Friendship is the most important thing to teens. There are two types of friends. There are friends with whom we have polite chats and there are our best friends. A friend is defined as a person that you know well. You can trust them and you respect each other’s opinion. For me friends are like family and I know that I can trust them. I like to go out with my friends to have some fun. I also like to talk with them because I know that they like me the way I am. If I need help with something they will always be there for me and I’ll also be there when they need me. Friends should always be together and school is a good place to make some friends. However, a friend can influence us in bad ways so we must be careful.
When we have a friend we need to do everything we can to make him/her happy and this is the essence of friendship. Making our friends happy is like the moon at night. My goal is to make my friends laugh all the time. I just want to make them happy even when I am sad.
I don’t need a lot of friends because I have the best friends I’ve ever wished and I am so happy with them! I can’t live without them!
