Choosing Friends at School

A friend is someone who is very close to us. Friendship occurs as a result of likeness.

During our first days at school, we have no friends. We are just individuals from different homes who have been brought together to learn. Eventually, we are to choose some of our class mate or school mate to become our friends. Human being has been created by God in way that we can’t live in isolation. On a daily basis, we need to interact with our fellow mates to discuss, learn and impact knowledge. Friends are inevitable in the journey of life. They can either make you or mar you.

Reasons/Factors for the Choice of Friends

At most times, we choose friends because of the same:

(i) age group.

(ii) common interest or school clubs.

(iii) religion.

(iv) intelligence level.

(v) good behavior, etc.

At times, our friendship becomes a lifelong relationship (family-friends).
