What mean to be a good friend? Mean to accept all what your friend make or say, just because you want make him feel better? How often are we aware that we control the choices we make? It doesn't matter what the situation, every decision is a choice. If you know that maybe he is not fair, you will accept, and you will enter in his game, just because there work . A 'sheep' is person that is a follower. Sheep group mean a group who don t think, just listen? Sheep are animals that are without exception dominated by a group instinct. They do everything together, when one eats they all eat, when one drinks they all drink, and when one lays down to chew its cud they all do. When one panics, all of them panic, unlike humans where that can only be said to be true of a majority of anyone group. However, just like humans, sheep are easily fooled. When they are fooled all of them are fooled. Do you think that exist a sheep syndrome?Do you like to be part from this kind of friendship, when you are agree with all, no comments, just listen and say 'YES YOU ARE RIGHT MY DEAR, YOU ARE BRILLIANT"If you are agree with your friend, even if in your soul you have doubts, you will be a follower? A sheep? Do you really want this kind of friendship?Even for leader can be dangerous, because will come one day, when he will look in his mirror and will see just a "nice" head of ordinary sheep.

Hello Ice Smile The answer is NO. What is the point in having friends if you are not there to tell them when they are wrong, or to argue with them, until both of you come up with a good solution. A friend is a person who should be there for you in the times of joy AND in the times of sorrow, when you are up and when you are down, that is a true friend.

Well i don't want to go into politics :D but we have to use our brains and our souls, and the change must come from us, every citizen, not from 1 president or 200 parliament members. If all of us said STOP, and really wanted to change the country we could - like some of my teachers in college said - if the economic people from the private business were put in the government, the costs would grow more, but in 6 months, we would have our prosperity back. The thing about friendship is like with love, it is a two way street :) A friendship is like a circle, it has no beginning and it has no end ;)

It depends. If it's the friend's last hope then will you destroy it? I think being a good friend sometimes just being quiet and stay by the friend so that the friend will know that the friend is not alone but still have a friend. We can give some influence or idea if the friend asks but don't forget to remind the friend to be the one who decide so the friend won't regret on what the friend will do in the future.

Hey icesmile! I don't agree with my friends just to make them feel good, at least most of the time! I try not to purposely hurt someone, but I will not go along with someone if I feel that they are totally wrong or are going to do something that will hurt them or someone else! I have never been a "sheep" or a follower nor have I been a leader! I just stay neutral! That is the safest way to be! People that are followers or sheep can find themselves getting into alot of trouble if they are not careful!
