I consider my friends my idols

My role model is not just one person but all those who have taught me, what may probably be the most important aspect in life —friendship.

This relationship is a feeling of love and affection for one another. Age, gender, geography or class cannot be a restriction on this beautiful bond.

It has no boundaries, no limits.

Besides those that I go to school with or play with in my locality, I also count my parents, brothers and sisters as my friends because they, in their own ways, teach me how share, care and spread happiness.

It is said that a friend in need is a friend indeed. There may be many friends at the time of prosperity, but most of them desert you at the time of adversity.

We can examine the sincerity of a friend during our time of hardship and trouble. Only a sincere and true friend remains with us in difficult times but a fair-weathered friend leaves us. It is painful when our friends abandon us during our time of crisis.

A true friend never exploits, rather, surrenders. They are always there by our side in times of need, cheering us up and during good and happy times, smiling and celebrating with us.

Good friends exercise good influence. They always help their friends in distress and inspire them to walk on the right path. Friendship is divine and meaningful when it is selfless and devoted. For all this, my friends are the biggest inspiration in life.
