Good morning, my dear teachers
What is friendship? The answers may be different. But one thing is clear that friendship is the most important ingredient in the recipe of life. We cannot live without friendship just as we cannot survive without air and water. Friendship gives us a feeling of security and warmth, and friendship encourages us to go ahead all the time.
Everyone needs friends and is eager to get friendship. When we feel happy, we can share our happiness with friends. When we feel gloomy, friends will comfort us. If we are arrogant, our friends can persuade us, and they can make us confident and brave when we are discouraged.
Friendship is valuable. It can touch your heart and give you hope. Many people are proud of having a good friend. True friendship must be sincere and must not have conditions. If you help your friends for no reason but simply because they are your friends, this means that you regard your friends as yourself. This is true friends.
True friendship should be based on mutual understanding, not on mutual benefit. Moreover, both must also have similar ideals. If not, their friendship still cannot last long. Sometimes, people have good friends when they are young and studying in school. However, after graduation, when they are working in the society, their friendship will soon come to an end.
Mutual understanding doesn’t always mean that we should know every thing of our friends. It means that they have similar ideals and trust each other. On the other hand, doing similar things can build up the friendship.
In fact, friendship isn’t always easily kept. When you want to keep a friend, you should treat him or her like you want to be treated. Keep the secrets that your friend tells you. Keep your promise with your friend. Share things with your friend. Stick up for your friend. We should try our best to protect the friendship from being hurt. As an old saying goes, “Friendship cannot stand always on one side.” True friendship should be able to stand all kinds of tests.
Because of friendship, our lives are full of happiness. Therefore, the more friends we have, the more pleasure we can share with them. Let’s say “Thank you” to our friends for their love and care. No matter where we go or who we become, never forget to keep the beautiful friendship!
