o me, friendship is a relationship where both individuals can have a great time together, with whom there are less ego fights, with whom I can have open conversations, and who will prove loyal. A good friend always appreciates the good qualities in a friend, tries to mend the negative qualities, and encourages an honest and open relation. A good friend is a sense of inspiration and motivation. Good friends learn from each others' mistakes.
Based on my experiences, I have explored the different types of friends IVIEW DOCUMENT

For my in-school counseling group, I am developing and leading a group with the topic of ‘Friendship’ with six to eight sixth grade female students. These students were pre-screened for membership and mentioned concerns of friendship skills; how to make and keep friends and how to avoid gossip and ‘drama’. These students were selected for pre-screening based on the needs assessment completed by the site supervisor for practicum, which will be discussed in the next section. Based on my review of available and current literature on the topic of relationships in female adolescents, I am going to use relational-cultural theory (RCT) as a conceptual framework for my in-school counseling groupVIEW DOCUMENT

From the highest authority to the lowest bums living on the streets all of them have experienced in some way or the other one of these different kinds of friendships. We take this friendship for granted because it is something that exists naturally in society and most of us never really have to actually go out into the world looking for a friend. Those of us who have had to live in a foreign country or in new surroundings have learned how important this is in life.

But as the year progressed a friend resurrected our friendship, and now they are my best friends….. quite ironic considering the people i hated the most have become my greatest friends.

I believe that in his essay, “Friendship”, Emerson’s main point is that people should not be afraid to expand their friendly horizons. They should more try to open up and be honest with people. The essay investigates simply how to be more open with others and gives tips on differentiating between true friends and those whom we just refer to as friends.
There are many people whom we speak to and meet on an everyday basis. In everyday conversations we show others that they are favored “from the highest degree of passionate love, to the lowest degree of good-will, they make the sweetness of life.” It is believed by many that our intellectual powersVIEW DOCUMENT

Zimbardo uses his reward theory to show us how people get attracted to each other, being it friendship or a relationship. The idea revealed in the reward theory is that attraction is a form of social learning based on social costs and benefits and hence we like those who give us maximum rewards at minimum costs. Zimbardo also introduces concepts like proximity, similarity, self disclosure, and physical attractiveness as factors that determine our relationships.The principleVIEW DOCUMENT

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 friendshipVIEW DOCUMENT

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 sexVIEW DOCUMENT

There are many valuable things in life, but friendship may be the most valuable.
To live life without the experience of friendship, is not living. Human interaction is a
necessity to survival, but developed friendships are essential to the successful well being of
anyone. Based upon the American Heritage Dictionary, the definition of a friend is, ?A person
whom one knows, likes and trusts.? But to all, Friendship has no defined terminology. The

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.

Imagine a life where friendship didn’t exist, where there wasn’t anyone to go to when facing those difficult times that challenge our independence, forcing everyone to step up and face the reality of life alone. A life without friendship is like being left alone on a hot, lonely desert with no one around to help. The feeling of loneliness coming down in tears is the perfect example of a life without friendship. The quote by C.S.

True friendship is egalitarian. Everything is shared, loyalty to the friendship is equal, and the basis of the camaraderie is wholly altruistic. The friendship between the king Gilgamesh and the man of the steppe, Enkidu, was not a true and equal friendship. Loyalties and sacrifices to that friendship were disproportionate.
Friendship is conveyed in more than one way in Gilgamesh. The companionship between Enkidu and the animals of the steppe is the first example of friendship. Enkidu lived with the animals, as one of them:

But, no one can form a friendship until he/she realizes that the basis
of being friends is meeting the needs of the other person. One must be
a friend in order to have one (Mugglenet). Friendship and its main
components: loyalty-trust, support, and similar values are very well
emphasized in Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone.

By applying these evaluative aspects according to Socrates’ and Alcibiades’ characteristics and disposition in pursuing a friendship, the categories of their friendships are well elucidated.

It is strange to label any friendship a success or a failure; it is stranger still to call the friendship between Achilleus and Patroklos a failure, especially when it has long been celebrated as one of the greatest friendships in antiquity. After all, friendship is called a success when friends remain just that, and a failure when they part ways with diffidence. How else could we possibly judge friendship? I suggest, however, that the good of the friend is the end of true friendship, and that this principle can guide critical inquiry into the nature of friendship. The basis of this statement is Aristotelian. TheVIEW DOCUMENT
