Anne Frank

In the first few chapters of Anne Frank’s diary she talks about being glad she has her diary Kitty to write in, because she does not have a real friend to talk to. She has many friend but no one who understands her, and who she can really be herself with.

My question to you: How do you define a real friend. What is the difference between having a real friend and just being friends with someone? What would someone have to do for you to consider them a real friend? Do you think anyone considers you a “real friend”?

Bonus Question Do you think writing in a diary would help you?05-08afrank_full_380

  2. I define a real friend by someone who is always there for me when i need them. The difference between a real friend and just someone i’m friends with is a real friend i can tell my personal business to. Someone that i’m just friends with i can’t. In order for someone to be my real friend they have to be trustworthy and have to know how to keep secrets. I think two of my friends consider me a true, real friend to them.

  3. A real friend will stand up for me if i’m getting picked on
    A real friend will not make fun of anyone who is sick in your family
    A real friend could keep secrets and not tell anyone
    A real friend will not gossip about me behind my back
    A real friend will not listen to what other people say that i said
    A real friend is someone that doesn’t try to beat me up to show off
    A real friend will always be by my side no matter what

  7. To be an real friend you have to a good listener and not a snitch and not turn on me tell each other secrets.To defend each other when getting bullied. You should trust each other.

  8. To be a real friend your someone who is always their to talk to about personal stuff and you can share your feelings with. Your someone who is always their to defend you when your being bullied. Your someone who knows the dark secrets about you and the other stuff. Someone who is always their to pick up the pieces when your down. Thats Vincent Caccavano’s idea of a real friend.

    The way I define a real friend is someone who I can talk to and someone who nows have to hold thing that i tell her and who will always be there for me.The difference between a real friend and just a friend is a real friend is someone that will not talk behind my back and will not hurt me with words and someone that i can call a sister, a friend is someone who i will hang out and i will not tell them everything but tell them somethings.Be there for me all the time through thick and thin, though hurt and pain, through tears i cry, through smiles and laughs.Yes my friend Chyan is is funny and caring and loving and through the arguments we have we always get through it. Wrting a diary will help me i always write in a book and talk about my feelings and my friend Chyan is my diary too.
