Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?

Letting a friend make a mistake is better than saying or doing something that would destroy the friendship.

Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

I have seen many friendships end because those friends interfere with the other ones’ mistakes. I really don’t want that situation to happen to me. So I prefer letting a friend make a mistake rather than risk an action that can cause me to lose my friendship.

People can learn from their mistake. Therefore, it is acceptable to Sometimes just let friend make  mistake, so he or she will remember that mistake and won’t do it again. For example, one of my friends once hung out with some guys who were not very nice. None of my friends would like liked them, but no one would talk talked with him anything about these guys. They knew that he would be very angry if they would make a comment about his new buddies (=  friends), so they let him learn for himself how bad these guys would be were. As a matter of fact, he broke up with them one a week later. Fortunately, he would still have his long time old friends, and he also learned how good judgment provide better results than experience to become a better judge of personality character. Thus, while he lost his new friends, he learned an experience that did not cost any of his old friends.

Additionally, most people don’t want interferences in their lives. Many of them have big egos, so they think that they don’t need anyone’s help or advices. This is even true Even if [the person’s assistance] can be really helpful. In many situations, I would become became upset when my friends would try tried to advise me not to do something. Deep down in my heart , I would know knew they would be were right, but I still didn’t want their advises suggestions. I just wanted to be free to do whatever I wanted even if it turned out to be negative negatively. For this reason, I don’t want to interfere in my friends’ choice other’s lives. Instead, I let them do whatever they want. Interference with their choices lives can make them upset or even break our friendship.

To conclude In conclusion, I would allow my friends to make minor mistakes rather than interfere with their actions and cause our friendships to end. [People can use their mistakes as a moral lesson, and most of them tend to hate others telling them what to do]. Therefore, it is better to let people make up their own minds.

dear TN,

In conclusion part, try to write two or three sentences that sum up the above points (in the body paragraphs). Avoid writing a sentence in which you didn’t discuss it on the essay’s body. I put one of your sentences in a brackets [ ] so that you could see and cross it out.
