In this research, we aimed to explore adolescents' experiences concerning the function of friendship in the process of the development of self-identity. We enacted the phenomenological approach as the method in this research. We conducted in-depth individual interviews for the data sampling. The research results show that friendship becomes a prominent point in the process of the development of middle adolescents' self-identity. It would happen if, in the relationship of a group of adolescents, there are similar values and trust. Therefore, they can influence each other and strengthen the identity of each individual.
