In this era of globalization, people are busy chasing for material wealth,leaving behind many valuable things. It is undeniable that our society is becoming more materialistic.For most of us,money is the most important thing on earth.However, we have forgotten that there are certain things which money could not buy.To name a few,friendship,family,love and health.But which is the most valuable thing in our life?In my opinion,friendship is what I will cherish the most.
Different people have different meaning of friendship, for such as some trust in a friendship that he/she won’t hurt you. Others felt it is unconditional love, however some felt friendship as companionship. People form different meaning of friendship based on the experiences they had. Friendship is not just being together or sharing good moments, it’s is when someone is there for you during your worst phrase of life. That’s why friendship is eternal.
For me, a good friend is someone who understand me, accepts me for what I am and at the same time inspires me to do the best. At a personal level, a true friend should not give up on me, should always forgive my mistakes and never judge me by my action may be rash and inconsiderate.
True friendship is very rare, it’s perhaps the only relation that survives the trials, tribulations and ordeal of time and still remains the same. In a friendship, you share knowledge, care, concern, thoughts, and many others, most friendship is able to last long if one takes their friends importantly and so much the other party. You willingly to help them, enjoy each other company, jokes, share information, laugh together and many more.
We live in a very competitive world. Most of us are caught up in the rat race or paper chase. Mounting work pressures and demanding family commitments take a toll on our time and energy. Consequently most of us experience mood swings due to high expectations placed upon us. It is during times like these, when we are burdened with responsibilities and life seems to be an endless uphill struggle, thet we seek the comforting words of a friend; a friend who urges you to pick up the pieces and move on. A good friend is always there to lend helping hand or to lendus a shoulder to cry on. At the same time, a friend should be trustworthy and loyal. When friends trust us with secrets, we should never betray their confidence. No one can confide in someone whom he cannot trust to keep his secrets.
It may be impossible to find all these virtues in a single friend. However, should I come across such a friend, I shall treasure our friendship for life. As I reminisce about the good times I have shared with my best of my friends, the words of William Shakespeare ring in my ears:
'The friends thou has, and their adoption tried, Grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steel.'
The feeling of having a friendship can’t be measured through words, it comes right within you. Your heart defines who you choose your friends.
“Real friendship, like real poetry, is extremely rare – and precious as a pearl.” Quoted by Tahar Ben Jelloun
Yes, friendship that has stood the test of time should be most revered and happy is the man who is blessed with such a friend. Lastly, I think I agree that the most valuable thing in life is friendship.
