Friends.. even when fighting

I had the urge to make this after stumbling across some arguments about how friends treat each other, etc, etc. Someone made a comment that friends who fought a lot shouldn't be friends at all.

Well, like in most situations (if not all), there's always that instance where a statement doesn't necessarily apply (gotta love exceptions), like this one.

You see, just because a friend has an argument with you or (God forbid!) doesn't agree with you, does NOT mean they aren't your friend. Just because they disagree with you does not mean they don't love you.

I've often gotten into arguments with my real life friends, and we still love each other dearly.

And it's the same case with my cyber friends. Heck, I've had instances where we get in an argument through comments where half of the comment is arguing whereas the other half is joking around (or apologizing :'D).

Now, I'm not saying that constant fighting and arguing ISN'T unhealthy (in some cases); but many a time, a good argument or so can actually be a great way to grow in your friendship. It also means that that friend speaks for what they believe in and isn't a puppy dog that's going to pat you on the butt and compliment you every which way.

Anyway, as I said, there's always exceptions. I'm sure there are a lot more things I could type in here-- other scenerios-- where fighting or arguing can be good or bad-- but I honestly don't feel like typing a ginormous rant today :'3

So, yeah. Just because a friend argues with you doesn't (necessarily --darn exceptions) mean they don't love you.

PS: Yes, those are tacks shaping the heart in the image I used. Thought I ought to make that clear just in case you were squinting extra hard trying to figure it out >3>""

Exactly. I was talking to a friend of mine, and we were talking about how our differences sometimes make us fight, but our differences only make us stronger when we come together, fight included. Just like a puzzle piece, so different on their own, but when two pieces come together they fit perfectly :D

I think it's healthy to disagree with your friends or whoever you're close to. It annoys me when people always agree with their friend but they really don't. Just say how you really feel, easier said then done but still ^^; Unfortunately this one friend I had was completely out of line. She made a post pretty much bashing authors who write certain fics and that really upset me. She just wasn't the person, I thought she was after all when I saw how she treated others who disagreed with her :( I can't stand people like that in general though really. I treasure my friendships sure, but if they treat someone different because of what that person writes or reads? I don't accept that behavior from anyone.

 

Ah sorry if I rambled through this ^^; But I do think friends can disagree with one another.

If you didn't disagree with each other, you wouldn't really be friends, just ass patters :'D

Yeah that's true. I mean if you don't agree with someone, just say it right?

Oh how I wish certain people would understand that! A few months ago I lost a friend again simply because we got into a fight due to a disagreement so instead of working it out, he blocks me and throws me out of his life. The sad thing is i'm not the only one, there's others he blocked and threw away because of disagreements. I've had my fights with people, but I never once blocked them or walked away unless it was a good reason (lying all the time, treating me horribly all the time, etc.). But to end a friendship over a fight is stupid cause i value the friendship than the fight. Simply, i wish people cared more about friendships than throwing it away so easily. I fought long and hard to keep a friendship going, and even in the end i got hurt, it shows how loyal i am and how much i care. Sorry I'm rambling lol.

I'm sorry that happened to you too. It's a bad thing to go through and I hope your friend realizes what they lost and if they don't then they're not worthy to be your friend if they don't understand what friendship means. :hug:

Exact way I feel!

The issue I've seen more often than not though.. is some seem to have this idea that friendships/relationships mean you NEVER argue and will terminate ties with a person after having argued only one or two times. It's absurd.

my friend and I always fight :D
but we're still friends, after 4 years, and we're mostly joking, so it's all cool. :meow:
I hate it when people tell us to stop fighting. Maybe they think that we're being serious...

True, true. I mean, just because you're friends, doesn't mean you're the same person. You're friend's with that person because of who they are, not because they're your creepy clone. Friends can get in a few spats with each other, it really doesn't mean anything.

Though, I suppose, if a pair of friends got into fights over every little thing, that would be a different story...

Creepy clones are creepy owo" ((I've seen them at my school >3> ))

Yeah, there's a line that shouldn't be crossed ^^" Fighting is one thing-- but serious fighting is bad, and stressful.
