In time of wars, most can acknowledge the fact that nobody is safe and anything can change in a matter of seconds due to the aftermath of war and its contribution to humanity. Throughout history, war has taken many lives of soldiers, created debts for the government, and have caused destruction to countries and also to all kind of relationships. In other words, war can impact many relationships by separating families apart, creating a gap in friendship, making society fall into depression, and making oneself behaving differently. Out of all these relationships, war creates the biggest impact on friendship due to the fact that it disconnect friends from each other, as well as ending the lives of many companions. Nevertheless, many can disagree
Dinitia and I stayed in the pool all morning, splashing, practicing the backstroke and the butterfly. She flailed around in the water almost as much as I did. We stood on our hands and stuck our legs out of the water, did underwater twists, and played Marco Polo and chicken with the other kids. We climbed out to do cannonballs and watermelons off the side, making bug geyserlike splashes intended to drench as many people sitting poolside as possible. The blue water sparkled and churned white with foam (191).
We have many people that we say are our friends and some we consider to be our as best friends. Those so called best friends are the ones we can count with our fingers, which then turns out to not be a lot. However, in my experience we can’t always expect good outcomes from either one of them. We are better off not trusting anyone but yourself, since your best friends are the ones that end up hurting you the most. However, I didn’t lose a friend, I just realized I never had one. In every friendship, we are risking the chance of being betrayed, we need to be careful how much trust we give.
Last year, a very close friend of mine and I lost contact. Anything that we may have shared before seemed to disappear and we are now no longer friends. To be completely honest, it sucked at first. It was one of the most difficult things I had to go through because this person was like a sibling to me. But it has been a year and I have had plenty of time to reflect. In this reflection, I have realized that even though it was hard, it was good for me. It was something that needed to happen, so I could move on and grow up and start a new chapter. I have learned so much more about myself and what I want and how I want to live my life than I ever could have when being friends with this person. And I am here to tell you that in every crappy situation you experience in life, something good will come out of it. It is
Losing two of my best friends within six months of each other was one of the hardest things I have had to do. They were a major part of my life for almost 17 years, before they left. Through this experience, I learned to be an example of kindness, hard work, and diligence for those around me.
Friendships are fragile because they can shatter quickly, much like glass. Even if you spent months building them up they can still come crumbling down in minutes, and sometimes you realize that the reason it broke wasn’t worth it at all. A four-hour layover in the Atlanta airport is where my story unfolded. Unfortunately, even though it is basically impossible to end years of friendship in such a short time, I can confirm that it is, in fact, possible.
Are you wondering what I learned. I now know it's what you do that makes you remember I will always remember her because she is special, she was my best friend and even now that she's gone I can still look back and still laugh and still cry. Love is like air, you can feel it, but it's always there even when the person, animal, or thing isn’t there anymore. They still bring you
“Okay sissy, don't cry,” she pleaded. I knew the day was coming up, but I tried not to think about it. She was my absolute best friend and I could not imagine living 1,300 miles away.
Standing atop the ledge of the Golden Gate Bridge is so intimidating. I've stood in this spot countless times, however, I've always wussed out of actually doing the unthinkable. With no one to help this uninteresting high schooler out, this girl doesn’t even have a single friend in this new place. Because all of my technology has been broken in someway, I've not had a chance to talk to my old friends, but it's not like I had numerous friends in my old place. Nevertheless, the one friend I thought I had was Corrine, but she moved on and found other friends after I moved away. So much for best friends forever.
Do you have friends? Most likely, you answered yes, but I’m asking do you have “true friends”? I use quotes because my understanding of the general populous concludes me to believe people don’t have real honest, genuine, friends. These superficial friendships I speak of lead to a disastrous chaos, betrayal, and most importantly: a broken heart. Friends are those who look out for each other, those who will abort any personal objective for you at the drop of a hat. These aspects show a real friend, these aspects describe Rachel Stephenson.
A significant event in our friendship was when we decided to join the rugby team. Trying out for any team, in any grade is nerve-wracking. But trying out for rugby in grade nine is on a whole different level. Rugby was not my first high school sport that I was signing up for, but it was Alison’s. We were both so nervous just to try out, let alone the contact aspect of the sport. We probably told each other that we were not going to go to the try out about five times because we were scared about the sport and trying out for a team as a grade nine. However we both forced each other into going to the tryouts, and we decided that if we did not like the sport then we would
It was 12 o'clock at night and for the first time it was quiet, other than police sirens and cars honking at each other it was quiet. I was trying to go to sleep but I couldn’t. So I headed downstairs and grabbed a warm glass of milk to help me sleep. That didn’t do any good so I just went to my computer to see what my friends were doing. (if they were online) So I opened up skype and began to call my friends. Surprisingly they were online.
