A strong friendship doesn't need daily conversation, doesn't always need togetherness, as long as the relationship lives in the heart, true friends will never part.
Friendships are one of the best gifts that God has given us. Having friends in your life has the way of changing us either in a positive or negative manner. It can be hard sometimes to find the right group of friends, but when you do the results can be so amazing.
As I have made my way through life so far I've come across about two different types of friendships. The first group are the friends who have loved and supported me unconditionally and then the second group are the people who have used me for their advantage then thrown away the friendship the second that it's over. I think it's important that we find the friends that will support and love us regardless of what is going on. I want y'all to consider these 4 qualities that I value in my friends.
1. Brings Out The Best In You
Your friends are supposed to give you strength and help you become the best versions of yourself. It's important that you have that support from your friends, but also that you do the same. Always support your support system so it never feels like a one-sided friendship.
I feel like loyalty is so important in friendships. A loyal friend will always stick up for you when you need it. They will stick by your side when you are in your darkest days and are here to dust you off when you fall.
3. Speaks The Truth
Your friends should always tell you like it is. Truth is important in friendship. A true friend loves you and truly want the best things for you. They should always tell you the good and bad, no matter how hard it might be for them.
4. Always Encouraging
Encouragement is an 100% must have in any relationship honestly. They should always be there to celebrate any accomplishments in your life. Encouragement doesn't mean you have to sugar coat everything, instead it's important to remain positive
Sometimes it can be difficult to be a good friend, and no one is ever going to be that perfect friend. It's okay to strive to be the best friend that you can be. Friendships are important to everyone. Don't forget to love others the way that you would want to be loved and you will become the best friend that your friends will need.
