“Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.” This is a quote given from the American author and political activist Helen Keller. The wise quote sheds light to the reader that we as humans need friends and especially during tribulations in life. Loneliness is a pain that now one has the strength or power to deal with. The thought of being alone coincides with the thought of no happiness, no fun, and no love. Those who are alone with just their thoughts can damage themselves mentally because various ideas that popup in ones head when coping with the grief of loneliness.
The only factor that can destroy the void of loneliness is the people around you who are able to call you friend. Knowing that you’re not alone can be the best feeling in the world. A duty of a friend is to be the lamppost that one can lean on when tired they are there to reassure you that you’re strong although the world and its hardships might declare you weak. Friends are able to have fun with each other such as doing an activity that is equally shared. Friends have the opportunity to laugh with each other as they cerate inside jokes no other spectator would be able to understand and most importantly friends are there to love one another without any conditions.
Two is better than one in so many ways and the reason is that people feel more assured of themselves when they have backup. To face this world alone is the same as diving in blind into a pit of darkness. It’d difficult to prove what I write is very liable but friendship can’t exactly be explained in words. Henry David Thoreau once said “The language of friendship is not words but meanings.” To understand how valuable a friend is you have to know the feeling of being without one.
