What is Friendship? In the light of Philosophy

There was a line in John Donne’s famous prose Meditation 17.

“No man is an island.”

This line truly expresses the need of a friend in a man’s life. Indeed, there is no one who can live alone on this planet. That is the reason God has made different types of relationships, for instance, friendship. Friendship is one of the best types of relationships that a person can have.

If you want to know the true meaning of friendship, you should look at its definition and think about the significance and virtues of a true friend.  Many philosophers of the bygone era such as Aristotle had talked about friendship in detail.

As indicated by Aristotle, nobody will ever pick to live without a friend. This thought from Aristotle throws light on the fact that why people with all the power and wealth are, most of all in need of a true companion.

He even included that what might be the use of those possessions when you don’t have anybody to share the joy of being prosperous. Apart from being your well-wisher, a true friend will also help you guard and protect your prosperity. Friends are more commendable to men in their hard times, in times of poverty and despair, for they can see their friends as their only place of refuge.

“Friendship is as important as life itself.” ~As quoted by Aristotle, intense and strong.

Friendship covers everyone, old and young, poor and wealthy. It covers the breath of the kinds of individuals you find within the society.

Friendship reduces the risk of destructive behavior, depression, anxiety and other common ailments that a person can suffer when he is alone.

This can be proven because in hard times you will simply look for some help from your true friend.

With this thought, you can already imagine that friendship enhances your life since it improves you as a person. In you endeavor to help or serve your friends, you grow and achieve mental strength and maturity as a human being. This makes you a better and kind individual.
