Write a short essay Friendship divides our sorrows and multiplies our joys

I’m Dasha and here is what I think about friendship.

People are social creatures. The live and survive better when they are part of a community. Our friendships tend to be very intentional in their ability to move us forward in life. Our successes are sweeter when celebrated with friends and family. We feel much better when we experience sadness, disappointment and grief in the company of others than going it alone.

Family and friends are important people in our life. I really appreciate friendship. Friendship divides our sorrows and multiplies our joys. That’s absolutely right, I agree with that.
When you are upset and want to talk about it with someone, your friend can be a good shoulder to cry on . You can share your sadness with your friend. The proverb says that a friend in need is a friend indeed. I couldn’t agree more because a good friend is always ready to give you a helping hand when you need. It’s really cool when he or she listens to you and never leaves in trouble. In our life there are a lot of problems and it’s normal when you don’t know what to do . You can ask your best friend because he/she is always straight with you and helps decide what to do in a difficult situation . Sometimes it is simply enough to have a trustworthy person who is a good shoulder to cry on and talk to a friend is the best therapy.

Our joys are multiplied when shared with friends. You are always happy with your friend. Your friend and you have fun together. Watching films, going to cafes, listening to music, doing shopping, talking about interests, hobbies and problems, hanging out. So you can never feel bored and have a good laugh. A real friend always shows sincere joy for your success in studying, good academic results, in your small and big achievements and is never jealous to your victories and experience.

If you have a good friend, you are a really happy and lucky person. There are a lot people who don’t have friends and they can’t share their sadness or happiness. So you need to appreciate friendship as a precious gift.
