Who are good friends??


In my recent articles i insisted that we should all counter check on who should be our close friends,i said a good friend can lead you to a success but at the same time a friend can lead you to a pitfall,we should know if we have good friends or just some pretenders trying to be our friends,we should know if the guy you call a friend envies you or he loves you..

It’s good for your happiness to be a great friend to someone and to have a group of good friends supporting you. But it can be hard to pinpoint exactly who makes a good friend.

Who are good friends?

  • The one that listens.
A good friend is the one that listens,one that understands different situations at your point of view ,any one that listens careful is able to understand you more.

  • The ones that keep in touch
 Even if you guys aren’t nearby each other, making an effort to keep in touch through facebook, emails, texts and calls will show your friend you are there for them.

  •  They are trustworthy and willing to tell you the truth, even when it’s hard
Good friends don't keep things from us no matter how hard the situation may be,a good friend  is trustworthy..

  • The ones that won’t put you down or deliberately hurt your feelings.
Good friends avoid hurting their friends ,they don't let us down..

  • Good friends will be your mentor
 Its known in order to become a Teacher you first have to be a student, a good friend will always teach you the best things,he will always be there to tell you what is wrong  and what is right..

  • They are willing to stick around when things get tough

  • They will always talk about success with..

  • They encourage you to take risks when it comes to business.
 Risks are a necessary part of life, and they bring a certain adrenaline rush to our lives.

  • They love you because they choose to, not because they feel like they should
  • They are willing to make a tough call
f you think the safety of your friend is at risk, you might need to act without their consent and get help (see the sidebar for where you can seek help). It can be a hard choice particularly when you’re worried about their reaction, but remember that you are acting because you care and you don’t want them to be hurt.

  • They Keep  there promises.
 People hate when we break our promises,breaking a promise is one way to make your friend not to trust you..

  • They are real
 Connect with people whom you value on a deep level if you want to have sustainable, long-term friendships. Invest in people you can be yourself around. If your behavior lacks sincerity, your friendship won't last.

  • They don't let others say bad things about their friends
 Until you've had a chance to hear your friend's side of the story, treat comments that are not supportive as hearsay and rumors. If someone says something that shocks you and doesn't seem like a thing your friend would do or say, then respond with something like, "I know him/her, and that just doesn't sound right. Let me talk to him/her, find out his/her perspective on this. Until then, I would appreciate it if you didn't spread that around."

  • they Watch out for their friends
 If you sense that your friend is getting into some sort of trouble over which they have little control, such as taking drugs, being promiscuous or getting too drunk at a party, help him or her get away from the situation. Don't assume that your friend can handle it alone; this may be the very time that your voice of common sense is needed to wake them from their fugue.
