Hello World Wide Web of Beautiful people!
You probably have already read magazine articles and other blog post about whether or not you have a good friendship. This is somewhat the same, the only difference is my personal experiences.
This is one of the most important lessons I have learned in the past couple of years. I actually had to leave my friends to notice there are only three things everyone should have in a friendship.
Loyalty is really important in a friendship. In a way you and your friend are like sisters/brothers. No matter what happens or how far apart you two are; you still call each other, like you’re just next door. You should have each other’s back at all times, even if you’re mad at each other. You two are each others ride or die buddy, no matter what.
My friends are all over the world; and we invite each other to each others house.
This part is just as much about you as it is about your friend. You as a friend should be there in a time of trouble. Even if it makes you uncomfortable (but why would you be uncomfortable)? And in return, she/he will do the same for you. Supporting each other isn’t just about being a shoulder to cry on either. It’s also, being the positive person who believes that they can do anything if they put their minds to it. Also help them get to where they want to go.
Story time: A couple of years ago, I had a somewhat best friend. We did everything together and told each other everything. Unfortunately, since I traveled a lot, I had to move. After I moved, I started thinking about our friendship and if she was a good friend. I started to realize how much she was willing to lie to me about everything. I thought we’d keep in touch after I left. But I guess not. It really hurt me to know how mean she really was toward me. (by the way it’s not the girl in picture with me)
If your friend is willing lying to you just because she too scared to tell you the truth. For example, if she/he doesn’t want you too come over ; she’ll/he’ll tell you their mom said no company when their parents are not home. But their vehicles are parked in front of the house. Obviously she/he doesn’t think you too are close enough to bluntly tell you the truth.
Basically If you catch him/her lying to you. Gently point out the fact that you know they are not telling the truth. If it is so easy for a friend to lie to you. She/he is not a good friend, let alone a best friend. The same thing goes for you to, don’t lie to your friends. ( unless you’re trying to surprise them or something)
In conclusion, you’ll be able to tell if she’s/he’s a good friend. There are many things that make up a good friend, but mostly just you being a good friend. That is what I learned in the past couple of years and I’m really great full to have such great friends.
