Friendship is a special boon of God given to man. You can share all types of sorrows and joys with a friend.

Good friends always give one the right kind of guidance. They are sincere and they make incredible sacrifices without any personal motive.

Good friends always stand by their friends in fair and foul weather. It may be easy to make a friend but "being a friend takes a life time". Friendship or being a friend is not a temporary phase.

It lasts for years and never breaks unless one of the two proves insincere. It is in fact a very delicate and sensitive relationship. It needs to be tackled carefully without hurting each other.

It is true that we can 't make friends who are not similar to us in some way or the other. Two persons become friends when they have common ideas, tastes, approach to things and common value systems.

It is the real and clear understanding of each other that sustains friendship. Vices like arrogance, in flatedegos and vanity can be harmful to a friendship.

If one person tries to show his superiority over the other such a relation cannot last.

They should share each other 's problems and joys and should be willing to help in the time of read.

Good friends can help to mould one 's character hence we should always be careful of the kind of people we befriend and once we have a friend we should thank God for sending him to us.

Friendship is a feeling of love and affection of one person for another. This feeling of love must be reciprocated. Otherwise friendship cannot be possible. Friendship does not exist where tastes, feelings and sentiments are not similar.

The famous essayist Bacon has warned against the friendship between a very rich person and a very poor person. Economic disparity damages friendship. Thus friendship is a feeling of affection between two likeminded persons of uniform status.

It is said that a friend in need is a friend in deed. There may be many friends at the time of prosperity. But most of them desert at the time of adversity. We can examine the sincerity of a friend during our time of hardship and trouble. Only a sincere and faithful friend remains with us at the time of our trouble. All others leave us. It is very painful when our friends turn traitors.

Money is an enemy of friendship. Everybody has an attraction for money. When lending or borrowing of money is done between two friends, there is great risk. Friendship may be affected. So it is wise for true friends to avoid monetary transaction. Vanity is another element which breaks friendship. Everybody has self-respect. When a person tries to criticise his friend, their friendship is affected. So friendship must be treated very delicately.

Very often some hypocrites pretend to be friends. They are more dangerous than avowed enemies. By telling soft words they bring enormous ruin to us. A true friend never exploits. He rather surrenders. But at present, the meaning of friendship has changed.

There are many fair-weathered friends. They terminate their friendly tie as soon as their interests are fulfilled. It is very difficult to find a true friend today. It is better to establish true friendship with either a dog or an elephant. Both these beasts will remain faithful to their human friends. Today, friendship between two persons is short-lived.

Good friends exercise good influence. They always help their friends, in distress and inspire them to walk on the right path. But evil friends ruin us completely.

True friendship is the gift of God. The English poet has once said-

"Society, friendship and love

Divinely bestowed upon man".

So, friendship is divinely bestowed upon man. Since friendship is divine it should be cherished by every individual.

Usefulness:

Friendship is no doubt useful Friends help in our difficulties. Friends save us in our dangers. Friends give us timely advice. Friends guide when we are perplexed. Friends wish our good friends like us from the core of their hearts. We feel relieved when we tell our sorrow to a friend. A true friend is our asset. Friends share our sorrow and redouble our joy. When we are in pain and agony our friends soothe us. They console us.

False Friends:

We should guard ourselves against the false friends. Because some people pose to be our friends to meet their own interest. When their interest is met, they leave us. They sometimes betray us for their own interest. They never hesitate to sabotage. Such friends are more dangerous than enemies. Because they catch us by surprise.

Besides false friends, there are another class of friends called summer friends or fair-weather friends. They remain with us when we are rich and they leave us when we are wretched. They share our fortune but not our sorrow. So, we should not depend on their friendship with us. The summer friends behave like summer birds, the summer birds come when we have summer. They fly away when the summer moves away. The summer friends, however, are not so dangerous as the false friends.

Choice of friends:

We will have to make the right choice of friends. Otherwise in the course of life we will find some friends who will desert us in our misfortune. Some friends will also turn enemies for us. Some friends will be used against us by our enemies. So, it is not easy to make a choice of friends. It warrants our conscience, consideration, induction and foresight. For  choosing a friend, we must have a deep insight into the human character. We should remember the golden saying. "A friend in need is a friend indeed.

Conclusion:

Friendship is noble. Friendship is divine. A true friend is really a gift of God. There are instances of men sacrificing their lives for their friends. So, everyone should know how to choose a friend and how to honour friendship. If we wish that our friends should be true to us, then we must be true to our friends.
