Friendship Over Love
*Is this phrase, hits you? If not, maybe you haven’t experienced it yet. But if yes, how did you overcome with this? Did you choose between the two? Or you just did something to let them stay in your life? Okay. *First slide ppt*
*All of us had friends, right? Best friends, close friends, barkada, tropa or whatever name we call our friends. Friendship is a certain bond between two or more people. Like acquaintances. It is the word that describes your relationship with your friend. The trials and experiences you had and the moments you chose to treasure forever, right? And these experiences and memories are the factors why your friendship is going stronger. *Second slide ppt*
Love is a four letter word that until now has provided a lot of meanings and descriptions. It can be anything really, from an emotion to an affection and dedication. Love symbolizes a lot of things and is described in a lot of ways. Love represents a lot of things. It is a universal thing. But probably the most dominant understanding of love to the common is the beating of one’s heart for another person. Romantic Love.
*Who has an inspiration here? Or who has a boyfriend/girlfriend here? Okay. Good to know. If you have ever been in a relationship with someone who you are seriously attracted to, you definitely know how it feels. It’s a feeling like no other. Almost nothing seems as important to you as being with him/her, right? And you feel something different with that person. If you could, you would spend every free moment together. But because of this, you would even miss important meetings with your friends just to see him/her. And you will just think, hey! They are your friends, they will understand…...

...Friendship 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.

Wealth over Love

...Short Story Wealth Over Love Once upon a time, in the far far away kingdom of Smis, there was a beautiful princess named Elizabeth. She was always satisfied with what she has. She was never sad, and is always smiling, as her kingdom is affluent, full of wealth, power, and dignity. One late evening, she heard a small noise out from the outside of her room. It was a small tiny noise she didn’t really notice at first, but it occurred again. She wondered what it was, so she walked outside to check what it was. Once she got onto her balcony, the bright moon light hit her body. She felt lighted up. The stars are sparkling like ice cubes, with the backdrop of the sky which was glowing blue. The mysterious noise repeated again, and with more distinct of frustration. It was the small sparrow under the full moon. Elizabeth stood there and kept observing the sparrow. The sparrow kept making the frustrating sound, and never got onto the branch, and keeps flying around near the tree. Her sound was sharp, long, and seems like she’s longing for someone. She sounded like she is singing to someone to come to her. The bird seem painfully isolated comparing to the fulfilled moon with it’s company of sparkling stars. Looking at the sparrow, Elizabeth felt the dryness. Then came a male sparrow. It flew up to the tree where the other sparrow was. Elizabeth couldn’t hear anymore frustrating sound from the sparrow. The two sparrows started to fly around together for a while. Then I could...

...True Friendship Studied to this day, Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics is one of the most interesting pieces of literature I have come across. The text offers Aristotle’s views on a variety of topics including what a human being is comprised of, not in terms of physiology, but rather what differentiates us from animals for example. Most importantly, and the parts that I focused on for this assignment were the areas where Aristotle defines the various types of friendships, and the parts where Aristotle discusses moral virtue and how one can go about acquiring them. In this paper I will review Aristotle’s moral virtues in relation to the term philia, and evaluate why self-control is the most significant of the virtues required in a true friendship. Before diving in, it is first important to dissect the term philia as used by Aristotle in Nicomachean Ethics. The term philia encompasses a variety of relationships types including the relationships between: business contacts, parent and child, soldiers on the same army, the best of friends, and even the relationship to one’s significant other. Though today we would not necessarily consider all of these relationships to be friendships, the term philia did incorporate them. For the purpose of this paper, the term philia, or friendship, is about the relationship between the truest of friends. Within the scope of friendship overall, Aristotle distinguishes between three objects of philia: utility, pleasure, and good. The......

Friendship

...Friendship is a relationship of mutual affection between two or more people. Friendship is a stronger form of interpersonal bond than an association. Friendship has been studied in academic fields such as sociology, social psychology, anthropology, and philosophy. Various academic theories of friendship have been proposed, including social exchange theory, equity theory, relational dialectics, and attachment styles. A World Happiness Database study found that people with close friendships are happier. Although there are many forms of friendship, some of which may vary from place to place, certain characteristics are present in many types of friendship. Such characteristics include affection, sympathy, empathy, honesty, altruism, mutual understanding and compassion, enjoyment of each other's company, trust, and the ability to be oneself, express one's feelings, and make mistakes without fear of judgment from the friend. While there is no practical limit on what types of people can form a friendship, friends tend to share common backgrounds, occupations, or interests, and have similar demographics. THE DEVELOPMENT STAGES OF FRIENDSHIP Developmental Psychology In the typical sequence of an individual's emotional development, friendships come after parental bonding and before pair bonding. In the intervening period between the end of early childhood and the onset of full adulthood, friendships are often the most important relationships in the emotional life of the adolescent, and...

...Tittle : Friendship Introduction Life is nothing without friendship. 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 familiar. True friendship is the gift of God. Friendship is divinely bestowed upon man. Since friendship is divine, it should be cherished by every individual. Content A friend should always be caring toward you. He or she should take interest in your problem no matter how big or petty your problem is. A friend should be able to sit beside you and encourage you to cheer you up even when everyone is against you. A friend’s lovingness will also make you realize how important a friend really is. Besides that, a friend should be an honest person. An honest friend will dissipate any worries that he or she is lying towards you. A friend’s honesty will enable you to trust his or her opinion when it comes to telling you the truth about yourself. For example, an honest friend will remind you when you did something wrong and will ask you to change it while a dishonest friend will see it with a blind eye. Therefore, you will notice the improvement in yourself if you have an honest friend. Moreover, money is an enemy of friendship. Everybody has an attraction for money. There will be a huge risk when lending or borrowing of money is done between two friends. Friendship may be affected....

Friendship

...Friendship is the divine feeling or relationship between friends. Friendships developed ultimately and required to be maintained with care. Men can’t live without friend and real friendship could be a great support for one’s life. Friendship is simply a divine relationship based on feelings and understanding. It’s not ordinary social or official affair between people but a divine feelings and care based on mutual trust, affection and support. A true friendship is developed ultimately; sometimes relationship could be established for earthly benefits but that is not really considered friendship. A real friendship does not aim any worldly interests rather spiritual and based on share and care between friends. A relationship required to be reciprocal to turn into friendship. That is friendship between two people or among several people, only develops when they all loves, understands and trust one another equally. Successful friendship only established provided taste, feeling and sentiments of friends are same or common. A friendly relationship between people with strictly different outlook and view is almost impossible. A friendship turns stronger with care and maintenance. In the same way disrespect towards it fade and destroy it away. Friends must be sincere and loyal towards one another. One should not show vanity and power over his/her friends. Friends must bare a sense of equity in mind. Friendship with disparity doesn’t last very long. Real friend be always with......

Love or Friendship…

...Love or Friendship… What goes first? To me fate or God decides what goes first. People have different opinion and this is one of those subjects that are an issue. Why? Because for some people love come first and for other is friendship. Although I believe in fate and God, I think both can come at the same time. The really matter is what you choose to put first. When you meet a person it could bring thing to you love and friendship. Because when you have a partner it should also be you friend. But when you meet them for the first and you like them right away, you have to decide if it’s worth going straight to a relationship or take the time to be friends first. In that decision is where you decide which row take; failure or success. A lot of experts say that friendship goes first. They think that being friends is going to be more efficient. Efficient in the aspect of respect, trust and know each other better. And that is totally true because that’s what friends are supposed to do. But when it comes to a serious relationship those aspects are important, but not the only ones. I think that love and friendship goes by the same hand. Because in a friendship have to have love. And in a relationship have to have friendship. Is you who choose what to do first and if it fail or success. Only you have the power to do what best for you....

Friendship

...Friendship Friendships are the gift to the man kind. The relations which we get in this world are blood related. But the only relationship which does not related to blood is friendship. Friendship has many forms and shapes. It is like water. If we pour the water into a jug it takes the shape of jug. if you pour the same water into a bowl it takes the shape of bowl. Same way friendships will take a different shapes and sizes according to our heart. Friendship gives pleasure to human beings. Where there is friendship then there will not be any sorrow. When you see a child laughing you will forget your sorrows for a second, same way when you are with a friend you forget your sorrows. Friendship, like the immortality of the soul, is too good to be believed. The lover, beholding his maiden, half knows that she is not verily that which he worships; and in the golden hour of friendship, we are surprised with shades of suspicion and unbelief. We doubt that we bestow on our hero the virtues in which he shines, and afterwards worship the form to which we have ascribed this divine inhabitation. In strictness, the soul does not respect men as it respects itself. In strict science all persons underlie the same condition of an infinite remoteness. Shall we fear to cool our love by mining for the metaphysical foundation of this Elysian temple? Shall I not be as real as the things I see? If I am, I shall not fear to know them for what they are. Their essence is not less beautiful than their...

Friendship

...I just hate it that today is one of those days when I don’t have nothing to do, so the only thing left in the table is read, and since I can’t do that the other only thing I can do is write. Today I felt like writing about friendship, the real friendship, so here goes nothing: I never ever got the true meaning of friendship, until I started losing it in some way. It isn’t that I lost it completely; it’s just that my friends and I have grown apart and that kind of sucks. But before that I always wondered what friendship really is and what it really means. And now being in a different school and not with the same friends and growing apart with my friends, I asked myself that question again and I think that maybe I have found the real answer. Being in a new place with new people, new faces it is hard to fit in. And this especially when the others know each other already. So you have to start everything from the beginning , you start to tell everyone your story, your favorite things and the reasons why you like them, but they still don’t get it, they still don’t get the reason why you are who you are, and they want to change you. And then is when you start to change, because you think you aren’t good enough and that maybe that is the reason why you don’t fit in. And you change everything from yourself, and by doing this changes you start to lose your real friends, you start to lose a little bit of yourself every day, you are not the same old you, the one with big strange......

Love and Friendship

...Love vs Friendship What is the difference between friendship and love? This question has always been in the minds of people for centuries. Though a definite answer cannot be given for this question, one can come across some differences between the two. Love and friendship are so much related, that one cannot find any difference between the two. When love can be termed as a sacrifice, friendship can be termed as a trust. Love is a feeling that is uncontrollable, and a feeling which one has for another person. On the other hand, friendship is quite different from love in this aspect. Love is a feeling between two individuals, and only two persons are involved. On the contrary, friendship involves more individuals. One can have many friends, but a person can only have one person to love. In love, there is great attachment for the other. Most of the time an individual gets hurt if his loved one is pained or hurt. This attachment may not be seen in friendship. Regarding the emotions, individuals in love will experience a faster heartbeat when they meet. This is not so when friends meet. There is no way that one will lie awake and think of his friends for a whole night, but lovers will have sleepless nights, and dream about their lovers. The lovers even sleep and wake up with the thoughts of his or her lover. Another difference that can be seen, is that in love, some physical element is also involved between individuals. On the other hand, there is no such......

Friendship

...“Friendship” There is a great deal of valuable things to learn and experience in life, but friendship to me is one of the most important. To go your whole life without experiencing a true friendship, is not giving yourself the best gift that God is offering you. If you were to ask me what friendship is, I would tell you that friendship is the most wonderful relationship that anyone can have. A true friend is a person who offers all of their love and respect and will never leave or betray you. The definition of friends can be described as: “an intimate associate, reliable, one who is not an enemy or foe, an ally, etc” (Webster’s, pg. 540). But friendship is much more than that definition it is a way of life. Let me begin to explain a little further; Every friendship is different but every true friendship should at least have one common factor, Trust. Trust is an issue that every friendship must deal with at some point in time. If that trust is broken the relationship can be damaged forever. Trust is an unwritten rule between friends and is defined as the “firm belief or confidence in the honesty, integrity, reliability, justice, of another person.” (Webster’s, pg. 1436) My friends are loyal and very trustworthy they stick by me through the good times and bad times. My friends would never gossip behind my back, spilling intimate details of my life that I’ve shared with them in confidence. I’m confident that my friends would try to defend me and praise me under......
