other hand is the complete different from Marcus. He is a grown-up man but thinks like a teenager.

The bullying of Marcus leads to his low self-esteem and because of this he

There is a freedom from both people to express their opinions to each other in order to strengthen the friendship. It does not matter whether the marriage or friendship is by choice or by force. Any form of friendship is based on the simple rules of honesty and trust. These are understood even before it starts. It is this that makes us human.
They do not want to know about it or they do not understand it enough. This is not how friendship works. It is a system like any other, and whether it is between spouses or parents and children or friends, the same rules will apply. These rules can be summarized by one word – trustworthiness. If you take your friends for granted then the same happens

Friendship Life is more rewarding with friendship. We need friend in our life, a friend to share all the joy or the sadness. Everyday we have a change to meet someone new. It doesn't matter if we are at school, at work or even at bus stop, people are everywhere and we have a choice, if we want to get along or not. In my experience, I found there are categories of friendship such as convenience friends, historical friends, and close friends. The first category is convenience friends. There are people around us like neighbor, classmate or work friend. These are people with whom we exchange small favors. For examples my neighbor will give me a ride when I need a lift to go to school, my

When I think of friendship, I also think of companionship, and compassionate beings. I think of people who will always be there when you need them, and will care about you, and listen to you making sure to consider your feelings first . I think the characteristics of a good friend inclue, a wonderful listener, a very caring, loving, sweet person, as well as someone who will stick by you through even the roughest of times. Now in order to be a good friend, you must posess all these same traits. You must be willing to drop what you're doing when your friend is in a time of need, and advice.

Friendship is having a friend that knows you from the inside out, all your dream, hope and fears, everything about you.It is the relationship of trust, faith and concern for the others feelings. In other words ”Friendship - Is built on two things, respect and trust, both elements have to be mutual.

participants being old men. Rather than claiming that only a select few are capable of true friendships, one should rather hold that most people are capable of this kind of friendship. It does not mean that everybody will experience it in their lifetime. Since friendship is a matter of meeting the right person, and being interested enough to develop the relationship into a friendship, many might be blind to potential friendships. True friends must also have the same type of values. We cannot imagine being friends with someone who does not share our values.

They spent hours nibbling on clover and wiggling their whiskers. Most of all, they loved playing with Harriet’s Wii. One tragic day, the Wii broke. The next day, Harriet waited and waited for Alice to come over to play. Alice did not come that day, nor the next. Alice never came over to play again.

essential in order to be self-sufficient which means that all of the needs of a friendship are met. According to Aristotle "Even the person who has everything still needs friends." Friendships can be good for a lot of things. If you’re needing help with a current situation or issue, a friend is there to help you and be there for guidance.
There are three types of friendship: friendship based on utility, friendship based on pleasure and friendship based on goodness (pleasure). A friend of utility is love on what they can benefit from one another. Not about love based on a person’s character. An example of this would be a study partner.

individuals admire each other’s goodness and desire goodness for one another. One might ask, where does internal friendship fit into this threefold system? This can be figured out through a process of elimination. First, one must divide this person into two entities: the person and themselves. Immediately, we can eradicate the friendship of utility, for the person cannot receive material goods from themselves, they simply “have” things. We can also remove the friendship of pleasure since these things change about people. For instance, people can gain or lose weight or increase or decrease their intelligence. Finally, we can attribute internal friendship to that of the good. This is valid because the

Aristotle on Friendship
We are social creatures. We surround ourselves with other human beings, our friends. It is in our nature. We are constantly trying to broaden the circumference of our circle of friends. Aristotle understood the importance of friendship, books VIII and IX of the Nicomachean Ethics deal solely with this topic. A modern day definition of a friend can be defined as “one joined to another in intimacy and mutual benevolence independently of sexual or family love”. (Oxford English Dictionary). Aristotle’s view on friendship is much broader than this. His arguments are certainly not flawless. In this essay I will outline what Aristotle said about friendship

What is a true friendship?
Wikipedia gives us the definition that friendship is a relationship of mutual affection between two or more people. But is that all a friendship really is about? In my opinion everybody has their own definition of a true friendship.
One of the basic human needs is communication. Communicating with somebody who you can trust, who always understands and supports you, a person on whom you can rely on in any situation. This is the exact definition of a good friend – a sincere, faithful and honest person. In our big world it is hard to find such a person. But it is even more difficult to keep him next to you because of some small things and not to betray the

Friendship should grow as a fragile and delicate flower "watered" by thoughts about each other and "fertilized" by worthy actions. In friendship interests of your friend should weigh no less than your own interests. The principles of equality and mutual respect are the ones that put people on a higher level and help keep the heart feeling unconditional love to each other.
Of course, friendship is a concept bilateral. Therefore, we need to be cautious of potential friends, but finding a close one, it is worth the effort to avoid losing him. There is only one way to have a true friend: you must be a loyal friend yourself. Two people equally should cherish their relationship, protect it, and try to save it. Only in that case friendship will be really strong and long-lasting.

Throughout epics there always seems to be someone alongside the hero helping and keeping him on the path of his journey. This relationship can be seen as a friendship or can even go so far as to call it a brotherhood. The companion of the hero not only stands as character foil but also a guide emotionally and physically. Even through death the lesson taught by the companion still persist, and guide the hero to a greater understanding self, and the world. The Epic of Gilgamesh and The Iliad, by Homer, both exemplify some of the lessons a companion teaches the hero. Both epics portray a hero’s need for a motivational friend or ally to help stand against overwhelming odds, and complete their

When Smalls first waves at Benny, he receives only a nod back because he is the new kid in the neighborhood. According to Mandal and Fratik Baran, Benny’s use of body language can be represented as hierarchy (2014, p.417-421).

Trying to discuss the difference between romantic love verses friendship is rather difficult to understand. There is so much gray area between the two that most people have a hard time comprehending the differences. How can we tell when a friendship has moved away from just friendly love to a deeper romantic love? Looking into the topic we see a lot of the time men saying that they're best friends with this girl that they have fallen head over heels for. They call it being 'friend zoned', but on the other hand you can see the same problem concurring with women who find it impossible to tell a close male friend that her feelings for her go far beyond just being friends.

I'm sure you have not only heard, but also used the famous phrase "opposites attract." The statement stands true not only in physics and chemistry, but also in relationships and friendships. We tend to be attracted to people with personalities that differ from ours, so life would be more interesting, and desire the opposite of what we have. A perfect example of this, is Sula and Nel, best friends from Toni Morrison's novel, "Sula", where the conventional ideas of good and evil are turned upside down. The two girls are like opposite sides of a magnet, strongly attracted toward one another and useless when split apart. Life puts their friendship to the test by toying with love and sex

A true friend. For many, this is a concept that is easily personified but boundlessly difficult to explain. However, Michel de Montaigne, in his essay Of Friendship, attempts to clarify this relationship. Essentially, he states that true friendship occurs when both souls enjoy the connection and wish to have the relationship grow. Although this sounds much like love, de Montaigne claims the key difference is that passion is not constantly a factor among friends. This can be taken to mean that a friendship is a relationship that is chosen willfully, and cherished as much as a lover. In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, there is much evidence of such a relationship between the titular Hamlet and Horatio
