“Some people go to priests; others to poetry; I to my friends” – Virginia Woolf
If you are looking for a best friend, the best way to go about it is by being one yourself!
However, before we get to the real stuff, we should first note down that loyal, true friendships do not happen overnight.
So, the best thing to do is, being the best friend you have always dreamt of having.
Be the kind of friend that calls when you are thinking of them. Be the kind of friend who texts them when you haven’t talked to each other in a long time. Be the kind of friend that sends texts like “I miss you, let’s hang out and catch up.’ Be the kind of friend that gets presents just to put a smile on their faces. Be the kind of friend that always listens. Be the kind of friend that never breaks promises. Be the kind of friend who is available whenever they need a friend.
Be the friend that shows his or her feelings, showers friends with hugs and attention, and doesn’t hesitate to say “I love you.”
Be the kind of friend that takes care of them when they are sick. Be the kind of friend that tells them not to give up, that encourages them to move forward no matter what. Be the kind of friend that doesn’t leave them behind, even though life is hard sometimes. Be the kind of friend that they can count on to get through hard times. Be the kind of friend that makes time for their friends.
Be the friend that celebrates their achievements with them as if you are their biggest fan.
Be the friend that opens up about the things that are putting you down instead of pulling you back up. A friend that will fight for friendship as if everything is dependent on it.
Because that is what friends are for. Friends fight for friendship no matter what, with all that they have.
Real friends are loving, honest, selfless and they don’t expect anything in return.
Real friends are people that give. Real friends are people that do not expect anything in return. They are the ones who are always available when you need them. They are the ones who know how valuable friendship is.
