Similar to Confucius, Kapur believes that friendship is based on the disposition of “benevolence” and “justice”. Not only do these moral values form part of the friendship, but these also justify “special treatment of friends” (Grunebaum, 1993). Should there not be these factors involved, there is no real friendship at all. While it is not uncommon for many to associate friendship with the unspoken promise that we ought to treat our friends well, and want the best for them, the basis of friendship is not and should not be that of morals. In contrary to that being the necessary “promise” that ties friends together, the commitment friends have towards each other (as a person) is the underlying “promise” friends make upon entering the friendship.
If in my Applied Morals class at Oberlin someone were to propose friendship as a significant moral paradigm and essential aspect of ethical consideration, I am sure their proposition would be met with scoffs and laughter. So how did we end up at a point in society where friendship is not taken into moral consideration if some of the most important Hellenic minds were so adamant about its importance? I would argue that friendship must return to post-modern life as a tool of improvement to our society, without stripping friendship of its inherent purity. Friendship is an ontological need for humans but also an overlooked political device and possibly the only solution to the many social issues in our current Trumpian era. As Nicgorski says “friendship
There are still many parts of this chapter that confuse me, such as the difference between companionship and friendship, but for the most part, the rest of the chapter was comprehensible. Lewis touched on some really interesting points about the need of friendship in our lives. He argues that we do not need friendships in order to survive, but I beg to differ. For starters, many of the friendships that I am blessed to be a part of are almost categorized as familial friendships. In other words, I view many, if not all of my very close friends as family; I would do anything for them!
I am living proof that is not always the case. If you have a good support system and a strong to fight for what you believe in, you can achieve anything. I became a mother at 16 and I have loved every sleepless night and tantrum thrown by my beautiful little girl, and I am so thankful I have her. I love being a mother. My life feels as though it has purpose.
Introduction: Growing up as a little girl I knew that I would do anything to make my dreams come true. I knew that I would not let anyone stand in the way of my goals and dreams. My passion is to become a business owner of my own hair salon or beauty salon. Being the youngest out of my sister and me, I knew that I have a lot of pressure and expectations to follow behind. My parents always put pressure on to do well in school and go above and beyond especially when it came to grades.
This often happens because a woman will always have this fear of being seen as a “slut”. Not just by you, but also by her friends. Anyhow, if a girl likes you and feels attracted to you, she’ll want to have sex too. In this post, I’ll provide you with several useful tips on how to make her comfortable getting into bed with you.Never Be Direct About Sex
They were not very influential but they were my best friends and I enjoyed hanging around with them. We used to go everywhere together, hang out every night. School came and my grades were low and it was not because I was dumb it was because I did not care. I did not care about school I thought that after I graduated I was going to move out the house and live by myself. I thought that everything would be over and that I would still be best friends with my friends when high school ended.
I got back on my feet and started striving to become someone I could be proud of again. I decided I wasn’t going to sit there and wait to feel better again. I was going to make myself better, because I am the one thing in life that I can control. I can ensure that my life will be just what I want it to be. I will be someone who does something with my
Both Brendan and I did not know who we were, but by getting to know each other and comparing ourselves with each other, we began to gain an understanding of who we were. The reason for our behaviors of becoming close friends is because we come to associate with people who are like us and share similar views with us. The more we compared ourselves to each other, the more we realized on closely related we were which led to us creating a bond between each other and the ability for us to figure out who we were. The consequences of us learning more about ourselves and becoming more connected as friends led to us to think higher of ourselves than what were really were which is the better than average effect. This led us to joining the wrong group of students as friends in order to solve for our problem of the uncertainty identity
We all have flaws and nobody is perfect. Insecurities will still be there and it will be hard to overcome. “This above all: To thine own self be true.” I will live by this forever, with my heart, with my mind, with my words and with my soul. I will forever be true to myself and never change myself to become someone
