Friendship

So many people say that you won’t amount to anything, you won’t make it, you won’t succeed- unless you’re on your own. But those people forget the heroes standing behind them- the unsung warriors- the brave fighters and peacemakers- who make life what it is. These people are friends, compadres, amigos, amis and even the chums- add the vibrancy and color to this world that is otherwise a monotone black and white. These people- who no matter what is wrong and what they are doing, support you every step of the way and hold you up when you’re falling.

Ladies and gentlemen, never forget these people watching you, guarding you through life’s hardships. They will be your light, your happiness to guide you through this never ending darkness. If soon forgotten, the marks- and sometimes even the scars- these people cast on your heart will still exist, though their reasoning may be lost. Everyone you meet- every single person impacts you in some way, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem at the time. Then there are those people- the special people to touch your heart- who leave marks so big or so deep on your soul, that you could never forget their mark no matter how much you try. These people will hold the greatest impact on your life and whose presence will stick with through all times. There marks aid to characterize who you are and how your life will go.

These heroes will be able to tell you what’s wrong, even though you may not know it yourself. The look in your eyes- they see through your lies, even if they blind you. You can tell them you’re fine- straight face lie- and they’ll see straight through it. You can’t fool them, can’t trick them- they know you too well. Don’t even try it- it’s not worth the effort.

They are your sunshine, your hope, your light. You can’t let them extinguish or you’ll extinguish yourself. You need them to hold you together- to hold your seams together while you’re breaking apart. They’ll hold you when you

    Everyone has had a bruise, some of them last longer than others, but they always disappear. Scars, just as Leav writes, leave marks. Both are painful, but one leaves you with the reminder that you were once hurt. When you truly love someone and things don’t work out, you are left with hurt, and pain, confusion, and frustration. “We had no ending, no said goodbye. For all my life, I'll wonder why.” It’s a different type of pain to feel confusion; to never really know why you can’t have the one person you want, to never feel closure. For those who have dealt with never knowing why things ended, they will always have a scar. “What was it like to lose him?" Asked Sorrow. There was a long pause before I responded: It was like hearing every goodbye ever said to me—said all at once.” If you think about all of the times you’ve had to say goodbye to someone you love, you realize that goodbyes are hard and they can be emotionally draining. Imagine all the emotion you feel from all the goodbyes ever experienced, hearing them all at once could wreck a soul. The scars heal, the reminder is there but “Over time she will learn, not to miss them.” It’s not easy missing someone you can’t have, anyone that has experienced this knows and can relate to her writing. It goes hand in hand with the old saying, “time heals all wounds.” With time the pain subsides, and eventually you…

    Every day we are given a fresh start; another chance to move forward in our lives and accomplish the things we thrive to achieve day to day. A new day can also liberate us from our past mistakes and provide us with a chance to change our ways. We are all faced with misery and misfortune at points in our lives, some more than others. We must recognize that it is not the burden in itself that shapes who we are, but how well or how poorly we deal with the difficulties. Sometimes misfortunes can be seen in a negative light; because it seems unjust, therefore we response in a negative matter, and become negligent to change. Overcoming tragic events is what truly counts, for we are meant to live happily and in acceptance that there are things that we cannot change. In many cases, individuals seem to feel as though they’ve lost an amount so great that they are unable to free themselves of the pain. This perspective often leads to further suffering. A Temporary Matter by Jhumpa Lahou and Kiss Me by Andrew Pyper demonstrate a loss of identity, negligence towards communication, and eventually leading to the destruction of a relationship.…

    This quotation reminds me of when my friend broke up with her boyfriend and she was really sad. To make her feel better, my other friend, her and I all had sleepovers for 6 days just to make her forget about her ex-boyfriend. We made her laugh and we told her how she’ll find a better boy. Also how he wasn’t worth her tears. This quotation reminds me of that memory because it was a really dark moment for her. Whenever she heard a sad song, she would just burst into tears. But we helped her get through it by being there for her. Another memory that I had that this quotation reminds me of is when one of my other close friend’s dad got cancer and I felt so bad for her. I was always there for her when she wanted to talk and I helped her get through her dark moments. I know how it feels like to have a sick dad and it must have been killing her on the inside. Whenever she cried I would tell her its okay, he’ll get better. This quotation means a lot to me because I can relate to it a lot.…

    4. As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn’t supposed to ever let us down, probably will. You’ll have your heart broken and you’ll break others’ hearts. You’ll fight with your best friend or maybe even fall in love with them, and you’ll cry because time is flying by. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, forgive freely, and love like you’ve never been hurt. Life comes with no guarantees, no time outs, no second chances. you just have to live life to the fullest, tell someone what they mean to you and tell someone off, speak out, dance in the pouring rain, hold someone’s hand, comfort a friend, fall asleep watching the sun come up, stay up late, be a flirt, and smile until your face hurts. Don’t be afraid to take chances or fall in love and most of all, live in the moment because every second you spend angry or upset is a second of happiness you can never get back. – Unknown.…

    I learnt that when my heart is voicing out for her company, I cannot console it anymore. I belong to the world and the world is wild. The world is free of wilderness of such vast extremity, that reaching out for her seems wild, passionate, longing, quenching, complete. I run with all the might and I see her in the distance, broken. I see her broken guarded by walls of pain. I see that in the dark flame of love I seemed to have wondered…

    Friendship is a form of interpersonal relationship generally considered to be closer than association, although there is a range of degrees of intimacy in both friendships and associations.

The study of friendship is included in the fields of sociology, social psychology, anthropology, philosophy, and zoology. Various academic theories of friendship have been proposed, among which are social exchange theory, equity theory, relational dialectics, and attachment styles.…

    Love Is Not All, or Is It?

    • 1260 Words
    • 6 Pages

    Love isn’t everything, it’s not food, beverages, sleep and it sure won’t act as a roof against the rain. Love cannot offer a sinking man in peril a life-saving “floating spar”. As he rises, he sinks, only to rise and sink again. Love cannot give the air we need to fill our “thickened lung”, it can not clean blood or heal broken bones. Yet for all the things love can’t do, a man without love is a man “making friends with death”. The lack of love alone in a difficult hour will pin you down by pain, whine for release or harass you by the power of past resolution’s. One might be driven to sell love for peace, trade their memories for a meal, but never give up love even if it was to release horrible pains or to get food to live.…
