It is important to have friends everyone does not prefer to be

alone. There are many reasons you need to have friends. Some people

prefer to be alone they need friends also. Many reasons for friends can

help you succeed in life. Having friends can help you develop character,

help you succeed in life, and they may help you when you are having


My first reason that you need to have friends is to help you

succeed in life. Having friends can motivate you to achieve your goals. If

you have plans or goals having friends pushes you to meet your goals

and plans. For example, one of my goals was to graduate from high

school and I graduated. Most of the people that were my friends stayed

in school and they wanted to graduate also. My friends in high school

graduated also. I motivate them and they motivate me also.

When they

were having a hard time I persuaded them to keep trying and graduate

also. They knew they didn't want to quit and with my help they did well.

When I talked to them they had other goals too but it seemed like it was

mostly to graduate.

Another reason you need to have friends is to help you develop

character. One way you can develop character by having friends is

having a relationship. That is what having friends means. They can

build character by motivating you and spending time with them. When

you spend time with them over a time you will develop a relationship

with them. Hanging out with them can be a good thing also. For

example, my friend help me develop character also. Spending time with

them and hanging out with them helped me achieve my goals. That is

another reason why is important to have friends.

A third reason a friend is needed is to help talk to you when you

are having problems. Without friends your problems may not get

solved. They are supposed to be there for you and help you see your way

through them. Alone people often see themselves dealing with there

problems by themselves, and they become angry at themselves and

others. Hanging out with them helps relieve some stress. If you don't

have any friends, in my opinion it seems its harder to relieve stress.

Those were some of the reasons why I prefer you should have

friends. Those reasons of why I prefer are to help you succeed in life,

develop character, and you need them to help you and see your way

through when you are having problems.
