Friends.. even when fighting by ChikitaWolf Friends.. even when fighting by ChikitaWolf
Stamp by ~ChikitaWolf
Image found on Google (facebook)

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

Ahh I see ^^; But yeah. People were agreeing with that 'friend' of mine on practically everything -__- She pretty much degraded those that wrote gender bender fics, calling authors who write those 'homophobic' when some of them supported gay rights even O_O

Ha ha I know XD I mean I have nothing against homosexuals at all. I'm a supporter of gay rights and so are most gender bender authors...she has to face reality that not everyone will agree with her. I learn to live with the fact, not everyone likes yaoi or shounen ai for example. That's just life.

 

Sorry if I ranted by the way. People like that just...erk me.

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.

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...

this just reminds me of some fights i had with my sister (she's so hard to live with, but now she's in college and i miss her ;_; ) and sometimes to prove that i'm such an awful person, she likes to play the "i yell/ fight with my friends" card. and yes, i admit to yelling at and having arguments with my friends occasionally. but when you're around my friends as much as i am, it's expected to butt heads every once in a while |D

Haha, this reminds me of the great "L vs. Light" fight me and my friend had quite a while ago after watching Death Note XD I took L's side and my friend took Light's side. It was quite an awesome friend-fight thing (looking back on it) especially since we tried to bribe people to get on our side to build up an army XD
Agreeing again with your wonderful stamps~~~~ :meow:

Wonderfully said. I've really never gotten into a real fight/argument with any of my friends (... That's strange. |D), but I've had plenty of disagreements, especially with this one friend. She hates anime with a passion, thinks art is a waste of time, and well, has lots of viewpoints that differ from mine. |D We have discussions, fake argue, and etc all the time, but we're still friends. I don't see how having different opinions would make a person not your friend. |D

... Sorry for the rambling. ^^; *shot*

Hara-chan and I haven't gotten in a true fight either :'3 We "playfully" argue more than anything, but I think we've only had one incidence or two where there was uncertainty :P

Sounds like an entertaining friend :'D

Pffff-- we both ramble |DD
