What Does It Mean to Be a Friend?


Acts of Friendship

友谊之举


For Ashley, it was like this: She was sitting with a big group in the school lunchroom when she accidentally knocked her drink onto her lap. As word spread that it looked like Ashley had wet herself, the laughter began to mount. Then she noticed her best friend doing something strange.

对于阿什莉而言,它意味着:在学校餐厅和一大堆人坐一起时,她不小心把饮料打翻在了膝盖上。周围议论纷纷看上去就像是她尿裤子了,哄笑声开始越来越多。然后她看到她最好的朋友做了件不寻常的事。


"She poured water on herself," Ashley said.

“她往她自己身上倒水。”阿什莉说。


True friendship is hard to find, Ashley says. But she knows it when she sees it. And so do many of you. We asked our readers what it takes to be a good friend. The responses poured in — more than 5,000 of you shared your thoughts on friendship.

真正的友谊很难找到,阿什莉说。但是当它出现时她就会知道。就像你们中的大多数的感觉一样。我们问读者们成为一个好朋友需要什么时,各种答案纷至涌来—超过5000多名读者和我们分享了他们对于友谊的看法。


For some, the defining moments of friendship were profound, such as the soulmate who helps you through the grief of losing a family member or camps out in your hospital room when you're sick. For others, it's smaller gestures that loom large — the friend who talks for hours when you're feeling alone, even if it means going over on his cell phone minutes; the one who helps you with your homework, even when she hasn't done her own; or the friend who helps you search for your retainer, even when it means going through the garbage from the school lunch.

对于有些人而言,决定友谊开始的瞬间是具有深层含义的,就像一位心灵伴侣,当你痛失亲人帮你抚平忧伤,或者当你生病时陪护在你病房。而对于另一些人而言,友谊则是在细微动作中体现的深意—朋友就是当你孤单时,尽管话费超时仍和你聊上几小时的那个人;朋友就是当她自己作业都没做完,却帮着你完成作业的那个人;或者是那个帮着你一起找固定器的人,尽管那意味着要翻遍学校餐厅的所有垃圾。
