5 Reasons My Friends Are Important

Updated on November 9, 2017


My Ebook Making Friends Made Easy... is now available on amazon.


I have also made a website dedicated to making friends. Please join us at

The definition of Friendship is another hub I wrote as a prequel to this article. You can check it out here if you like. THE FRIENDSHIP DEFINITION

Friends Are Important

When we think of influences, people we like to be around, or people we like to kick ( lightly), we usually think of our friends.

The ones that slowly but surely drag us under a bus at some point or another. The ones that help us even when its uncalled for, or very called for.

In everyday life sometimes we need someone to lean on, or learn from. While watching others make mistakes is a lot of fun, sometimes it is necessary.

If you thought it was necessary to jump that car on a tricycle being pulled by a mustang going 50 over a homemade ramp...good.

Your friends will let you know how awesome it will look, and the exact spot you will land...on your face. This is what friends are for and more. I'd like to break down my 5 reasons friends are important.


5. True Friends Never Leave..You Alone

Yes, with friends you are never alone. I mean "never" alone. This is one crucial reason why friends are important to me. From the one who is always trying to get you off your couch, right down to the one keeping you there. In the our world, we need friends in order to be ourselves.

If you have a mohawk, roughly the size of a house, then there is a friend for you. If you constantly make fun of people for no other reason then entertainment, then there is a friend for you too. If you have severe acne, and by the way I used to till I started using this..Exposed Acne Treatment...there is a friend for you.

They are willing to except you no matter what you look like. Yes, even you reading this...Yea I see you.

4. Best Friends Help

That's right, help. Maybe this should have been called 5 reasons good friends are important, but i digress. Everyone needs someones help at some point. Friends proved a great opportunity for this. Anything from moving to helping in a fighting situation. Legally, of course.

They are always just a phone call away, and best friends are already there. When we need someone to do something for us, it is good to have someone you can count on to help.

Come on, do you trust your pets to a stranger. No, I didn't think so. If you need to find a real friend, important steps must be taken. Let them watch your house and see if you are missing a toaster. If you are, you have a best friend for life...Yes best friend because they didn't steal your toaster.

Note**I don't not condone stealing toasters. It doesn't mean I would not help if you needed me to. I am just saying.

Friends With Benefits.. That Came Out Wrong

3. Friend Facts : Advice will always be given even if its not wanted.

So, first off I would like to say my friends advice usually isn't that great. Usually though, it is very different from what I was thinking, but they are always there to give it.

Sometimes, it is better to have another view on life, or just your current situation.

That way maybe you can see that that pastel and teal futon you thought was super cool, is not art, or cool, or anything close to being necessary.

You don't even have your own place sorry.

The best idea is to trust your own instincts, but it is great to have another vantage point. Your friends see things from a different side.

Whether it is the outside of a relationship, or that "great job" you did on your new project. They will be sure to inform you of quality choices.

2. Motivational Quotes About Friendship

There are people in your life, that will give you good ideas about what to do when your bored. Friends are the ones that talk you into it.

I thought it was a bad idea to jump of my trailer holding a plastic trash bag like a parachute. Guess who didn't think that was a bad idea. Yes, folks with a little "encouragement" I went right off holding on tight. Oh, also I forgot to mention, trash bags are not parachutes. I wasn't hurt, but I was motivated.

Friends have learned exactly what to say to get you fired up and on your way to slamming into something really fast. "You'll be fine you're wearing a helmet."

If you happen to not be okay, please check youtube for analysis on what you did wrong. It is full of facts and quality videos, to put you on your way to a hospital, enjoy.

1. inspirational quotes about friends

Friends can guide us where we need to go. They can show us what we should or shouldn't do. Friends can inspire our lives, and lead us to great things. They can be our motivation, help, or idea enthusiast.

The encouragement needed to get going may take two friends. We need friends, to learn and grow as people. Inspiration is all around us, but nothing will influence us more than friends.

From the little pat on the back, to the circumstances of everyday life. Challenges and expectation, are always guided by friends, and bad judgement. We come together when we need to, but you can only count on strangers so far.

Everyone needs friends,because friends are important. If you want to get the most out of life, find a friend, they will be there every step of the way.

We are all unique, different, and in some cases trying to learn telekinesis. We are the ones who control our lives, but someone needs to be by your side.

In this world plagued with violence and bad grammar. Friends are here to help with the violence part. NO ONE understands grammar.

We all blend together in jumbled mess of a world, to come together as a unit. So next time your friend wants you to jump through a flaming hope into a pool full of jello. You say yes, then throw them through it. Ahh team work.

Pen Pals

Have you tried having pen pals?

Having pen pals is a good place to start to if you can not make friends easy. This is a chance for you to meet someone without being face to face.

Sites for pen pals are all over the internet, I use some of them for learning different languages. Most of these don't charge anything.

It is just a chance for you to get out there and meet new people, without getting out there and meeting new people.

I am not saying you need to do this, but it is easier to me. There are a lot of people just like us out there trying to make friends to.

There are many reasons to have friends, but one of the most important is, because you need them, anyone who says they don't is lying.

Which one describes you?

      Josh, you forgot about the buddy system. If you and your buddy are surrounded by a bunch of alligators, use the buddy system, throw your buddy in first too see if their hungry :) Just kidding.

      Friends are very important, and you can never have too many, voted up!
