"Friends Are Kind of Scary"

“朋友也有些可怕”


Friendship isn't easy. To hear many of you tell it, making a good friend is almost like adding a new family member. It comes with risk and responsibility.

经营友谊从来不易。很多次我们从别人口中听到,交个好朋友就跟家里添个新成员一般,责任与风险同在。


"Friends are kind of scary," said Mary, 14, who has trusted some friends with secrets and regretted it. "Not them in person, but the thought of them in general. It's almost like you are investing in this one person, whoever it may be."

“朋友有时也挺可怕的,”14岁的玛丽说,她觉得朋友们挺可信的就分享了自己的一些秘密但现在后悔了。“不是说她们中具体哪一个,而是想到这件事。就像不管谁也好,你得在某个人身上下注。”


Sometimes what a good friend needs from you is brutal honesty, not a cheerleader. Gretchen, 15, said: "A true friend is a person who would really tell you how bad you look in that bright pink spandex suit, even though you really like it."

有时好朋友需要的是你的直言不讳,而不是曲意逢迎。15岁的Gretchen说,“一个真正的朋友会告诉你你穿着那件粉红弹力衫真的很难看,尽管你真的很喜欢。”


Friends aren't always forever. Angelica tells the story of a friendship that began in kindergarten. She remembers how close they were back in the days when she helped her friend cope with diabetes, sat with her after her appendix was removed, and listened to her as she struggled with family problems.

友谊并不会永远都在。安杰丽卡说起一段从幼儿园就开始的友谊。她还记得那时她们非常亲密,她帮朋友一起面对糖尿病,在她切除阑尾后陪着她,听着她说家里的烦恼。


But her friend moved away recently and hasn't returned her calls. Angelica has heard that her friend now hangs out with kids who drink and do drugs. "I know what these things can do to you," Angelica said, "and I could help her again. But I feel too far away."

然后最近她的朋友搬了家,而且一直没回她的电话。安杰丽卡听说她现在和一些酗酒吸毒的孩子混在一起。“我清楚这些事情的后果,”安杰丽卡说,“我也愿意帮她,但我们之间好像已经隔得很远了。”


Romance, like distance, can complicate things. Many teens told of friendships that soured after their friend began seeing someone.

恋情,就像距离,让事情变得复杂。许多少男少女说当他们的朋友开始约会别人时,他们会吃醋。


"I think the nicest thing a friend ever did for me was to decide that she would still be my friend this school year even after I dissed her to hang out with all these cute guys," 14-year-old Darilynn said. "I love her for that ... I've learned my lesson.“

“我觉得朋友为我做过的最好的一件事是,这个学期在我不屑她而与帅小伙出去约会后她还愿意当我朋友。”14岁的Darilynn说,“因为这我真是爱死她了……这件事让我懂了不少。”
