The Roles Our Friends Play In Our lives
Friendship, and the roles that our close friends and acquaintances play in our lives are frequently undervalued and taken for granted. Some people don’t realize the extent that friends influence our lives as a whole. From almost the very beginning, up until the end of our time in this world you will have friends at your side. At every waking hour,
It goes without saying that our friends are some of the most beneficial components of our lives. Our friends are pillars of strength, and provide for us the moral and emotional support that we so desperately need. At a moment’s notice your friends will be there for you to lean on Often times, our friends share the same ambitions and passions that we do and will help you to pursue them. A good friend will care for your success, and will go the extra mile to ensure that you’re in good spirits. Our friends help to keep our spirits high in moments of distress or uncertainty. A good friend will even hurt us, or let us down, if it’s for our own good.
We develop our relationships with our peers early on in life, and learn to value the principles of friendship. More than anything else, our relationships with our friends are based predominantly upon the principle of trust. We learn to trust one another early on, when we confide in our friends our most personal secrets. As the relationship matures, so does the amount trust and faith you have in your friends to not lead us wrong. We become accustomed to trusting the judgement of our friends without hesitation.
Perhaps one of the more beautiful factors about friendship is that your friends will truly accept you for who you are, and love you for it. Friends are willing to overlook negative qualities and characteristics, and embrace the good ones. Genuine friendship will prevail regardless of religion, gender, skin color, ethnicity and personal beliefs. Your friends know you better than most, and will make sure that you stay true to yourself and help steer to you back in the right direction when you’re not.
The experiences and most memorable moments of our lives, along the various milestones and we encounter in our lives are usually spent right alongside those who we hold dearest in our hearts and lives. In order to get the most out of our lives we should savor and enjoy the time we spend with our friends, because one day we won’t be able to anymore.
