Friendship VS Financial Disparity

更新时间:2012-11-19    来源/发布:www.en369.cn    作者/编辑:英语作文网

Despite the fact that they share the same entry under the character F, these two words "friend " and "finance " can seldom meet in my life. However, nowadays, it is highly possible that some of us may feel inferior and fall into a dilemma if the friend we want to make is equipped with a really fine financial background. But for me, friendship is mostly based on the mutual respect either in our inner world or the external one. Of all the elements which could be an obstacle in friends making, financial disparity bears the least importance. Instead, this kind of disparity, in some cases, can also contribute to the growth of friendship.
First and foremost, it seems to me that financial disparity could not thrust a hand in the choice of our friends since the fact that we come together almost has nothing to do with financial background. Actually, it is the common interests that do matter. In the process of choosing a friend, we care more about the personal virtues rather than wonder about his cellphone's brand. It makes no difference for me whether it is Iphone or Nokia. It seems to me those things mean nothing to our friendship for I seldom spend time talking with my bosom friends about that.
Secondly, this sort of disparity may renew our values. It seems like that once the disparity exists, then the changes come together. This kind of disparity can absolutely encourage us to better communicate with the fantastic world. It seems to be an exhibition on another world, where might have a totally different lifestyle we have set an edge upon for a long time or a touching story we have never experienced during our past years. For example, a girl whose parents work from dawn to dust for her tuition may study more diligently and live quite a frugal life, which can give the motive power to her friends who are accustomed to a life without any financial worries. It is self-evident that this kind of lifestyle does not benefit them actually. They may gradually lose their appetite for life in the long term.
Last but not least, a friend with better financial condition can offer us a hand when we are trapped in financial problems since everyone could come into some emergency. It always puts that a friend in need is a friend indeed, which bears the most significance in friends making. In this reason, if one friend gives us a hand when we are in need, we should not feel it is his responsibility to do that, instead, we may feel deeply grateful to him. When it comes to this, it occurred to me two typical figures---Marx and Engels, both of whom had made great contributions to the human history. In order to help his friend, Engels continued to do business which he showed no interest in, so that he could own enough money to support Marx. It seems that friendship is something that can bring the best of each other regardless of the financial disparity.
Throughout our lives, we can gain a lot and lose so much. We are eager to keep an eternal friendship. But it can hardly live up to our expectations. Sometimes, it is just because we pay too much attention to those insignificant things such as the financial disparity. Friendship is unconditional and uncritical. Since we are young, we'd better cherish the friends we have made in college and preserve our friendship in case it could be contaminated by any kind of outward vanity.
