Earlier we use to say,“A friend in need,is a friend indeed.”.But nowadays the saying is changed to,”One with a greed and a need,is a friend indeed.”Honesty,loyalty,trust,credence,respect which were the fundamentals to a Friendship are now replaced by betrayal,immorality,treachery,stabbing in the back etc.
Nowadays teenagers make friends just for the sake of their needs.They’ll stab in the back,simultaneously being nice in face.And by this behaviour they end up making themselves tagged as HYPO-CRITES. For eg: they’ll befriend you for a status symbol,for use of your delights that they can’t afford to buy,for making a new relation with your mutual friend upon whom they have crush on.By their this kinda behaviours they are not only infringing the moral values,they are also taking the curse of the one’s, whom they have hurt.Adding to it,they are also destroying their image as well as their parents,as the lesson of right and wrong are taught by them.
I acknowledged that here also lies the mistake of one who picks up the friend.One should deliberately cultivate friendship with men of character because it is very bitter and painful to cut off connections later, on account of bad blood between friends. True friendship lasts till death and does not fluctuate from time to time.
“Friendship marks a life even more deeply than love. Love risks degenerating into obsession, friendship is never anything but sharing.” ―ELIE WIESEL
