一生中应该有的八种类型的朋友

With a loyal best friend, a fearless adventurer, a brutally honest confidant, a wise mentor, a friend from a different culture, a polar opposite, a friendly neighbor, and a work pal in your life, you’re bound to live a long and happy life! 一生中,有一个忠实的最好的朋友、一个无所畏惧的冒险者、一位极其诚实的知己、一位睿智的导师、一个来自不同文化的朋友、一个完全对立的朋友、一个友好的邻居以及一个工作伙伴,你必将活得长久而快乐。
    一生中应该有的八种类型的朋友
    Did you know that people without friends are more likely to die an early death?
    你知道吗?没有朋友的人往往死的早。
    It’s true. Just ask science.
    这是真的。不信,可以向科学求证。
    To up your chances of living a long, happy life, having a bunch of fair-weather buddies won’t do the trick. You need a diverse, well-rounded entourage that will stick with you through thick and thin. The following eight types of friends are just what you need to keep the doctor away.
    要想生活得长久幸福,一群不能共患难的朋友是不能助你达成目的的。你需要的是一群性格各异、面面俱到,可以与你同甘苦共患难的朋友。接下来要说的八种类型的朋友正是这一类。
    1. A Loyal Best Friend
    1.一个忠实的最好的朋友
    Sometimes a loyal best friend is the only thing you need to stay sane. Everyone needs a non-judgmental friend who will support them no matter what. This is the kind of friend who lets you be a hot mess and knows all of your deepest and darkest secrets, but still loves you all the same.
    有时一个忠实的最好的朋友可以是使你保持清醒的唯一原因。每个人都需要一个无论在任何情况下都无私支持自己的朋友。这样的朋友可以放任你的一团糟,也知道你所有的最深处和最黑暗的秘密,但仍然一直爱着你。
    2. A Fearless Adventurer
    2.一个无所畏惧的冒险者
    We live in a big world where there are so many places to see, people to meet, and experiences to be had, yet so many of us are stuck in our own routines and forget to, well, live. We all need an adventurous friend who will pull us out of our shells and introduce us to new ideas, cultures, philosophies, and activities.
    我们生活在一个宏大的世界里,可以看许多风景,遇到各色人,拥有丰富多彩的经历。然而,我们大部分人都深陷在自己的琐事里,忘记如何好好地生活。我们都需要一个冒险的朋友,将自己从壳里拖出来并向我们介绍新想法、文化、哲学和活动。
    3. A Brutally Honest Confidant
    3.一个极其诚实的知己
    There’s certain situations in life where we need to hear the harsh truth. That’s what the brutally honest confidant is for. If you’re in a rocky relationship and everyone’s telling you that it’s perfectly normal that you’re back with that special someone for the 8th time in the last 2 years, the brutally honest confidant is there to yank your rose-colored glasses off and tell you, “Enough. Stop with all that break-up-and-get-back-together drama. You deserve better.” Friends are supposed to be honest with each other. If you find someone who is brutally honest with you (in a constructive way), then hold on to this person! People like that are hard to come by these days.
    在生活中,有些特定的场合,我们需要知道残酷的真相。这时我们正需要这样一个极其诚实的知己。在一段摇摆不定的恋爱关系中,每个人都对你说情人间难免有摩擦,你应该再次回到那个人身边,而这已是过去两年里第八次出现。此时那个极其诚实的知己则会摘掉你乐观的眼镜,对你说,“够了!不要再上演那种分分合合的戏码了。你值得更好的人”。朋友之间应该相互坦诚。如果你发现某个人对你极其诚实,那么就紧紧抓住这个人。在这个时代,像这样的人已不多了。
    4. A Wise Mentor
    4.一位睿智的导师
    Jesse Jackson once said, “Never look down on someone unless you’re helping them up.” If you have someone smart, inspiring, and admirable in your life who practices this philosophy, you’re extremely lucky. We all need a friend who inspires us to be better people without making us feel inadequate. Plus, being around such a person will challenge us to better ourselves every day.
    杰西杰克逊曾说,“永远不要看轻别人,除非他需要你的帮助”。如果你的一生中有这样聪慧、令人激励和敬佩的人在实践这种哲学,那你就非常幸运。我们都需要一个激励自己变得更好而不是变得自卑的朋友。而且,在这样一个人身边将会促使我们不断提高,天天向上。
    The wise mentor in your life doesn’t have to be someone who shares the same occupation or hobbies with you. It’s simply someone who’s a few steps ahead of you in life and has enough wisdom and patience to guide you in the right direction. It can be anyone — a colleague, a friend who’s beyond their years, or an older neighbor — as long as you look up to this person and want to be more like them.
    在你的生命中,一位睿智的导师不一定要是某个职位与你相同的或是拥有共同爱好的人。仅仅是某个生活阅历比你多点,拥有足够智慧和能力,可以指引你走向正确方向的人。他可以是任何人—— 一位同事、一个阅历丰富的朋友或是一位年老的邻居,只要你敬仰并且想要成为甚至超越他们。
    5. A Friend From a Different Culture
    5.来自不同文化的朋友
    The last thing you want to be described as is someone who’s stuck in their own ways. If everyone had a friend from a different culture, the world would be a much better place. Being in a cross-cultural friendship allows you to explore customs, values, and traditions outside of your own culture. Sometimes you might even adopt new ways to do things.
    你最不想被别人描述成固执己见的人。如果每个人都有一位来自不同文化的朋友,世界将会变得更美好。一段跨文化的友谊可以使你体验与自己文化迥然不同的习俗、价值观和传统。有时,你甚至可能采用新的方式做事。
    Be careful; don’t befriend someone just because they’re from a different culture. No one likes to be a token friend. Instead, keep your mind open, and if you come across someone you click with who just so happens to be from a different culture, make the effort to learn about their customs, values, and traditions while getting to know the person on a personal level.
