Friendship through “Friends”


By Trent Miles


So no one told you life was gonna be this way

Your job's a joke, you're broke, your love life's D.O.A

It's like you're always stuck in second gear

When it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year , but

A friend is somebody hard to discover. A friend is somebody you can simply depend on when difficulties are out of hand. A decent friend is there when you are battling. For instance, when a kid makes you extremely upset, a decent companion strolls you through it and offers comfort in times of dire need. As Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry) said in season 2 episode 5, “A great friend is somebody who is dependable.” Friends are always here to lift you up in words of encouragement. But there are likewise terrible friends; the individuals who claim to mind and afterward pivot tattling. Great and terrible companions are surrounding you engaged with your regular day to day existence. To discover great companions, you should search for such attributes as being thoughtful, reliable, faithful and tried and true.

A good friend must be compassionate because being compassionate is when they look out for you no matter what! Friends look out for you even when you are arguing. A friend understands that you may not always get along but you should always try and be there for them and look out for them. Although this can be difficult at times, it proves how kind and loving you are. Another part of being kind is listening to one and another. Sometimes we don't care about what our friends have to say, but listening is really important. Listening shows that you value their friendship. Some friends only talk about themselves and never listen to your problems; that is not a good friend. Listening to each other helps you learn about the person as it shows character and tells that person you can count on them.

The t.v. show “Friends” has shown us that friendship will never die. For example, the friendship between Monica and Rachel: two different people who have so many differences but yet complement each other. It is a normal friendship between any two girls who claim that they are going to be the best of friends. The manner in which they see one another and dependably return to one another and cherish each other is the means by which I believe I am with my closest companion. The battles, yet the make ups, the enjoyment of living respectively, et cetera are extremely practical and is something one would comprehend on the off chance that one had a closest friend.

But the best friendship, is between Chandler and Joey. They have been through the thick and thin, the ups and downs and positives and negatives. But in the end, they always find a way to connect with each other. The best kind of relationship is with your roommate, and all through the 10 seasons of “Friends”, it was really demonstrated. Thank you “Friends” for showing America what true friendship is about.

I'll be there for you

When the rain starts to pour

I'll be there for you

Like I've been there before

I'll be there for you

'Cause you're there for me too
