What Makes a Friend?

New people come and go everyday of our lives. Those who stay are friends.

But what makes a friend?

I think for me, the main things are that you have to be someone who:

  1. Listens and considers my opinions, thoughts, and feelings
  2. Cares enough to look out for me and give advice, but lets me make my own decisions
  3. Helps me grow as a person

What do you think? Do you go by the same criteria?

    I think those are good categories, and will add one more, since it’s got to be mutual:
    A friend is also someone who trusts me to do all those things for them.

      I was just about to add the characteristic of trust! Good thinking :)
