The word friend to me means someone who supports you in everything that you do, someone who understands you perfectly, someone who is very loyal and dedicated to the bond you two share. Being a friend means more than just getting yourself acquainted to someone, it means being closer than a stranger, believing in them, supporting each other and most importantly spending good times with those friends.
It’s quite unfortunate that true friends are hard to find, extremely hard but it will be very unfair of me to say that good friends are not in existence because they do and Can be such meduim of great blessings to anyone.
One thing I have observed over the years with friends, good friends or building good friendships is that it takes a lot of efforts from both sides to understand each other and to be non judgemental no matter the mistakes they have made. Most people are emotionally inclined to friends who are non judgemental than those who are, great friends are not just made, it’s rather a conscious decision to be one.
Naturally there are people who really suck at making new friends or sustaining a good friendship and there are people who are really good at this no matter the environment they find themselves but one thing we should understand is that real friends or true friends makes our lives more beautiful and colorful. No matter how much we suck at maintaining friendships, being a good friend to someone is necessary because there are friends who are more supportive, understanding and loyal than some of our family members 😁😁.
What makes a good friend is our ability to be there for each other, to support each other, to understand situations, to be a great listener etc. This and many more are those good friends qualities that distinguishes them from other people around us, it’s not just enough to be looking for people to be best friends with, it’s important that we build ourselves to be a perfect friend to others too.
Learn to say nice words to your friends, compliment them when it’s necessary, go all out to support them both physically and emotionally because to have a friend is to simply be a friend. We only Attract what we truly are.
Personally I have been so unfortunate with friends, I think I have more friends with drama than those without it😂😂 but then I can’t deny the fact that most of my close friends are great buddies and the best anime of great friendship too.
It’s not that difficult to make friends for those who are shy or not so great at this. Starting off with a simple;
“You look really great”
Can be a start of a beautiful friendship.
Appreciate your friends while you can because it’s not so easy to have good people called “friends” around.
