Please help me to see if the following sentence is written correctly? Thank you all for your help.

Hope

See example:

Nevertheless, on a personal level, I do think there is an exception in which one does not have to lose a friend.

If your essay is for school, you should know that academic writing should almost never be written in the first person.  If your assignment is to write about your personal thoughts and feelings, then it is okay.  Otherwise, don't refer to yourself.  I don't understand what the sentence really means out of context.  If you keep it in the first person, I would delete "on a personal level."  If you are talking about a personal level, then you would say "I do not have to lose a friend."  Here is the sentence in the third person.

 

Nevertheless, there is an exception in which one does not have to lose a friend.
