Comment on the following statement:
|You can have only one true friend. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
In my opinion a person can have a lot of real friends. First of all, true friend is not a special number, it is more a principle, an ability to sacrifice himself for the sake of a friend. For example, a true friend is always ready to help when their friend is in times of trouble. There is a saying, “a friend in need is a friend indeed”. Secondly, a true friend can tell a person the truth no matter how hard it might sound.
At the same time there are people who say that there can be only one real friend. A person cannot be open to many people and share with them all his or her thoughts and ideas, being fully sincere with them.
I do not agree with the opinion mentioned above. There are not a prescribed number of friends for a person. This number depends on a person, his or her character, personal preferences and many other individual things.
In conclusion, I would like to say there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight a person can have only one real friend, but in actual fact there can be many. Thus, I strongly believe people can have not only one true friend.
