What Freedom Means To Me

Freedom means many different things to many people, but to me it means I can live in a country that believes in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I mean this is the “Land of the Free”. However, these are things that not everyone can experience. Freedom to me also means I can make my own decisions when it comes to my life; decisions that can make or break my future life. Freedom also gives me the chance to make my own mistakes regarding of my life and my futures. I guess the government does believe in us that maybe that is why they made the legal age 18 instead of any other age. To me having freedom also means that I do not have to listen to my parents and teachers, well to some extent, because if it was not for them I would have not gotten to where I am today.

The good thing about having freedom is that I can choose what major I want to study and then I can change my mind later on in life and change it again. This is something that other countries do not have. For me, freedom is the basis of our lives, because it allows us to aspire to and achieve greatness. Think about it- what would we do if we did not have the ability to say “No”, use ambition, or be creative? How about not being able to attend school, choose our own spouses, or work wherever we desired? You see, if we did not have these privileges, it would be nearly impossible to progress from one point to the next.

Freedom may be the basis of life, but it has two other components that it could not exist without: respect and diversity. In order to have freedom, you need to respect others’ right to think and act as they like, and they will ultimately do the same. Freedom also creates and embraces diversity, because all people are unique and different. We are allowed to express our differences because of our freedom, and therefore can create different opportunities, friendships, and career options to expand and improve our lives. Freedom cannot exist without respect and diversity; but as Americans, we are lucky to have all of three of these in our country.

Essay

There are many things in our life that we can compare and contrast to one another, but one subject that stands out to me would be the differences between male and female friends. We all have friends that are male and female in our life. Although, we do not really notice it sometimes but there are many similarities and differences between having male and female friends. Therefore, in this paper I will be explaining the similarities and differences in having male and female friends.

When talking about female friends, most people think about emotions. Female friends love to talk to each other about emotions, which draws them closer as friends. They talk about the deepest problems and never hold back how they feel to one another. Female friends will also show physical contact by hugging one another and kissing each other’s cheek. They also are more comfortable around each other. For example, females are not scared to change clothes around each other and tell each other how they are really feeling. Although, having a female friend is more capable to put drama in our life. Drama is something most girls strive for; they love to have a lot of drama in their life. This addiction for females can cause a lot of problems for themselves as well as their closest friends. Having a female friend can also be an advantage for other females because; they will let their friends borrow each other’s items. Therefore, if someone needs a new dress for a party they can just look into their friends closet and simply take it for the night. Female friends are good to have although male friends are completely different than the female friends in our life.

Although when we talk about male friends, most people think loyalty. Unlike female friends male friends do not like to talk about emotions. Males like to talk about other things as in, basketball games, different girls they think are cute, or how life is going in general. Male friends also do not show physical contact like female friends do. Male friends do not like to usually hug or touch their female or male friends unless it is their significant other. They also do not hide anything; they will tell us the truth no matter how bad it will hurt us. Unlike female friends they do not like nor carry drama. Male friends do not like drama at all, they stand as far away as possible from it. The advantage of having a male friend is they do not strive for drama like females, so we will not be pulled into their problems. Also unlike female friends, males do not let other friends borrow their clothes, they rarely let anyone touch or wear their clothes but themselves. These many differences between male and female friends that I have mentioned also have similarities.

No matter how many differences male and female friends have, there are also many similarities. Having both male and female friends give us many options on who we can go and talk to about anything. No matter if they are a female or male friend, we know that they will always be here to protect us and listen to every problem we have. Both types of friends also make us feel wanted and loved. Even if we are having a bad day we have both genders of friends to cheer us up not matter the circumstances.

In conclusion, female and male friends are similar and different in many ways. We need to be friends with both female and male to make a good balance in our friendships. No matter how much female or male friends we have they all benefit us in many ways. Although, there are many differences in the gender of friends, they are always here for us no matter the differences or similarities.
