The Importance of Having Good Friends

Good morning my friends.

Good morning Miss Widdy, as my respected teacher.

As we have gathered here at this great occasion, I’m, Widya Cahyaningrum, would like to present to you a little speech about the importance of having good friends.

Have you ever heard that having good friends may help your life last longer? Since we were child, we were familiar with having friends because friends became an important thing for ourselves. A research which followed nearly 1,500 older people for 10 years said that those who had a large network of friends outlived those with fewer friends by more than 20%. So everybody needs friends!

As a social human, we cannot live with another people and it is very important to have friends that we choose to spend time or do activities. So, when it comes to choosing our friends, there is always two sides springs up which are the good friends and the “good” friends. We can really know how good or bad a person if we become their friends.

The first thing that we need to know, good friends always care enough about us and always support us. They might say “you’re wrong” if we do the bad things and they will appreciate us when we do the good things. They believe that we have something wonderful and we can attain our dreams. They support and help us to chase away our doubt and find the success way to reach our goals.

It also happens when we are in the lowest condition. The good friends are always there for us, they are always supporting us in every way possible to help us find the solution. When we are facing a bad condition in our lives, those good friends come forward to help us overcome the difficulties. They will not let us face them alone.

Beside the good friends who always support us, the trustworthy one is the good thing too that good friends may have. We absolutely do not want to have a blabbermouth as a friend. We do have certain secrets that can only be shared with our friends only, right? And the good friends would never betray the trust that we have in them. With no doubts, the good friends are not would never spread out our secrets to another people.

So, enough for a little speech that I can say, no more or less as well as mistakes that I said either intentionally or not, I really apologize. Thanks for your kind attention!
