Forming strong friendship is one of the most important aspects of life as a student. Friends are like the substitute of our family, especially when we are distant to our family. Look for allies is even harder rather than look for foes. A lot of people tried their best to look for these friends whether it takes some payment in form of mental and spiritual. So why do people compete in looking for friends?
Such respect may even rise to admiration. You value one another as people, and you enjoy one another’s company. You are their friend, not for how they can benefit you or how they can bring you pleasure, but simply because you like them. This is the highest form of
Kindness is defined as having the quality to be generous, friendly, and considerate.Being kind to someone, and even yourself shows that you are driving a positive vibe into each other’s lives. Being kind can be difficult in certain situations, but sometimes it is necessary in order to be the “bigger person”. However, kindness is a win-win for both people, the one showing kindness, and the one receiving kindness. Some may argue that in today’s society, kindness is dying away, because of the recent tragic and controversial topics. We still should strive for kindness because without it, we would be instead mean and rude which would get us to nowhere.
Friendship has no place for betrayal; if it does then it is no true but a superficial relationship. Everyone wants that one person with whom they can think aloud. True friendship does not have a fixed definition but has a belief. As said by C.S. Lewis “Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art… It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.” True friendship means bonding between two different people and as it grows stronger and stronger, it has a lot of positive aspects.
Amy Morin said, “They often encourage their children to talk with them about their problems, but they usually don't put much effort into discouraging poor choices or bad behavior.” This shows that as parents, they can make their child open up and talk to them but never help them make the right decisions. While they want to be more of a friend, you can argue both sides. A child would love if their parents were their friend and they can be as open as they want to them as if they were in school. But If a child does not have authority figures to protect him/her then there will be little to no rules/boundaries on what they can do then they can have lack of self-discipline, become self-centered, battle with authority, act out, and also take in bad habits such as underage drinking and the use of drugs. Now, why do parents become this way?
Know that we, who love you do not see you as perfect, we love that you are special. Nevertheless, we recognize, like us, you will make mistakes and fall short. For us love is not blind, unconditional love is about actions more than feelings. Unconditional love doesn’t mean you love everything about the person. It means you do not need them to be different than they are for you to be happy or to love them.
Leonardi Shish Philosophy 202 4/24/16 On friendship and virtue In today’s world where individualism is very predominant, people rarely take into account the philosophical view of friendship. Not to say that we are totally selfish and self-centered but we take friends as the help in our journey through life rather than people with whom we can share our goals and values and rejoice in our achievements. In today’s world we are who set goals and choose our path in life depending on the values we possess. Friendship is seen as a way of enjoyment and utility rather that something that can help us grow in virtue and become better persons. However there are some exceptions since some do care about friendship and think about it on a more philosophical
These are the kind of friendships that are the harder to make and to keep, and that’s why we all have very few of this kind of friends, if any. These are the friends that know all about how you function emotionally; you’ve told them your fears and sad experiences from childhood, they know your insecurities, what makes you happy and what upsets you. These are friends you can easily talk to and the friends who you love the most. You might think that, because this kind of friendship seems so ideal, you might never encounter difficulties with them, but that’s not true. These kind of friends are actually the ones that can hurt you the
I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you have perfected. Love looks not with eyes, but with the mind The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart. I know you are only gone for a little while, but it feels like an
Friends may accompany us when everything is fine but there are very few friends who will stay back and go all out for us when the going gets tough. Our family, on the other hand, will never leave us in a lurch; no matter how difficult it is, they will try their level best to see us through the rough patch in life. In order words, we can always count on them to be there for us. Moreover, there are some friends who might have bad intentions and who might do things that can harm us to serve their own interest, but that is seldom heard of among family members.
