Throughout the many unique and individual experiences I went through, the friendships that I made were one in a million. These friends shaped me and formed me in so many ways. I have learned an unfathomable amount through friendships as well as accumulating a lot of personal growth. The significance of friendships in my own Filipino experience has taught me unique lessons, an open mind, respect, growth, and has given me a strong feeling for who I am.
During my life I have been exposed to many kinds of people of all ages and ethnicities which have taught me things that I may have never learned. Thinking back, through all the memories and times, I got a taste of each person’s personality in my personal experiences with them. I found many of those people who I enjoy to be with because we share that common ground that lets you be yourself and feel comfortable. It really feels good to have friends on the same level as you.
Friendship is a very personal and unique thing. No two relation between any two people will ever be the same because only those people know what they have been through or shared together. This is what makes friendship such an exceptional thing. A large part of friendship is learning lessons together, and for almost everything in the world there is a lesson that must be learned. Learning these lessons through friendships is a very powerful and exceptional thing.
These lessons have varied from one extreme to the other in my life and have changed and shaped a large majority of my views and perceptions. Learning any lesson with a friend, be it significant or not, will bring you closer together; and furthermore that lesson that you learned was done in your own way which only you will have felt and experienced. Some important lessons that had precedence in my life were about life in general, love.
