In this story, a girl named Evie has a hard life, she was kinda bullied at school, she felt alone all of the time, and was really depressed. But one day she talked to the guy that was rude to her and she tells him that what he was doing was not acceptable. He explained to her that he thought he was joking with her and that she knew that. He didn't understand that she was going through things. So she confided in him and they became best friends. He would help her when she was sad. He understood her a lot more and knew when she was happy and sad and angry and whatever. And he and she had some really deep talks, and in the end, he stopped her from killing herself. And this shows that friendship can help you through the hard times because without him she probably would have gone through with it.
In this song, it says "I can count on you...you can count on me...cause that's what friends are supposed to do..." telling that counting on your friends is like a second nature, its one of the main things friends are for.

In this video, a little boy had a "bad crash" with one of his toys, when they took him in they found out he had tumorous sclerosis, which comes with tumor growth throughout his body. His dad lost his job and his mother had to quit hers so that she could care for him. The parent's friend Harold wanted to help them because he noticed they were struggling financially. He took their story to the news and got the family $600. This shows the theme because he stuck through them throughout their hard times, and he said that he had known them for about five years and for four of those years they were struggling. He was able to give them help when they really needed it. And they really appreciated that. And that shows that their friendship got them through their financial hard time, and without him, they would have just kept struggling
When you are going through hard times, sometimes it is easier to rely on your friends rather than your family. You are just always with your family and it might get overwhelming. The thing is, most friends are not professional therapists and might not know what to do. So in this article, it lists 21 of the most helpful things that you can do for a friend in a crisis.
This quote "Friendship isn't about who you've known the longest. It's about who walked into your life, said 'I'm here for you' and proved it." really shows what friendship means, but not only because it defines it but it hits you hard. It is just more proof that your friends can help you through the hard times because you can't just say that you are there for someone and then not be. That isn't friendship, that's fake. If they actually stay with you through it all and help you through it, and you do the same for them, that is true friendship.
"During times of crisis, we often depend on our friends for support." This is the first sentence in the article, and it could not be truer, you have a more special bond with friends, like not with your family where you have to love them because you are related. You have made a choice, an effort, to stay friends and not fade away. So when a crisis comes we tend to lean back more on our friends automatically because of the bond.
