So, today, I thought I would do a “What Makes A True Friend?” blog – partly because it isn’t something that we consider in our daily lives, but also something to think about.
I think the most important thing that makes a true friend, is someone who respects you for YOU. Someone who accepts you for what you enjoy doing and who you are. They should be someone who is there for you through the good and bad stages, whatever may be, that passes through our lives. But it also comes down to yourself. If you don’t treat them the same way, conflicts, or friction could happen. (Although, I know, I know, conflicts DO happen anyway, whether we like it or not).
Another thing that makes up a true friend is someone who you know well. Someone who you know well is already there to being one of your true friends as you may know many things about each other so you have lots to talk about or have something in common.
So, I know this might be sounding cheesy and a little cringe , but it is true and it is what it is! There are many people out there who aren’t who they appear to be, for example, social media – you have so many people online who are supposedly your “friends” when you’ve never even met them, let alone knowing anything about them. Of course, that isn’t an issue, but it’s something to keep in mind.
And finally, your true friends are those who will always stand by you.
Thanks so much for reading, and please let me know what you think down below in the comments!
