Friends – how do they have to be?
Friends are valuable in our life. Everyone wants "a real friend" for many reasons. Nobody wants to feel lonely and a friend can help you through this process. You need a friend if you are in trouble, to make fun with, to share experiences, to talk with and to be there for each other. However, it might easy to find a friend; there are many qualities you expect from a real friend.
First of all, you need a friend to share your problems with. You don't want to talk with everyone about the problems you have and a real friend will listen and will try to give some useful advice. Even if you need advice for issues happened in your love life, a friend will listen to your problems and give his/her opinion without interfering in your relationship. Everyone has different opinions and it is important your friend shows respect for your point of view. It is not necessary he/she agrees with your points and can sometimes try to change your mind but he need always to respect you, even if he/she disagrees with you.
Another qualities that are vitals is a friendship are forgiveness and encouragement. Forgiveness is necessary when some problems arise between you and your friend. Everyone makes mistakes and sometimes they say things they don't mean. Forgiveness is important for maintaining your friendship and nobody will lose his or her best friend for a misunderstanding or a small conflict. There are always periods in your life when you feel down or maybe a little bit depressed. A good friend will encourage his/her friend to do things for feeling better. Encouragement is a great attribute every friend should have for helping each other through a difficult process.
No one said finding good friends would be easy, but you can try to be communicative and the rest will come by itself.
