Why are friends important in life?
Friends make your life interesting and wonderful. Of course friends argue and have fights, that happens to everyone. That is how friendship is tested during these times of arguments and fights.
My friends have helped me greatly with me dealing with life. They have been there for me through alot of stuff. Friends can listen to you and give you help and advice if you want that from them, or they can just listen.
I have the best friends in the world, and I need to tell them that. If you have had bitterness and disappointment in your life, your friends can lift you up if you allow them to. Friends can also disappoint you and hurt you to. That is how some relationships work out.
In closing here are some huge no nos that can destroy friendship.
Don't make a move on your best friend's girl or boy friend, much less their husband or wife. Just a crappy thing to do. If they have broken up that is a different story somewhat. I would suggest that you find out from your friend if they are okay with you dating their ex. You don't need permission from them, it would just be a courtesy that you should do, just so there isn't alot of drama and hurt feelings.
Don't borrow money from them. If your friend has to remind you all the time about the money or vice versa, the friendship is headed down the drain. Unless it is a gift from you to them or them to you with out expectation of payment, it would be wise to not to borrow or lend to friends. The exception should be of course would be a great emergency where money is needed right away for you or your friend.
Don't lie or steal, the consequences are obvious.
Don't go into business together, unless you know each other very well and how both of you intend to run the business together. Alot of friendships are ruined because friends didn't know how difficult it would be to make co-decisions together. Running a business also requires many decisions on how money is spent. Once again refer to the above about friends and money.
If friends break up, don't try to be forced into choosing one over the other. The one who is doing this needs to be told they are risking the friendship because choosing is the last thing you want to do. If they are both behaving this way and it just keeps getting worse. The best thing to do might be to end both relationships and move on.

‘Aristotle’s advice is to have only as many friends as you can share joys and sorrows with’ The Shrink
If you are concerned that you don’t have as many friends as you think you should, this feeling may have been exacerbated by recent research. The facts, it seems, belie Sartre’s famous pronouncement that “hell is other people”. Instead they support an idea more akin to “health is other people”. Having friends won’t only help our happiness and wellbeing. Several studies have showed that – from increasing our longevity to ensuring fewer colds and better recovery after illnesses – friends are necessary for our very survival. So you might feel the pressure to widen your circle and be more sociable. This could be life-enriching. But there are caveats. For a start, we are not all made the same: some people are quite happy with their own company and feel little need for social contact. There is no reason for them to feel inadequate. It’s also advisable to cultivate a certain amount of self-reliance and avoid making one’s wellbeing too dependent on others, as they may not be there when you need them most.
When it comes to choosing our good friends, we should heed Aristotle’s advice to have only as many as you can share joys and sorrows with, which is likely to be a small number. For genuine friendship you need to be prepared to commit time and effort to doing things together, getting to know each other and being...
