Friends is not just a word. They are those people who can share your happiness and sadness. Friends are those people whenever you need them they would come up without any complaint. Friends are those people no matter you are rich or poor they won’t leave you alone. Sometimes maybe I don’t receive a call from my friends for a long time, but we both know we miss each other in our heart. And when we get together we can laugh happily like before without any strangeness. We know we don’t need to say much, because we know each other well. Friends are those people maybe when you are happy, you seldom remember them, but when you have difficulties you will first remember him or her. At least I hope my friends are like this. Friends are those people when you see them laugh, you will laugh more happily than them, but when you see them cry, you will cry more sad than them. You treat them as your family, so you can lose your temper with them, because you know they won’t blame you. Everyone should know that real friends are not who always praise you but criticize you. And at last I want to say please value your friendship, please value people who love you…
