Essay - FRIENDSHIP referat


“True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity, before it is entitled to the appellation.”

George Washington

In all that talking with the teen-agers from all over the world, the most frequent thing is friendship. In our days we assist very often at negative forms of friendship manifestation, from the most exteriorized ways to the most expressed in vulgarly language.

Friendship is a human characteristic, fact visible even by Aristotle (even before Epicurus), who presumed that “nobody can live without friends, even if he/she has all the fortunes in the whole world.”

Friendship is also a manifestation form of self knowledge, a capacity of the human being to refer him self on others. Of course, the human kind must look at themselves, inside and outside, like in a mirror, not in one deceptive kind of way, but who reflects correctly his personality, without misrepresenting it, one way or another, underneath one appearance or another

True friendship is based on mutual confidence and spirit of sacrifice. It’s distinguished by devotion and by respecting the given word.

Those are the most common tips of how to be a true friend: treat your friends the way you want to be treated keep secrets that are told to you pay attention when your friend is talking with you keep your promises share things with your friend, don’t be a selfish person always tell your friend the true and stick up for your friend.

August the 3rd is the International Friendship Day for most of the nations in the world, time to recognize your friends and their contribution to your life. Friendship helps to bring peace and positivism to the globe. Friends come in many shapes, size and guises: school friends, work colleagues, siblings, partners, neighbors.  Pull out all the stops and let your friend know they are truly appreciated.

Strong friendships may be the most important stress-fighter you have. Socializing has proven health benefits, so spend time with your friends.

In the dictionary, friend noun is:

a person whom one knows, like and trust

a person with whom one is allied in a struggle or cause; comrade

one who supports, sympathizes with, or patronizes a group

an acquaintance

The dictionary makes one small omission too. it doesn’t speaks of the years that a friendship endures, the laughter that fills the air when friends are together, the support, understanding and comfort a friend can offer or the anguish you cannot escape from when a friend is dying. The dictionary, I'm afraid, cannot begin to define the word: friend.

So then what is this magic called Friendship? Is there a magic wand that silently transforms you and those special people on a journey into, what sometimes can be a lifelong relationship? Is it mutual admiration, common interests, the need to be a friend? Or is it just an enduring tie that bonds you together, allows you to almost think as one and gives you one of life’s greatest joys.

Friendships are precious jewels. Treat them as such.

Enjoy them!

Celebrate them!

And never take them for granted.

“A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out. Friendship is one mind in two bodies.”
