Friendship is a part of each individual’s life. Friendship is also an important part of life of preadolescents (Britannica). We got to know a person for us to build a better relationship among them. But before we do that we should know how friendship works and ask things that explain what really a friendship means. Why is it important for us to be friends with others? What values shows a true friendship? What does is it gives you as an individual? When is the time that we need a friend? Does friendship only needs to be given to the right person? And how can friendship helps you to be a better person?

It is important for every individual to be friends with other people so that they can have someone who will accompany them in some situation. Friendship is a relationship that can be treasure and can help you gain trust from other people.

According to Wikipedia.org, there are values found in friendship:

  • The tendency to desire what is best for the other,
  •  sympathy and empathy,
  • honesty, perhaps in situations where it may be difficult for others to speak the truth, especially in terms of pointing out the perceived faults of one’s counterpart,
  •  mutual understanding and compassion;
  •  ability to go to each other for emotional support,
  • enjoyment of each others company,
  • trust in one another,
  • positive reciprocity — a relationship is based on equal give and take between the two parties,
  • the ability to be oneself, express one’s feelings and make mistakes without fear of judgment and
  • of course it is very important to have honesty, trust, sympathy, respect and helpfulness in friendship.

Friends can help you when you know that you can’t do something by yourself but those people are the ones who are willing to have a long-lasting friendship with you. Friendship helps you to have someone who will motivate you in your life, who can help in making you a better person and it gives you the assurance that there’s always someone that you can rely on to. But is there a right time to have a friend? , having a friend doesn’t need the right time, one should not find friend because they just need something or just want to take it for granted. You can find friends and have them if you feel that you’re alone because they can be the one who can cheer you up and give some colors into your life. But you should remember that you need to choose friends that can make you happy, the one that you can trust and may lead you to a right path. Because a right and healthy friendship among other people can give you chance to have someone whom you can ask, especially if you need another perspective in making big decisions in your life or even some flaws of yours that you need to be change in order to become a better person.

A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out (Walter Winchell). It just shows that a real friend will never leave you. They are the one you can run into in difficult times.
