A little bit about friendship
By Alexander Ushakov | August 19, 2016
Friendship. Every person thinking about friendship remembers his close person, animal, or even a friend. I want to discuss: what is a friendship, do I have friends and does the friendship really exist?
«Wikipedia» gives the definition of friendship, like «a kind of selective and interpersonal relationships between people with similar interests and hobbies.» The mutual sympathy, trust, patience, willingness to help – are mandatory signs of friendship. I think it is true, because I cannot find the more precise definition of a friendship. For example, love is a feeling, this is when you want to see the person, you want to understand what he thinks about and how he lives. In friendship you are also open, you are sincere, you are selfless.
One day my sister told me that friends do not exist- it’s only companions. Someday, I would agree with that, but not now. I do not have many friends, but they are real and proven over the years. We have experienced a lot of things and go along the same path. Do I regret anything? No.
Does friendship really exist? I think yes, it does. Friendship does not depend on the age, sex, or nationality. The friendly feelings are one of the strongest. Friendship changes many people and it has changed me, and I am very thankful for that.
