Friendships!! They change our lives!!

This is a paper that i had to write for school about friendship! The 3rd paragraph is my own original defenition, that i made up that i truley feel describes freindship, Enjoy and feel free to leave a comment!


Friendship is such a powerful thing and it’s so key to life. Friendships can change your life either for the good or for the bad. Friends come into your life and they can stay for a long time or stay for the momentary time that they need to be there. Each friend comes bringing something into your life and getting something from you. Friends impact your life and leave footprints on your heart. They are the people who change your life and make you a better person!

UCLA did a study about the friendship between women and how they help fill the gaps that are there. They are the people to talk to when your life feels crazy and you don’t know what do. We go through ups and downs daily in our life and our friends are the ones that are there to pick us up. We tend to be stressed out all the time and when you’re stressed who is the first person you call? You call your best friend, so that you can talk and vent.

Friends are the people who when you want to talk non-stop, they will listen. When you are so irritated and you want to scream, they will hold the phone away and plug their ears and say “Go.” They are the ones who will lend you their shoulder to cry on. Their the person, who if you get your heart broke, they want to beat the guy up. Friends are the ones who make you laugh till you cry and pee. And most importantly friends are the ones who love you no matter what.

Dr. Klien did a study and discovered that when a women gives birth and bonds with a child. Or spends time caring for children Oxytocin is released, which is a natural hormone of joy and excitement. In her discoveries she realized that when friends get together Oxytocin is released, which is such a good thing. While with friends your usually happy and smiling, which is just amazing!

Studies have showed that women who have friends and it doesn’t have to be a lot, just close friends. Have a lower blood pressure level and tend to be healthier overall. Having friends makes you happier and when you’re happier you tend to live longer. People say that friendships affect your life, and that is so true!

So friends can bring you down or up, sometimes those rare friends come along that don’t really know how to be a good friend, so they bring you down and that relationship doesn’t last long. But we have the rare opportunity to have and meet those friends that God truly sends are way to bless us and change our lives for the better. You can tell who your real friends are compared to those who will not last very long. But from every friendship we give and take and learn how to be a better friend to someone else who needs it. True friends teach us things and shape us into becoming who we will be forever. True friendship will last through the thick and thin!
