Are you a good friend?
There are several kind of friendships.
The peripheral friend, where you know the name and a little more about the other person.
The related friend, maybe your families friend or friends friend.
The good friend as you know much about and they do also know much about you.
The close friend as know almost all about you or at least the things you did choose to share.
The very close friend as we can define as a family member, we did choose ourselves.
What define you as a good friend? What are you doing to keep your friendships alive? Are you available when your friends need you, no matter what time it is? Do you remember to call and just ask, how are you, to your friends? Even you are busy, this is possible. We need to remember to appreciate our friends, while we have them.
It can be difficult to find time enough to be the good friend we wish to be. Jobs, family and kids take most of our time, but our friends are important to have too, even you don’t feel, that you need them right now. One day it can be too late, if you forget to keep the contact. We can all have periods in our lives, where we are very busy, sick or depressed and then the abundance are much less than usual. In those times it is wonderful to have good friends, as will remember you, if you did not forget them, when they needed you.
How do you define a good friend for you?
I try to be a good friend for my friends and I make mistakes too. When I don’t feel the abundance, I’m very bad to remember to contact my friends. Then I have been so very lucky, that those friends did contact me anyway. In other times I try to be the good friend, who helps my friends, where ever I can and they are always welcome to call me, also in the middle of the night, if they really need to talk.
What do you need from your friends? Are you the friend who gives the needed attention or the one, who always receive?
Friendship goes both ways, we need to be there for each other, when the other need us. Like when you need a good friend for talking. We need to support each other best possible.
I appreciate honesty and loyalty very much in my friendships, just like the mutual respect for each other are very important.
What is friendship for you? I would really like to know.
