What is friendship? The laws of friendship



Everything in our life comes and goes: money, work, things. Only people remain with us. Moreover, only those people who are dear to us. And often it’s much closer than relatives and, in some ways, even loved ones, it’s just friends. And today we will talk about what friendship is.

What is friendship? The laws of friendship

Friendship is an indicator of how interesting, important, and valuable each other is. The main quality indicators of friendship are such things as trust, tolerance, mutual understanding, mutual respect, the ability to meet and help, to be near in a difficult situation. True friendship is much more than just pleasant communication in a fun company. This is even a kind of mystery between people.

True friends, thanks to the fact that they know each other perfectly (and sometimes for some other reasons) can understand each other at a distance, without words, by the movement of hands, the expression of eyes, facial expressions, gestures. Sometimes it even happens that friends who have passed together "fire, water, and copper pipes" have some invisible, like a telepathic connection: one can know what the other is thinking, the second can predict the actions of the first, etc.

A friend is someone who cares about you. The one who shows attention to you, supports, participates in your life, is not indifferent to your emotions, problems, successes, victories, and defeats. A friend is one who shuts up any of his points of view and goes towards not for his own good, but for you - his friend.

The significance and value of friendship are that everyone can rely on the other in any situation or provide the necessary support and assistance. In friendships reigns loyalty, perseverance, equality, understanding, acceptance of each other with all the positive features and shortcomings. And if, for example, in a love relationship there may be disagreements and misunderstandings, because of which two people can break up, friendly relations do not accept this. And even in those cases when one, so to speak, invests in friendship more than the second, the feeling of friendship remains mutual and confidence in the other person remains.

What is friendship? The laws of friendship

When people are friends, each of them without hesitation will survive with the other as a moment of joy and happiness, and difficult situations, troubles, and failures. In friendship, everyone understands that he plays a very important role in the life of another. That is why friends trust each other with their plans, dreams, thoughts, ideas, secrets and sometimes even life. The greater and deeper the trust and respect between people, the stronger and stronger their friendship. It cannot be measured by the amount of money or merit. It's priceless. And only a true friend, if he really is in your life, makes you understand that you are not alone, and gives strength. This is a person for all occasions.

Friendship also shows the inner strength of a person, his qualities. And often this is what becomes an indicator because a person manifests himself. People who have not passed the test of strength, move from the category of friends in the category of good friends, and sometimes in the category of those with whom you just once was familiar, and now you have absolutely nothing. If there is someone in life whom you really feel, with whom you can be yourself without wearing masks, and who understands you and always helps you out, this person must be your true friend. And relations with him should be protected and stored because they are truly more expensive than gold.

A friend cannot be chosen - he just becomes a friend. It doesn’t matter what his appearance, habits, or worldview are. You may not like something about him, you can even criticize him from time to time. But when all the beautiful and good run away somewhere and wave their hand, when none of them have time for you, it is this person who will be with you and will do something for which no one else had the strength, desire or courage.

Friendship is a test. In appearance, it may seem that it does not require effort, care, and protection. In fact, it will never exist without our direct participation, because to treat another even better than yourself – this is a great thing. It is for this reason that we can safely say that friendship has its own special laws, no matter how strange, too loud or naive it may sound. These life principles are the conditions for the existence of friendships. And they must be respected by everyone who wants to have a friend or friends, and who considers himself a true friend.

Laws of friendship

What is friendship? The laws of friendship

Faith in Friendship

Faith in friendship means that one must accept without hesitation or doubt what it is, without requiring any proof or confirmation. This faith is the basis, the foundation of true friendships, on which trust, mutual understanding, mutual assistance and other integral components of friendship will be built.

The education of positive qualities

A person, if he considers himself capable of friendship, should cultivate qualities such as courage, fortitude, willpower, endurance, and many others. Courage implies the purposeful direction of the energy of your feelings and emotions in the right direction, to keep them under control of your consciousness. The power of the spirit is the ability to do things that other people are not capable of, the ability not to bend under the pressure of circumstances. Willpower allows a person to do something against their desires, circumstances, fatigue or reason. And endurance allows you to withstand huge loads, without resorting to the use of any other personal qualities.

All together these and other qualities add up to one strong, stable and integral personality. And if a person could become such a person, then you can rely on him and always be confident in him, which is one of the most important indicators of friendship.


Whatever happens, a true friend is simply obliged to come to the rescue of his friend, to help in any possible way. This should not depend on location, employment, mood or desire. If you find out that your friend is in trouble or needs serious help, you have no choice but to help him in spite of any obstacles.


This law is perhaps the most important. In part, it deals with the issue of mutual assistance, which we discussed above. However, here the help of a friend is revealed to a much greater extent. Self-sacrifice means that a true friend values the friendship and life of another person even more than his own life. And in situations when the life of one is suddenly at stake, the second without regrets will do everything so as to save a friend.

These laws and qualities must be observed, so to speak, subconsciously. I. e. their understanding either is, or it is not. For example, you can’t sit down and say to yourself: "From today I begin to be a friend, that is, I will believe in friendship, to cultivate all sorts of positive qualities, I will always help and, if anything, quickly give my life for a friend." All this should already be in a person, because through this attitude to others is expressed, especially to those whom this person considers his friends.

So, let's summarize. True friendships require the mutual efforts of the people in them. Two people, if they are friends, should treat each other correctly, feel mutual sympathy and desire to help and support each other. But such a relationship should also have a feed from both sides: both should feel the need to communicate, call each other, schedule meetings, make plans, and both should because feedback is very important.

However, there are several non-standard friendships. People can become great friends by getting to know each other online, even without ever seeing each other in real life. Some are friends from a distance. For example, one lives in India, the other lives in the US, Thailand, Mexico or anywhere else. There are even best friends who can not see each other for several months. This friendship can also be very strong and powerful. It is only important that the attitude be appropriate, because friendship, whatever it may be, is always demanding for both and sets a certain level, which must be met. And even if someone alone takes it all by chance, the friendship will just stick up and eventually come to naught.

Therefore, always remember your friends, wherever you are and wherever they are. Keep in touch with them, let them know that they are important to you. And most importantly, be prepared to be there in any foreseeable and unforeseen situation.

      Square Enix published a translation of the session of answers to investors ' questions about its financial results in the first half of the current fiscal year. Chief Executive Yosuke Matsuda confirmed that sales of "The Avengers" were below expectations and that the action role-playing movie has not yet paid off its production budget.

      Earlier it became known that Square Enix sold only 60% of the planned circulation of "The Avengers". It is estimated to have a budget of between $170 million to $190 million, with initial sales of only about 3 million copies. Because of this, the company's HD division lost approximately $ 62 million in the second quarter.
      Matsuda noted that if The Avengers hadn't been released last quarter, the HD division would have remained in the black. However, the losses were caused not only by the non-recouped development costs, but also by the marketing campaign, which suffered due to delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
      That being said, Square Enix still intends to make it profitable with post-release support. Last week, the developers announced that Kate Bishop will appear in The Avengers on December 8th.

      At a recent panel dedicated to "Rick and Morty," the authors revealed that they are already working on the seventh season of the animated series.
      According to writer Dan Harmon, he can no longer clearly track plot milestones — he even threatened to unwittingly reveal spoilers for the fifth or sixth season. Harmon also hinted that the" space version " of Beth will return in the future and somehow affect the overall plot.
      Previously, the Adult Swim channel swooped in on 70 episodes of the project from the creators, and so far the show has just reached the season 4 finale - this happened at the end of May.
      There is no exact date for the premiere of the sequel yet.

      In a recent interview, Zack Snyder said that for his version of "Justice League" in total, no more than 4-5 minutes were completed.
      Specifically, we are talking about new scenes, for which the director attracted most of the original cast. The numbers were so small because all the other material needed to complete the tape was already in the hands of the director - it only needed to be finalized. Simply put, the film's running time will still be four hours.
      He also revealed that this time there was no "focus group", and the tape will be made without any interference with the author's vision. By the way, in his version of the Joker, to the image of which Jared Leto returned again, will be slightly different from the image from "Suicide Squad".
      Snyder's Justice League will premiere on HBO Max in 2021.

      Distortion of science for political and economic ends has prevented the allocation of needed resources to stop the spread of dangerous pathogens. This places all of society as a whole at risk, but exacting an insufferable toll of death and disability on our front-line healthcare workers, along with our most vulnerable populations. COVID-19 has demonstrated how dangerous this scenario has become.

      We have seen the United States top officials publicly flaunt the wearing of masks and use substandard infection control practices.  A super-spreader event was even created at the White House’s Rose Garden when rapid testing was used to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2. This type of test is known for high false negatives especially with trying to detect asymptomatic carriers. And a security guard for the president was seen wearing an N95-mask with an exhalation value, a setup for spreading the disease.
      There also have been reports that the federal government has impeded or mitigated CDC recommendations for cruise ship No-Sail orders, and to pressure the CDC regarding school openings.  Having consistent scientifically based messaging on a national level is of utmost importance. The messaging in the United States can be characterized as nothing short of bizarre.
      The CDC has flip-flopped on guidance regarding the use of masks on public transportation, the testing of asymptomatic carriers, and was late to stress the importance of spread with viral aerosols – too many of our buildings are not healthy. Significant infrastructural changes are needed to allow for proper social distancing, increase in ventilation, and air sanitization. Infrastructure upgrades are expensive and so far the United States does not have the political will to actualize these changes.
      Needless to say, it is a warning that the abandonment of scientific evidence-based recommendations has all but stymied effective public health responses in the United States.
      Health Care Worker and Patient Safety is of Paramount Importance
      One of the worst aspects of the United States’ response is the failure to provide adequate personnel protective equipment (PPE). The United States’ federal government has not invoked the Defense Production Act to assure an adequate supply of N95-masks for our workers. These masks require a key ingredient ‘melt blown textile’ which is difficult to manufacture. Relying solely on the free market is ill-advised since, similar to the N1H1 pandemic, industry is reluctant to retool for manufacture when they may not recoup their startup costs. This reluctance has its roots in the ideology and the desire of leaders not to create excess mandates and government overreach.
      Some feel the delay in recognition of aerosolization as a major mode of spread of SAR-CoV-2 was related to the paucity of N95-masks and the desire not to alarm workers. As of this writing, N95-masks are still in short supply.
      The impact that this lack of basic protective gear has had may never be known, for no one is counting SARS-CoV-2 infections and deaths in front-line workers.  A lack of mandatory reporting of work-related illness has resulted in incomplete reporting on healthcare personnel; the number of healthcare workers who died from COVID-19 could be between 752 to above 4000. The bottom line is, we need to do better.
      We have stressed in the past the importance of establishing a surveillance system and regular screening of healthcare workers for endemic dangerous pathogens and those pathogens which have frequent outbreaks in a facility, including pathogens CRE, Clostridioides difficile, MRSA, and SARS-CoV-2.
      Healthcare workers also need to have an economic and healthcare safety net for both themselves and their families. Paid sick leave is of paramount importance, since it is not ethical to have a healthcare worker making the untenable choice between the safety of patients and placing food on their family’s table.  Acquisitions of dangerous pathogens that occur during an outbreak or pandemic should qualify the worker for presumptive disability.
      Additionally, no one is counting patients who contract COVID-19 in hospital settings. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ definition for a SARS-CoV-2 hospital-acquired infection is unfortunately next to useless; “Total current inpatients with the onset of suspected or laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 fourteen or more days after admission for a condition other than COVID-19.” Unfortunately, this definition is next to useless.
      For many patients, the greatest chance of catching SARS-CoV-2 is on the day of admission, due to being placed in a freshly turned over room and possibly going through the emergency room for initial treatment. Thus it is unlikely that few SARS-CoV-2 HAIs will be captured. The most accurate metric would be a diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 acquisition which would occur 5 days after admission, including those which present after discharge. This metric would balance false positive and negative results and give a much better estimate of overall system performance. This mitigation of SARS-CoV-2 data is reminiscent of past pandemics where countries have a long history of hiding the numbers, as opposed to reporting them and correcting the problem.
      The Need to Take Care of Disparate Populations, Even the Elderly
      Initially, the virus emerged in the northwest region of the United States and devastated Nursing Homes where infectious disease regulations were all too lax. In 2019, the CDC attempted to strengthen infection prevention in nursing homes by enacting the strategy of Enhanced Barrier Precautions.. ‘Enhanced’ a  deceptive word, since these precautions are less stringent than Contact Precautions (these precautions were being advocated for the control of the CDC’s ‘Urgent Threats’ of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) and Candida Auris and can also be applied to patients colonized with MRSA). Recommendations for Enhanced Barrier Precautions state: “Residents are not restricted to their rooms and do not require placement in a private room.”
      Enhanced Barrier Precautions allow carriers to participate in nursing home activities and only require healthcare workers to implement contact precautions for high-risk activities, but even low-risk activities, such as passing meds, occur so frequently that one would expect frequent healthcare worker contamination.
      These precautions do not appear to be based upon how the MDRO spreads, but instead on avoiding more stringent and resource-intense strategies.
      Such strategies would include: Healthcare worker screening and availability of abundant PPE, along with determining the patient’s microbiome, and if dangerous pathogens are present, decolonization, and as a last resort cohorting patients with similar pathogens in dedicated facilities. Pathogens do not care about politics or the needs of the individual, they are genetically programmed to spread.
      Dangerous pathogens are genetically programmed to spread. Strategies need to be based upon the pathogen and not the political expediency of our leaders or to lessen the economic impact on our healthcare system. The COVID-19 pandemic has taught us the need for public support and embracement of scientifically based public health strategies to stop the spread of dangerous pathogens (proper building ventilation, widespread testing, social distancing, wearing masks, and hand hygiene). These strategies can be expensive to implement and may cause a severe short-term economic burden but are the fastest path to a full economic recovery.
      Whether one deals with MRSA or COVID-19, screening, and decolonization or self-isolation of healthcare workers is of utmost importance. Their health, the health of their families along with their patients depend upon it.

      Flax seeds are an amazing superfood that combines a huge variety of different nutrients and is useful for all body systems. Even in ancient Greece, a decoction of Flaxseed was used as an anti-inflammatory agent, and for more than two thousand years, doctors have strongly recommended adding it to the diet. What is so useful flax seeds and how best to use them in food, we tell in our material.

      What are the benefits of flax seeds?
      Flax seeds contain the plant compound linamarin - it evenly envelops the walls of the stomach, creating a protective film on it that prevents harmful toxins from being absorbed, and protects the stomach mucosa from ulcers and gastritis. In addition, the high concentration of omega-3 and -6 fatty acids in flaxseed significantly increases the elasticity of blood vessels and heart muscle, strengthens them, and helps in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. Even if you don't have heart problems right now, regular consumption of flax seeds reduces the risk of them appearing in the future.

      Flaxseed is a source of antioxidant compounds. They protect body cells from free radical damage and have powerful anti-inflammatory effects. Antioxidants are the real elixir of youth: they nourish the skin from the inside, prevent the signs of aging and hyperpigmentation and protect the skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays.
      Flax seeds are rich in magnesium and phosphorus, which are essential for the proper functioning of the brain and nervous system. They increase concentration and performance and improve memory. A number of active substances in flaxseed strengthen bones, muscles, and tendons, prevent respiratory diseases, and restore the acid-base balance of the body.
      What's more, flax seeds are essential in your diet if you are looking to lose weight. They help burn visceral fat, and due to their high nutritional value, they provide long-term satiety and significantly reduce the risk of overeating.

      How to add flax seeds to your diet?
      The most important thing: it is useless to add whole flax seeds to food - the hard shell of the seed is beyond the strength of our stomach, which means that not a single nutrient will be absorbed by the body. The seeds can be crushed, or they can be soaked in warm water for 1-2 hours (then the shell will become soft and easily digested, and useful substances will enter the body).

      Further, in chopped or soaked form, flax can be added anywhere - here you are limited only by your imagination. Flax seeds are a great addition to your morning porridge, smoothie, or avocado toast. They can be sprinkled on salads, vegetables, and meat dishes, added to cream soups and stews.
