Sometimes in life it is hard to keep up with all the latest customs, like BFF, good friends and best friends.
A good friend will tell you what you want to hear. A best friend will tell you the truth.
A good friend wants to talk about your problems. A best friend wants to help you with your problems.
A good friend expects you to always be there for them. A best friend expects to always be there for you.
A good friendship helps you both on your journey through your lives. Your friend is like a mirror who reflects back to you who you are to them. Your good traits shine and close friends never overreact or judge you. Friends encourage and support us, as we do them. Think how much better it is to give, rather than receive in a friendship. Try to create opportunities to spend time with others and get to know them as individuals.
Usually, friendships fall into two categories. One is where you discuss movies, pop culture, latest gossip and the weather. The other is where you get to know the other person earnestly, from aspirations to fears, from goals to dreams. It is very important that the other person needs to share your life too. Let them see you when you are in rough waters of your life and how you deal with it. Always be there for your friend.
Having a best friend is not only heartwarming, but it is life affirming. When you stop and think of it, your greatest jewels in life turn out to be your friends!
