"Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Competition among friends usually has a negative impact on friendship."
Competition is thought to inhibit the development of a friendship. This idea is not unreasonable. There are cases where friends split up because one wins and the other loses. 【在introduction处让步后转折，文章的主体部分就不需要再让步了，仅“让小小一步”也是一种可以接受的行文逻辑的设计】 However, despite the many break-ups, I remain optimistic.
When a person believes that competition is favorable to a friendship, the immediate idea is that competition enables two individuals to better know each other. To win a contest, one must study the other—his or her character and personality. As a result, mutual understanding, which may be in-depth as the study goes on, will develop, laying a firm foundation for the friendship.
Without denying the aforementioned reason, we should find reasons that matter more. 【承上启下】 First, competition tests a friendship. In other words, whether a friendship is authentic is not certain unless the relationship goes through the competition between two people. It is only if a person, either winning or losing, respect rather than despising the other or being green with envy that the friendship is true. For example, a friend of mine always achieve higher academically than I do. However, never do I for this reason feel disgruntled, and he never looks down upon me. Instead, thanks to the numerous competitions during the years that challenge our relationship, we are aware of that our friendship is unbreakable.
In addition, a friendship is likely and sound only between two people who are able to compete with each other. 【思路已明确，展开内容保密】
