Friendship is having a good relationship with someone, who we call a friend. People in a friendship have respect and affection for each other. A friendship is different from a romantic relationship; friends do not necessarily love each other romantically.
A friend is a person that someone likes or knows. People who are friends talk to each other and spend time together. They also help each other when they are in trouble or are hurt. Friends are people that can be looked up to and trusted. Sometimes people can't tell their secrets to their parents so they tell it to their friends. Usually friends have similar interests. A friend is one who admires a person's skill and helps or encourages them to make the right choices.
The strength of the bond of friendship between two people can vary. If the bond is very strong, they are called best friends. This can usually be achieved by possessing the elements of friendship, by being kind, generous, loyal, honest and by having fun. With these qualities you can truly enjoy the bliss of friendship. There are expectations, demands and complaints in friendship too. Some people say these should not be there in friendship. But two people interact in this world only when there are expectations. Friends can help you materialistically and morally. But if they don't match with your expectations, it doesn't mean you will break the friendship. This is what is different in friendship as compared to love relationship between two couples. Its all about understanding, realizing and helping whenever possible. Friendship is both good and necessary. Man cannot live all alone. He is a social being. He needs someone to share his joys and sorrows. Generally, it is only the people of the same age, character and background, mentality, etc., who can understand him and understand his problems. Friends are needed for support and for sharing. Friendship is an elixir which is essential for a happy life.
