True Friendship: Redefined Aristotle once said that, “A true friend is one soul in two bodies.” In today’s era, forming true friendships has become more of a challenge rather than just a casual encounter.

While the social norm defines a true friendship as being a regard with liking, affection, and loyalty between two wellknown people, there is so much more that delineates the true beauty found within a friendship. The obviousness of having formed a truly genuine acquaintance is evident through the number of laughs and tears shared, the inside jokes and nicknames thought up, the adversities overcome together, the unconditional love and support given, but most importantly, the ability to fart and burp in front of each other.
Society has evolved into believing that true friendships are established when there is a common ground between two people, but where society’s principle is flawed is in that shared aims are a simple aspect in the forming of a unique bond. Although it is commonly noted that most true friendships are formed between seemingly similar people, there have been many heartfelt friendships between clearly distinct characters.
