we all know a story similar to this: two men and a bear. in the forest, when a bear attacked them, the thinner man quickly climbed up to the top of a tree and forgot his promise to the fatter guy, who could not climb the tree, about helping each other when in danger. luckily, the fatter man saved himself. the fatter mat was very disappointed, and when they got together again, he said to the thinner man, you are not my real friend. only a friend in need is a friend indeed. this is a very familiar story. it illustrates to us what a friend should be like. it is, however, just a story.
i would like to tell you something about myself, my true feel-ings. when i was in senior one, i had great difficulty in learning science subjects. i was unable to understand the teacher and 1 could not do the eercises or the homework. i believed that i was stupid and could not learn anything. the sky was gray and the grass was yellow those days. everything was a mess in my brain. my classmate, a good student, whom i only considered as one of the classmates before, came to me with a smile. she told me that if i needed help, she would like to help me. as she was also very busy with her studies,i asked myself, could she help me? sev-eral days later, i knew the answer. yes, she could. she did as much as she could. she made time every day to help me solve the problems and showed me many good ways to study science. her patience and earnest nature touched me deeply. i worked very hard and my progress was reflected in my eamination result. i appreciated her help very much and wanted to thank her. when i looked at her, once again she smiled at me with an encouraging and congratulatory look. at that moment i understood that a true friend should be like this.
nowadays, it seems that there are many ways of epressing friendship. our lives are generally better. people now have more time to consider and be more concerned about their lives. money, which is considered by many to be of prime importance, makes it difficult to find true friendship. is friendship only greeting each other on meeting? is friendship only drinking and eating together? is friendship only lending money to each other? no, a friend should be a person you trust and understand. a friend should be a person who tastes happiness and bitterness with you. a friend should be a person who can give you confidence and encouragement.
though everything has changed, and friendship has scores of definitions, i still believe, and i will believe forever that a friend in need is a friend indeed.
