Giving is… friendship.
by Jennifer Kim
Closing off yet another school year and watching new graduates leave, it’s hard to imagine where I would be without my friends. Their words, attitudes, and actions have aided in the becoming and molding of what is incessantly known as the ‘new me.’ In all my imperfections, they have continuously shown me love and understanding throughout the years, teaching me humility over pride, altruism over self-interest, giving instead of taking.
Through their sacrifices, they have revealed the measures they would take outside of their comfort zone to provide me with undeserving care. [Even if it means tolerating something as miniscule as my horrible storytelling skills.]
And by their unconditional acts of giving, they have demonstrated that humility isn’t thinking less of yourself, but thinking less about yourself and more about others.
So this is a cheers to our friends who have taught us the deeper meaning of what giving truly is.
