Today during my Honors English II class we started to redo our explanative speeches from last year for those who received low scores. Halfway through, I turned to my friend and started to talk about the speech I had given, which had been about what friendship is. The two of us (my friend and I) talked about this subject for awhile and it made me think that friendship is a great many things.
As my friend and I agreed, friendship is sitting in silence for an hour together and not feeling awkward. The knowing that this person is just with you because they want to be. Friendship is laughing so hard that you have to grasp each other to not fall over. Friendship is not asking to take a bite because you know they’ll say yes. It’s saying “I hate you” and really meaning “I love you”. Friendship is not having to say your sad because they know just by looking at you.
Friendship is all of these things and so much more. There is no limit. If I was to take the time to write them all down, our generation would long be extinct before I finished.
Even if you don’t have a best friend or even an extremely close friend (as some of us find ourselves), you should still understand friendship minutely. We see it every moment, whether it be in the crowded hallway of a high school or on the movie screen of the cinema. So even if you haven’t experienced it, there are places where you can get the idea.
Friendship is one of the purest forms of love. Forever be grateful for your friends. You never know when you’ll lose them.
