Why do we need friends?
August 8, 2008 8:25am CST
Is it because we need a company when we're down? We need someone to comfort us when we are sad and to have fun with us when we're glad. We need friends to give us good advice. We need someone we can count on to treat us nice. We need friends to remember us when we have passed, sharing memories that will last. Is it because of this reasons? In you, why do you think we need friends in our lives?

Friends are thought of as joyous, freely chosen part of our lives - they have chosen us and that we havechosen them. It's not actually a need why we make friends. Friendship is a bond between people who enjoy one another's company, sharing same sorrows, ideas, knowledge, pain, struggle in life...Friendship is full of hidden assumptions and unspoken rules. There is now agreement where we are involve in friendship, or what to do if it goes sour. It is about give and take, we dont demand either. each of us has different views on our friends, some might even value more than their family or marriage...And i may say friendship defines what it means to be human...

Without friends we will be a stooge in this world, life will have less fun if we are a loner. No man is an island, he needs friends to stand by him, to be a pillow of strength when troubles seep through life. We are here in mylot not only are we after the pennies but also to widen our circle of friends. Thank you sheemadness, you are my newly acquired friend here. You are here to support my discussions likewise I try my best to give every support I can to you.

Dear friend, I do hope that as long as humans are social animals they enjoy friendship and the value of friends is known when we get the better side of friendship and moreover many friends have their own ways and in this some or may many become close too close that we tend to consider them as our best friends. Friends are those who really make us feel we are not alone we have someone to care and help may be more than that..

I'm not agree with you, i think people wrong if suggest that we need friends for share, take and give balance. If it is reason, you're love yourself not your friend. The reason we need friends because you're love and care for him/her. Beside that, you care yourself too.

I don't think loving yourself is being measured through friendship. What I believed when loving yourself it is being happy and contented to what you possess and you don't. But i guess that's how view it and I respect you for that. Any individuals has its own beliefs. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. :D

hi sheen! we need friends because we need company other than our families. we need friends to share things that we can't share with out families. we need friends to seek advice about problems that we can't tell our families. we need friends at schools because our families can't accompany us there. and i agree, friends are there so we can make our lives memorable. we make memories with them which we can reminisce in the future. there are things that only friends can give us. i need friends for these reasons.

We need friends to give us hope when all hope is lost, we need friends to remind us how to be good to others, we need friends to cry with us and console us when we cry, we need friends to point out our mistakes, we need friends to take care of us and take care of our families/kids when we are not there, we need friends who can loan us money when we are in need........ we need friends to give us some hand-me down clothes when they dont fit them anymore heheheheeeeeee. We need friends for fun

Hey there, I think we need friends so that we don't feel lonely. But be careful taht you don't go into a friendship with people that control you and try to bring you down everytime you try to stand up. I've been with those kind of friends before. I hope I'll get better friends in the future now. Cheers. :D
