What Qualities Makes a Person a Good Friend
Hmm - that's an interesting question. That's one question we all would have thought about at some point in our lives. Well, to start of with, a good friend should understand you and accept you for who you are and not what you should be - according to them. A good friend should be able to keep your secrets and never divulge them to a third person under any circumstances - except when its for your own good. A good friend should give you an honest opinion - not a diplomatic opinion - when asked. He/she should be critical of you when criticism is warranted. They should bring you back to earth if you are floating in your own delusionary world. They should not be bothered about offering blunt advice if that's what is needed.
A Good Friend Would Be Someone.........
A good friend would be someone who expects no favors back from you and does not value your worth based on favors returned.
A good friend would be a selfless person who values your friendship more than material gains that can be had through his/her association with you.
A good friend should be someone who stands by you through thick and thin and supports you in your most difficult and darkest hours.
A good friend would never leave your side when you need them the most.
A good friend doesn't judge you for your shortcomings; instead, offers suggestions and advice to help you overcome those weak points.
A good friend is one whom you can count on when the rest of your family and supposed friends walk out on you.
A good friend is one who believes in you and supports you when all the rest think you are a goner and desert you.
A good friend is hard to find. So, if you do find a good friend, keep him/her. They are a rare breed and you'd do well to appreciate their worth and keep them.
