Friendship is a word describing a close/strong relationship.

A good friend should understand and listen and should be listened to. Just as the quote  »Communication to a relationship is like oxygen to life. Without it … it dies.« by Tony Gaskins.

Friends are important for a lot of reasons, one of them being mental health. Humans are intellectual being. Our minds are always filled with thoughts. These thoughts can be ether positive or negative, we’ll share them. Say, you`re having a bad day. Depending on what kind of person you are, usually you wouldn’t spread negativity on to ‘just a friend’, you’d talk to a close/best friend, since they know you better, they can relate, give advice and simply just listen.

My best friend is Lina and she’s an amazing friend. She’s super caring, understanding, etc. I kind of feel bad for her, because she has to put up with my stupidity and randomness. I have kind of a YOLO (you only live once) mentality, so I often do/say stupid, embarrassing things. But she’s ok with it.

Friendship is a kind of a relationship. Friends are people that understand and respect each other.

Good friends know how to have fun without hurting each other and play together. They support and care for each other. I think the most important thing to become a good friend is to respect the others and show your kindness.

People can’t live without friends especially good friends because we are social organisms. We need somebody to listen to us and talk with us. Good friends do that when you don’t feel good or you have a lot of problems.

I think I have some very good friends and I spend a lot of time with them. I know some of them from school or from table tennis club or they are my neighbours and I’ve known them since I was very young. I think I can rely on them because they can rely on me. I’m just happy that I’ve got friends who make me smile when I’m sad or angry or do favours for me.

Friendship is a very important relationship between two or more people who are very close to each other. It can be the reason for your happiness, but sometimes even sadness – it is always like that when you really care about someone. There are several different types of friendships and each one is a world of itself.

In my opinion, really good friends are rare, but everyone could find one. Friends are one of the most important people in our lives and they can our personality, behaviour and many other things. A good friend is someone who supports you and always stands by your side, but also tells you when you are doing something wrong. A true friend isn’t ashamed of you and can proudly say: ˝Yes, this is my best friend and I’m happy to have her.˝  A good friend makes you laugh and laughs with you and is someone in whose company you enjoy. Friends should always find some time to hang out with each other.

Most of the friendships don’t last forever, but it is an important part of our lives, no matter how long it is. It is important that the time you have spent with your friend isn’t wasted.

I have a group of friends whose company I enjoy the most and one friend who knows me really well and is always with me. I really like my best friend. She always knows what to say in a specific moment and knows how to make me laugh when I am not in a good mood.

I think I am also a good friend. Although I have several different hobbies and I’m a very busy person I always find some time to hang out with my friends or just chat on the phone with them when they need me. I once read: ˝Some talk to you in their free time and some free their time to talk to you. Learn the difference.˝ and I really believe in this quote. Your best friend is always there for you (even when you are sad) and not just when he needs you because he is bored or has a problem.
