This can be supported when the boy was just a kid he and the tree were always happy and they both just appreciated each other’s company. However, as the boy grew up he started to appreciate the tree less and less and eventually just using her and taking anything that he wanted.

In The Giving Tree, Shel Silverstein uses the tree to symbolise giving and love that the tree has for the boy like a mother. In the story The Giving Tree, the tree acts as a motherly figure to the boy showing love and support.

If you have other ideas as to what friendship is, what are they? From Gene’s view of their friendship together it seems a little one-sided with Finney’s friendship being conditional to her. Finney is a great friend who is loyal and trusting. Finney pushes Gene into doing things that she may not normally do like cutting class. While Gene is secretly jealous of Finney and wants him to get in trouble and even jostled that made Finney fall, which Finney later forgives.
In my experiences thought I see some who have taken extreme measures to live and what in my own opinion is that some are just existing not living at all.

But If at times we feel like we have run out of love and/or happiness and someone comes along and offers us just a bit we reach out to snatch it up. We reach for all that we can get even if it comes at a high price. So often we begin bad relationships just because we feel we are lacking love and happiness and we want so badly for someone to share just a bit of theirs with us. As hard as it may seem at times what we really need is to accept ourselves and be happy with who we are. Then we will never need another being to make us feel that way.
