I learn the value of friendship, how to give importance to others, how to let them feel your care while they are still around. I learn trusting and respecting other people though I haven't met personally. How about you friends what are the things you consider learned from your friends?

I've learned to respect my friends and respect their values and what they believe in. I expect the same from them. I've learned to stay away from people who claim to be my fried but talks about our mutual friends behind their backs...that just means this person most likely talks about me behind my back. I once had a friend who used to talk about others behind their backs and then ask me what I though about the other people (that ones she talked about). I always said that I didn't have anything bad to say about them. Later, I found out that she had gone and told them that I was talking about them which was so not true. So I learned to stay away from people like that. Don't talk about people you care about; they are worth more than that.

Right Dugsmom we should not talk about people we care about especially behind their back. If we notice something not good about them, we can tell them directly in a nice friendly manner letting them feel we care. Thamks for responding...

Hi Bing! Really we gain a lot from our friends who are really committed. Personally speaking I have no best friend as such but those I have in the real field and on the NET have learnt a lot. That a friend should not take his/her friend for granted, that as far as possible neither borrow nor lend money to your friend unless it is a dire necessity, Trust is the master key to real and enduring friendship.

friendship is a bond that brings people close to the hearts. it is the relationship that is above all other relationships. it has love, care, affection, trust, understanding, value for each other, respect, forgivenes, empathy and so much to give and share. from friendship i have learnt to value a relationship and to do justice to a relationship. this teaches me to carry a relation for years without parting ways. it teaches would to mend the relation when their are problems.

I have learned they are few friends you can really count on.and i stay very close to the ones who care about me.I learned not to depend on them so much as be there for them.I try and give as much love and share my feelings with my friends as possible.They are important to me and i think they feel the same of me.
