Good and Bad Friends
Everyone has his friends;however,there are good friends,and there may be bad friends in one’s life.
A good friend points out your shortcomings as well as praises you for your merits,and shares your sorrow over failures as well as your joy of success.He does not drift away from you because of your poverty or ill fortune and yet does not flatter you because of your wealth or power.He always comes to you when you are in trouble,for he takes it for granted that a friend in need is a friend indeed.
A bad friend only praises you but never criticizes you.When you have wealth and power,he comes to depend on you;when you are in trouble,he runs away from you as fast as his legs can carry him.He himself often lies and is always lazy,tending to idle away his time in pleasure-seeking,such as hitting the bottle,gambling and visiting prostitutes.He may even tempt you into the mire of wrongs.
So everyone of us should associate with good friends and get rid of the bad ones.
