Toefl essay

There is a fact that people live for their relation with other people. Especially, relationships are more and more important in the modern world. Friendship is most important among these relationships . To make friends , some people are concerned about the friends’ personalities that are similar to them , in contrast some would like to be friends with people who are opposite in their characters. In my opinion, both kinds of friends have different advantages to us.

Firstly, when we have friends who have similar natures , we could easily be sympathized to them when something is coming up. This kind of friend has the same thoughts to us so we can share the sorrow , the worrying. For instance, I have a sister who is my close friend I can talk to her everything I think without hesitation because she understands me and sometimes we have the same idea.

Secondly, when we have friends who are similar to our characters we could enhance fun , enjoy interesting things together. This kind of friends makes our life more colorful. For example some of my friends are not students but we still play together and gather at weekends to do some fun activities.

On the other hands , different friends also have some noticeable advantages . If we have such friends we can learn a lot of new and interesting things from them because the knowledge and the way they approach a problem is different from us . We can avoid some unpleasant moments when stay in these friends but there is another advantage is that we can easily know how to treat them because we know their rules as well as their reactions.

In my shoes , I have both kinds of these friends but I prefer friends who have different personality because as I said above they bring to us new knowledge and sometimes they are truly friends in difficult situations.

In summation, both kind of friends bring us advantage . Similar friends bring us the sympathetic feelings , increase the fun other while the different friends bring us knowledge , progression
