True friends are people who you enjoy to be around.
They don’t need to have a lot in common with you, but yet you and your friend can still have many great conversations.
There is distance between yourself and a good friend. You don’t need to be with them 24/7. But when you are together, it’s like you haven’t been gone at all.
True friends have fun with you, and respect your personal beliefs.
True friends do not pressure you.
True friends speak up when there is an issue- they are not passive when something within the friendship is wrong.
True friends try to understand your point of view, but yet they are not fake- they do not change themselves for your acceptance.
True friends do not put you in a position that will be damaging to your health, happiness, or in general, your life.
True friends accept your flaws, just as you accept theirs.
True friends are there when you need them the most.
I have very few true friends.
There were people I thought were my good friends, but they weren’t. So I walked out.
Some of them pleaded. Offered to change. I don’t want anyone to change- it’ll just be an act. Some simply said nothing, showing how little they truly cared about our “friendship”.
Bottom line, especially at this age, friends are fake. Their purpose in being “friends” with you is simply to socialize or to gain something from you- whether it be popularity or a ride home from school. An even took place back in February that made me reassess my “friends”, and I did eliminate some from my life.
Now, I literally only have a few friends, and I’m happier than ever. They are trust worthy, respectful, caring, and fun. When it comes to people, I always say QUALITY OVER QUANTITY.
I am very lucky to have those few great TRUE friends, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
