“One of the most beautiful qualities about friendship is to understand and to be understood”. Friendship is one of many building blocks in life.Although some friendships may be lower on the building it doesn’t mean it been there to support oneself as they continue to build their way up.

The good can be friends. Socrates says, “Perhaps half of it, and perhaps the whole of it, but we’re just not understanding” (p.339, 214B). What he means by half is that half of similar people can be friends; the good can be friends and the bad cannot be friends.

Part of friendship consists of accepting a friend's shortcomings. This theme, generally associated with A Separate Peace, means that friends should embrace each other's imperfections. Some people seem perfect with no flaws at all while others seem hopelessly imperfect with many flaws, but the truth is everyone makes mistakes. Friends should accept each other's shortcomings because unrealistic expectations can damage a relationship. In A Separate Peace, both Finny and Gene had difficulty accepting a friend's shortcomings.

Making friends based off of who you really are will get you better friends than trying to act like them or act cool. The people that think they know me could possible get surprised if I would actually open up to them and show them my true self.

Jarrod, he is my best friend and he knows just about everything that happens in my life, I tell him all my problems and I feel I can trust him with anything and everything.

I believe that it's the one thing that's greater than family because, you've carefully chosen those few special individuals to share in your life's journeys and experiences. I'm assuming that like me, you have many acquaintances as people seem to flock to you, but you are very cautious of those with whom you regard as a friend. In sum, friends can be considered as family, but not all family can be considered as friends. Just know that I am eternally playful and tend to be a prankster, so perhaps you prepare yourself for it! I'm down with verbal jabs, but may be a little rusty as most people are just too sensitive these days!
Friends are the family one chooses for himself. In many cases, close friends are involved or interested in the same types of activities. Though often heralded as the maker of friendships, these shared activities often are not. Similar interest may bring people together, but what makes friends stay together is a sense of belonging and support.

“A true friend accepts who you are and helps you become who you should be.” Steve and Nathaniel proved that friendship and happiness can be real in the novel The Soloist by Steve Lopez.
