Friendship is like the sweetness of a cold bite of vanilla ice cream on a hot summer day. Friendship is one of the most important things for me. My friends are my curtain that veils me from the world. The safety I feel when I am with my friends is, to put it in the most simple of terms, the amount of safety someone feels when they put their money in a vault to protect it from being stolen. When we are together, our friendship veils us from the rest of the world.

One example is on a Saturday morning. My friends and I decide to go to breakfast together. We all meet up by my house and decide to go to Denny’s. Once we get to Denny’s, we see that it is full, however we ignore the rest of the people and begin our wild activities as we sit together. One of them starts throwing ripped pieces of napkins at the rest of us. Another one of my friends’ starts to yell and laugh loudly. By this time a few people have noticed us and are staring. This, nonetheless doesn’t bother us as we sit together and enjoy our time together.

Another example of my feeling of security while being with my friends is when we meet together at our mosque. We hang out together. We play basketball together and make jokes. We might play for be together for two hours, but it only feels like 20 minutes.

My friends are my bodyguards when I am in trouble. They will help me and stand by my side when I need them to. I feel the same way about my friends as they do about me. I know I will be safe when I am with them.

Friendship is a very important aspect in my life. My life wouldn’t be as positive as it is today. One of the main reasons why I am why I am is because of my friends. I am forever grateful for my friends for being there for me and keeping me safe. Having the friends that I do makes it even more important to keep my friendship strong.

  1. This blog post has made me realize the importance of having a close knit group of friends that you can rely on and trust. I think that the most important thing is that we have an enjoyable time with our friends while always having each others’ backs even if there is an argument or fight or anything amongst members of the group. Unity is key to having a successful and happy relationship of any kind.


  2. Having great friends is such an important part of life. In high school, it can be pretty rare to find friends that you feel extremely safe and comfortable around all the time, so like you said, keep those relationships strong. Friends are people that I share and communicate with the most and I don’t know how I would get through everyday life without them. Thanks for reminding me how great my friends are! 🙂
