Ever wonder if you have good friends? Well good friends can be hard to find. So here are a few tips from experience of what to look for in friendships. If you find that your friendship lacks these things, it’s a good idea to reevaluate why your socializing with them.
Honesty really is the best policy. If you have friends that are honest with you no matter what, even when it’s hard, don’t be mad at them. That is a good quality to have in a relationship and is a sign you can trust them. So the next time you ask ” does this dress make me look fat?” Then your friend responds “yes,” Just take the dress off and remember never ask something If you don’t want the answer.
If you have a friend that always helps you in your time of need, that is part of being a good friend. People who are always asking you for things and taking away your energy, are not worth the energy if they don’t invest it back in you. Relationships are a two way street of give and take. Not just give, give or take, take.
If I have learned anything in life, I have learned to keep positive people around me and negative ones out. That may sound like common sense, but a lot of people don’t really do that. Maybe the reason for that is they don’t know what a negative person looks like. If you have friends who are in trouble a lot. Even if they haven’t brought you into their trouble yet, that is a negative person. People who treat others badly even if it’s not you yet, that is a negative person. For the more obvious ones, anyone who is bringing down your since of peace or security is not a good friend. People who bring you happiness and move you forward in life are positive people you should keep around.
Those who have consideration for you, your time, and family are great to have around. You can count on them to look out for your best interest, abbr are very supportive mentally, physically and emotionally.
