If you had to choose 5 words to describe each of your friends, what would they be? Afterwards, think about 5 things that you value in a good friend. How many qualities do your friends have in common with your list? ✨
In our teenage years, it’s natural to desire being popular and having a lot of friends. However, it may be shocking when we realize that there are only a few people who really have our best interests at heart. This doesn’t mean that anyone is perfect. It just means that it’s better to judge whether a person is your friend or not by how they treat you and who they are as a person, instead of how pretty or popular they are.
Today, I wanted to share 5 Qualities that I Value in a True Friend. If you would like, you can comment your values, either in a friend in general or the friends that you already have, down below!
- Loyalty ✨
Although it’s a sad reality, there are a lot of people that will pretend to be your friend, and then. the next minute, completely ignore you. I really appreciate a friend that sticks by my side, no matter what. Even though we might not always agree, I appreciate people who always have my back, despite the bumps in the road that we might face from time to time.
2. Honesty ✨
Another thing that I love is when a person can admit their mistakes or feelings. I know that no one, except God, of course, is perfect. However, when we do make mistakes, it’s a good thing to apologize for what we did. Also, if a friend of mine feels a certain way about a situation, them explaining to me how they feel allows better communication, and therefore, a better relationship!
3. Humor ✨
Do any of you have that friend that can make you smile, even when your day isn’t going as planned? If so, then you know how awesome of a feeling that is. Personally, being a person who loves to laugh, a friend who knows how to make me giggle, especially when I really need it, is a great friend, in my book.
4. A kind heart ✨
This is pretty practical, but I value a friend who is kind. This not only means that they are kind to me, but that they try their best to be kind to everyone around them. A person who can get along with a majority of people that they meet, and truly has a heart for people is a person that I truly respect.
5. A cheerful attitude ✨
Never have I liked to be around negativity. Therefore, having a friend that is optimistic and just about always in a good mood can make me feel good as well. Positivity is the absolute best policy!
I hope you all enjoyed my list of 5 Qualities that I Value in a True Friend. Remember, a good friend is not a perfect person, but a person who has a good heart and spirit. The inside is what matters most!
Have a wonderful day everyone! ✨
