My Life Of Becoming A Friend

- It 's always been hard for me to make really close friends. I 've always been mature for my age and I could never really relate to my peers. And my family moved a lot due to my mom 's job so any friends I did make, I didn 't keep. So for a long time I had no friends and I just couldn 't understand why. Then I had an epiphany. No one wanted to be close friends because they couldn 't keep up with me. I am so scatter brained it 's ridiculous. Add that with my advanced maturity and my crazy big ambitions, well who could blame everyone....   [tags: Friendship, Love, Keeping up with the Joneses]

My Mother And My Friend

- Not too long ago, I was sitting in the front porch of my friend’s house with both the friend and his father. We had just finished a day of a work for my friend’s Eagle Scout Project and sat down to chat. While I was sitting silently, my friend and his dad chattered away as if I did not exist. They insulted each other and even told some dirty jokes occasionally. I was able to smile just by listening. This was not a scene that I would see in my household. My mother and I never reached this point of familiarity....   [tags: Family, Mother, Father, Parent]

My Friend Is A Friend

- Dear, Frances O’Roark Dowell, To me, a friend means passion. A friend means forever existing love. A friend means many years of heartfelt times, but also grieving moments. When you just need that shoulder to cry on. Friends, or even more specifically, best friends, share a bond that can never be compared to anything else. It might twist. It might bend. It sometimes might even break, but that is when you separate the real friends, from the fake. A friendship is not a meaning, but a message, that only they can understand....   [tags: Friendship, Love, Interpersonal relationship]

Eulogy for Friend

- Eulogy for Friend Three days ago I was working on a lecture dealing with a prominent figure on the French literary scene who happens to be a Sephardic Jew. He pictures the Jew as essentially a wounded man, one racked by his Jewishness. The world for him is a desert, and God is enwrapped in silence. For him the keynote is exile, the stuff of his writing a kind of brave despair. The news of Hays's death broke into my thoughts on this, and it occurred to me that his philosophy of life could be expressed by reversing this writer's terms....   [tags: Eulogies Eulogy]
