It is universally known that friendship is one of the eternal themes in the literature of all languages. This is because human beings were born to need the warmth and laughter of friends. However it is impossible for us to make friends with everybody. We have to choose true friends. Some of us like similar friends, while others different friends. Personally, I prefer both.
It goes without saying that having similar friends has many advantages. We can feel a sense of strength when we have a group of old friends who would share our sufferings and happiness. Moreover, old friends always know how to maintain mutual trust and how to avoid potential friction. I always feel delighted when I meet an old friend after a long departure. Immediately, hearty laughter fills the atmosphere.
Nevertheless I believe that a mixture of friends is equalty advantageous. In the first place, frequent contact with different friends broadens my world outlook. For instance, I have found, it a real treasure to have so many friends on the campus who often help, me reinforce my beliefs. Secondly, I have found that different friends cannot only lead to new adventures but alse show me new avenues in life. Thirdly, they can help me with whatever difficulties I encounter in life.
To conclude, I prefer to have both types of friends and as many as possible. Of course, I will not forget friends wisely.
