what friends are for
Friends are there to stick up for you. And whenever people make fun of me for my stuttering issue, my friend Charlie is always there for me. If a kid was teasing me, Charlie would tell him to stop and that its not funny. Without help like that my years at fenn would’ve been much harder.
There was one specific time however where things got serious. This time I was in an argument, and as a comeback this person imitated me stuttering. Unlike the other times, this one really, really hurt. It was the average day in middle school sports, we were playing a game of dodgeball and me and another kid got into an argument. Other people started to crowd around to see what the commotion was about, then he dropped it. This person made fun of me and then there was just silence. All but one person, and that was Charlie. Charlie told him to stop and that it was mean, then others started to chime in and continue with support. If it wasn’t for Charlie, I would’ve felt differently and it would’ve changed my life. This experience is so important to me because its like no other, never has someone done something so helpful and uplifting to counteract a mean and hurtful comment. Charlie not only helped me in that one instance, but made me more confident in myself for future experiences. And thats what a good friend does, they stick up for you and care for you in instances like these, where your hurt but they come in and help you like a doctor to a patient.
When your friends have your back, everything will be better.
