How important you think friends are for you?

I think nobody will deny that friends are important to us. But how important are they? I mean how far would you go for your friends? Do you have some friends that are so important for you that you are willing to give you life for? I currently have a very good friend of mine that I will say I would definitely sacrifice something for her. But if it comes to a life or death matter, I have no idea. What about you?

If you find a real friend, he may be like a God to you. But it is very difficult to get this type of friend nowadays. But I do not mean that they are not available in this world. They are obviously residing. We just have to find the right one basing upon our luck. I believe that "A friend in need is friend indeed."

Thanks for your reply. Maybe it is not difficult to find real friends. It is just we aren't ready to open ourselves to others. We are so aware of how many people out there that are so fake and want to take advantages on us that we are closing ourselves from people.

Friends are important in a sense that they are the second set of person who would help you in times of need next to your family. They're there for a purpose and they play a very important role to your well being as a person in a sense that they can influence you to do something better. They cheer you up because you have the same interest and you can share them some secret which you can't freely tell to your family.

Thanks for your reply. I also think friends are important but then how far would you go is the key. I think most people will say they are willing to however far it is required but in reality, do they? If your friend requires so much help from you that will put you into a difficult situation, what would you do? Most of us will say we will still go for it and I do hope that we do as what we say. There are times when others are counting on their friends for some serious things which in the end it is forgotten and they run into troubles.

Thanks for your reply. I think if those that are not worth dying for, then we can't really say they are good friends at all. But for those who are really worth, would you really do it when the time comes? I sometimes hesitate to say that I will because I am too afraid that I cannot do it.

Thanks for your reply. What if your best friend ask you for a great sum of money? Or ask you to take a whole week leave off work to help him with something? Would you do it?

Thanks for your reply. If a friend is as close as like a brother or sister, I think it is obvious we will do all we can for them. I also have a friend whom I think we are really very close. But is it that close, I don't really know for sure.

Friends are very important to me, social life is a big aspect of my lifestyle. I feel some friends are on different levels of friendship though, like best friend, friend, buddy, you know? For my best friends I would sacrifice a lot for them because they would do the same for me. Other friends maybe just considered social partners for communication for me.

Thanks for your reply. Of course we all rate our friends that some are closer and some are just so-so. There are just so many of them whom seem to be close to us but in fact are only on the surface. Deep in side, we don't even share anything at all.

Thanks for your reply. Everyone says friends are important. But important how? I mean if they are just meant to be there when you are in difficult times, wouldn't the relationship be rather strange? I mean if somebody can't really help when we are in difficult situation, should we still make friend with him or even get close with him?

Hi, for me friends are too important for me. They are the one who give me support when my family members are not around. Although they are very important for me but i wont sacrifice life for them. It is not a clever action to sacrifice your own life for other people. But if want me to sacrifice my life for my family member i will do it. That's all i want to say. Happy Myloting!!!

Thanks for your reply. I think when it comes to sacrificing the life for something, it is difficult to determine whether it is clever or not because it is only in very extreme condition that one will sacrifice the life and then they are usually so rare that nobody really knows what is the right thing to do.

I used to placed alot of emphasis on friendship until I found out that not everyone who will thinks like you. For my friends I will bend backwards for them and then something happen to me and I realized that the friends I treasured were not thinking the same way as me and so I found out what the true meaning of friendship is to some people. Now I only have two friends that I genuinely hope that they see me as such. I will do anything for them. These friends are new ones but their friendships are one that I enjoyed and so I will do anything for them as long as it is within the law.

Thanks for your reply. You have pointed out the exact same problems I have faced in the past where there are friends that I treasure so much and can do so much for only to find out that they don't really think the same way. Life always play jokes on us but then we just cannot take it nicely.

Friends are very important are very important in a person's life. The kinds of people you class as friends will show what kind of person you are and how you want to be perceived. Friends will be there for you when you need them and comfort you in your times of need. They are also important to how successful you are in life.

Thanks for your reply. It really seems that friends are important and most of the time we are told that they are important when things are going bad for us. But then, doesn't it seems strange that we are treasuring them because we want to have them for us when we need them?

Thanks for your reply. So, you are ready to give everything for your friend? But at the time you are giving everything, what about your family? Your loved ones? I am confused sometimes when people say that they can do whatever they can for their friends because honestly I don't think there is no limit for this.

Thanks for your reply. Of course to give life is the extreme, but I wonder how far you could go? Let say your friend has a serious disease and need a kidney to continue life where you so happen to be the perfect donor for him. He is your only best friend, so would you?

Thanks for your reply. I also takes it serious when dealing with friendship in that I can do a lot for my friend and not expecting a lot back. But then, can you really stand a friend really not paying you back anything at all despite how much you have done for them? I am afraid I can't.

Friends are very important for me. I love them. I am ready to help them in whatever I can. But I must say that I don't expect them to help me when I need them. I firmly believe in my own strength. It is not because I don't trust them, but it is because I don't want to test my friends, for I fear they may not come up with my expectations and hence I lose them.

Friends are important because you have someone to talk to. Life can get pretty hard sometimes and there's always going to be moments where you need to tell someone how you are feeling. They also make life exciting. When you're down they're always there to pick you right back up. They know how to make you feel happy and will always be there for you whether you need to talk or need a favor. They know and accept who you are. Knowing that your friends accept you the way you are just makes you feel good about yourself.
