The Importance of Friendship

August 21, 2013

Friendship means so many different things. Friendship means that you aren’t be judged and you are accepted for just the way you are, regardless of your faults. A true friend accepts everything about you. Friends can also forgive each other in times of disagreement and strife. True friends are always there for each other.


Friends have many things in common. This makes friends more understanding of each other. Friends can be of the same gender, or like the same kinds of food, movies and other stuff. It’s always better when you can enjoy things in life when you can enjoy them with someone else too. Friendship can also seem a little overwhelming at times. This could be because friends are afraid to let each other down or disappoint them. It’s OK for friends to like different things and participate in activities without the other person. A true friendship means that each person can stand on their own and be independent of each other. This helps keep the friendship more enjoyable.

It’s important for teenagers and adults to have a friendship because everyone needs others from time to time. Having friends is similar to having family. They are people that you can count on in your greatest time of need. They can help you in times of trouble, and be there to enjoy and share in the great parts of your life too. Most people only have 2-3 true friends their entire lives. True friends should never be confused with acquaintances, which are people you are friendly with on almost a daily basis. True friendship will stand the test of time.
