Friends are like chocolate syrup on your vanilla ice-cream, they make life beautiful; friends are like candles in a blackout night, they give you hope when you are in a midst of hardship. “ A friend in need is a friend indeed”, this idiom has clearly illustrated the importance of friendship in our lives. There are many benefits of having good friends.

The benefits of having a good friend include having someone to talk freely and secretly about any problem one may be having. The benefits of having a good friend to talk to in the above sense also mean that it is having someone to lean on and to reach out to for support. A good friend is someone whom one is likely to share common interests and favourite times. Sharing activities such as these with a good friend can alone give great pleasure. Your good friend will also help you extend your circle of friends as you may not know everyone whom your friend knows. It will be lots of fun to meet new people who may one day become good friends of yours too.

Secondly, we must learn not to gossip about our friends. It is because gossiping is not good. It can cause a fight and it can change friendship into enemies. That is why we must be a trustworthy friend. It will increase the trust of our friends towards our friendship.
