10 Signs of a True Friend
We all have friends in our lives but only a few of them stick around for a long time or become really close to you. Some friends are only there for the good times and not the bad. In this age of social media and internet, people make hundreds of friends online but in real life they are close to only a few. Some friends in real life can turn out to be worse than those you’ve made online. We need real friends who will be there for us through thick and thin, or when we just need to share our thoughts with someone. Here are a few signs that show what a real and true friend is like.
1. They accept you for who you are
Everyone is a complex human being, with both good and bad features. All we need in life is someone to accept us as we are and love us for all our flaws. That’s what a true friend does, they will accept you for who you are and never try to change you.
2. In sickness and in health
Sure, those are vows for a married couple, but true friends are also always there for you no matter if you are having the worst time or the best time of your life. They will stick with you through it all, no matter what happens.
3. Happy for you
The biggest sign of a real friend is that they will never get jealous if something goes right for you. When something good happens to you and you share it with them, they get very happy for you because they truly want the best for you in life.
4. Kindred spirits
True friends are those that you can share anything with. You feel the most comfortable around them and are not afraid to be your true self in front of them. They know things about you that no one else does because you trust them with all your secrets.
5. Not one-sided
Some people are only willing to listen to you and be there for you as long as it is convenient for them. A true friend, however, will drop everything for you. You may not reach out to them but they also communicate. You do not have to chase them for friendship. They talk to you because they enjoy spending time with you not because they are tolerating you.
6. Safe haven
When you are with them, you feel the happiest and most alive. True friends will never make you feel agitated, stressed or upset. They make you happy and you know that if you are not in a good mood, they can cheer you up immediately.
We all need someone to help tell us when something is not right. True friends will give you their honest opinion whether good or bad. If they think something is not good for you and that it would not work for you, they will tell you. You trust their opinion and take it into consideration because you know they want the best for you.
Every friendship has its ups and downs. You can get into a fight with your friend and words can be said that neither of you mean. A true friend will not stay mad at you, they will forgive you. You can do something bad and they would never judge you.
9. Behind your back
You will never hear from anyone that your friend said something about you or told someone something you told them in secrecy. True friends will never talk about you behind your back. When they do talk about you it is only to say how great you are.
10. Inside jokes
What is a friend without some inside jokes? True friends share so many memories with each other that they develop many inside jokes. You always have the best laugh with them because you both have the same sense of humor and experiences to joke about.
