I am trying to do a definition paragraph and was wondering if this would be good on A FRIEND TO ALL topic. please help.
A friend to all is essential in all friendships and is someone we can share our thoughts, feelings and gives us support. My opinion on a friend to all is one who has an open and close door policy, who is not judgemental on mistakes or decisions your gonna make or already have, that person to be truthful, supportive and can count on in times of need. We all have friends but there are very few friends who fit this type of criteria. They listen to what you have to say but never seems to bring up their own problems. It almost reminds me of a counsellor where they give you advice and you can take it if you want it. It's that person who will encourage you and will be there if you fall and at times if needed; give forgiveness.
This is more of a description paragraph. You are describing a friend.
Definition paragraphs or essays are usually written about ideas or things, not people. You'd be wise to start over and write a definition paragraph about friendship.
Here are some guidelines for writing definition papers:
that is what the teacher was asking for.
