Did These Quotes Show You How Significant Friends Are to Your Growth and Happiness?

Competitiveness is a typical human trait. It’s actually pretty healthy to have a friendly competition with those around you, as that kind of pressure will push you to want to improve. However, it becomes unhealthy when you start thinking negatively about others and actively try to bring others down.

This is what happened at the beginning of Toy Story. Woody was so used to being the favorite that he couldn’t accept Buzz Lightyear’s presence. It started as bouts of jealousy, but it got worse, and Buzz almost got lost forever.

Though Woody initially denied his mistakes, he slowly began to realize them with the help of his other friends like Bo Beep, Slinky Dog, Mr. Potato Head, and more. Through them, Woody becomes more honest and tries to make up for his wrongdoings by going on a quest to save Buzz.

There were many instances where Woody felt so out of his element, but in the end, he was able to get Buzz back home. To add to this, the bad blood between the two dissipated. They became more mature through their hardships, and they became the best of friends.

So, through Toy Story and the quotes above, we learn that friendship is vital to one’s growth. After all, Woody wouldn’t have recognized and corrected his mistakes without the help of his friends. Friends are like family; never take them for granted!
