A friend is….
A person that sees your needs and offers help even when you don’t ask for it and may not even know you need it.
A person that may offer you their differing opinion about a problem or situation, and even be willing to help you get back on track.
A person that listens to your gripes and complaints and offers you a different view that you might not have thought of.
A person that does not encourage you to gossip, see negative things in people and doesn’t find fun in tearing other people down with you.
A person that keeps you grounded, tells you like it is and isn’t trying to please you.
A person that doesn’t like it when you are unhappy or fail at things either and takes no pleasure in it.
A person that may not be popular, a person that may not be unique, that person you may take for-granted.
You need a true friend, a person of value, someone that you can depend on, someone that you can get angry with and will compromise and always be there.
True friends are hard to come by, so if you find one, don’t let them go.
