It is more important to keep your old friends than it is to make new friends.


People often talk about that it must be wonderful to have a long-established relationship with your old friends from an early age, like the frinedship in the TV show <Friends>. Personally, I rather disagree with the statement. It would probably be more accurate to say that keeping your old friends and making new friends are equally important.
There is no denying that your old friends would know you better than new friends. Thus, cooperating with your old friends can be more efficient and thus more likely to succeed. For instance, Herzog and Meuron who work together as partners, desgined so many famous architectures all around the world like the De Young museum and Beijing National stadium. Since they are classmates from elementary school to university and they even did internship at the same place, they know each other very well and avoid making any conflict. Consequently, it is easier for them to work together than with other new partners.
However, it is well-worth noticing that this assertion cannot be taken as a general rule, as many new friends or partners can also make amazing success. A striking example is the cooperation between Zaha Hadid and Karl Lagerfeld. As the head designer of the fashion house Chanel, Karl was resonated with Zaha’s architectural works and then invited Zaha to collabrate with him on a new collection of shoes. Although it is the first time they collabrate with each other, they made a great success: the new collection of shoes, which redefined the beauty of fashion, was appreciated by the whole fashion world. In this case, making new friends can be such a valuable opportunity as they can bring some new ideas which you have never thought before.
Moreover, it is customary to say that making new friends would cost a lot of time as people need to explore an appropriate pattern of communication. But one cannot overlook that people can learn a lot of socail skills from such an exploring process. Besides, making new friends can be referred to as a satisfying pleasure in itself, thus many people would enjoy spending most of their time on it.
In addtion to that, one should not forget that you might not share the same life phase with your old friends. For example, as many of my old friends moved into small cities and got married, we cannot share our own pressure because it is difficult to understand the other lifestyle. For them, they want to share complaints about their husband or their children; for me, I’d rather talking about the pressure from my work. As a result, we cannot feel related to each other. Under this condition, it is time to make new friend who is also living in the big city and fights for a better life on her own.
To put it in a nut shell, that all amounts to saying that it is equally improtant to keep old friends and make new friends. One should not be self-confined to his old social zone, and be open to embrace new firends and new opportunities.
