What It Means To Be A Friend

Be a friend that shows up when needed and is always eager and ready to help in every way.

Be a friend that offers support instead of hate or envy.

Be a friend that is ready to listen without judging or interrupting.

Be a friend that is not afraid to say the truth, no matter how difficult it may be.

Be a friend who does not hold grudges but will rather talk things through and move on.

Be a friend that apologizes when they’ve made a mistake. If you want to be trusted, you need to show that you’re not flawless.

Be a friend that acts as the voice of reasoning when things go south.

Be a friend that sticks around when things go wrong or get tough.

Be a friend that keeps their promise. Do not make a promise that you can’t keep.

Be a friend that keeps in touch and is honestly interested in their friend’s wellbeing.

Be a friend that shows respect by being openly and mutually supportive. Your values and beliefs don’t have to align but should be respected.

Be a friend who asks for help when needed instead of thinking you shouldn’t let your friend know that you have down times.

Be a friend that prays for your friends like you pray for yourself because you want them to have everything they have ever dreamed of.

Be a friend because you want to be a friend not for clout, opportunities or other ingenuine purposes.
