How far would you go to help a friend? Would you leave your comfort zone when a friend needs your assistance, say for example, he is in deep trouble? Just asking.

For my best friends, I would. And I have helped them leaving my comfort zone, but they have done the same to me too. I have the best friends in the world. I'd be so lost without them.

On the other hand we can't really expect other will do the same like us. Sincerity is the most important in friendship. I think that is what friendship means too~

Dear friend, I do help my friends according to my capacity and situation. Moreover I do not like my friends to get into any mess. More than that I feel one is lucky to get a helping friend. Moreover I do not feel any bad even if my friend is unable to help me. I feel sad for that friend who is not in a position to help me even if that friend wanted to.

SHAMRACK, I have to say we have the same sentiments, except for that part about not feeling bad when a friend is unable to help you. I might want to reconsider the friendship...

I love my friends and I would go as far as I could to help them out. I have in many situations went all out for my friends taken the blame for things that affected our relationship down the road but I dont regret it because I believe in loyalty and the best in people that I care about.

Okay, but don't let your friends go into trouble anymore. Don't ever bail them out and take the blame again. Friendship means enhancing people you love, not putting them in jeopardy.

Yes, if only she's my best friend, someone whom had helped me in the past. I don't mind going through hardships with a friend in need, be it emotionally, physically or mentally and financially. I don't ask for any forms of repayment from them, because i understand their kind of situation, and the support they really need at that point of time. When that friend of mine is really close to me, i can even take no-pay-leave from my job, just to be with them.

For me, it would really depend on what kind of trouble they were in, and if it would cost me $$, especially if I did not have any. But most of the time if it is something that there is a way that I could help them out some if asked, I would make sure and help them and offer them advice and Prayer if need be for that situation as well.

Yes, many times, friends only need a shoulder to lean on, a listening ear, a sound advice, a moral support, and everything goes well.

Hi eileen, for me, i really treat my friend as my real sister, if ever they need my help for what ever i can extend to them, I will, no matter what it is. I am down to earth and I am also lucky enough those of my friends do the same with me. They are really true friends as well. I am a friend that through thick and thin stay at your side. Welcome to the world of friendship my friend!

Friendship comes to an end when tested. If your friend betrayed you then let go. I can give him always a helping hand up to what I can offer only and not up to an extent of putting myself in bad shape,a real friend understands and not selfish in trying to understand.When in deep trouble,just weigh the circumstances where he is standing. I will not go for his reasoning if he is justifying lies.

You have a very sound contention there. There is such a thing as betrayal.

Hi eileen leyva: Of course, I'll lose part of my comfort, I'll offer my help, my money and my assistance to a loyal friend. I think that real friends will support themselves and we are happy when we see the other succeed. I don't have many friends but I think I have no doubt about this. ALVARO

I like the part where you said you guys feel happy for each other's success. People tend to be envious and wish for others who succeed to fail eventually. You guys are rare!

I would say that I would do my best to help a good friend of mine. Financially, I help so many people who I thought were friends, but eventually, they are avoiding me to pay me back when they have the ability to do so. I would say, not many people are good friend to me actually. I would say, that is hard to measure how selfless I am when comes to measurement. That would depend on how worthiness that particular person to me, and I would willing to extend my hands to help him/her.

Ha ha, money does come in the way of friendship. Well, that also tells you who your genuine friends are. Don't worry king, there is a friend for each one of us. You just have to keep looking!

i love my friends.... if in case there in big trouble because they did something bad... i can be there for them to give advices, but the rest is for them to fix..... if my friend is in big trouble because of uncontrolable instances like, somebody set them up, or frame them up, they're ill, etc... i will always lend a helping hand to them in ways i can fully give, being there to support them is being a true friend...

Choose your friends well, dianilvi, troublesome friends can only end in doom. If your company is always up for trouble, do well to split away. If they ask why, say you cannot be a party for trouble anymore. And that might get them into thinking that you are right, and then they might change for the good, and then you can be friends again.

I am a person who would really extend help to my dearest friends especially when they are in great trouble. Many times I prioritize them than my own need.

As far as almost ruining my name. I have a friend who needs money badly because his allowance will be delayed for two weeks. It's almost holy week so that means there's no way his father could send him anything. I don't have money then since I'm also a student. What I did was I went to my adviser and plead if I could borrow some cash. I'm not that close with my class adviser but I gather all strength to ask her. That's how far I could get.

Whoever you are talking about is not a friend. Find somebody else who would not do a bad thing to you and call this new acquaintance a friend.
