14 Days of Things that I am Thankful For! Friends (Post #3)
Today I am thankful for my friends. I have had a few good friends and today I just wanted to say thanks!
My two best friends are just awesome. Sometimes we take our friends for granted. We think that they should like us because we are cool or that we agree on the same things. Now we all know what true friendship is but how often do we express it ourselves? Here is my list for true friendship:
1) You don't have to "fix" them. In other words, you accept them for who they are and they do the same for you.
2) The silences aren't awkward. You can just be together.
3) You can share anything with them without being judged. They may not agree with your opinion but they can understand where you're at.
4)You don't keep score. You aren't trying to beat them. And you don't keep a money value on your friendship. For example, if you go out to eat and pick up the tab the other person doesn't feel like they need to "pay you back" dollar for dollar. They probably will just pick up the tab next time. (Note: if the other person is a "blood sucker" and never pays then you might want to reconsider this one.) ;)
5)You family thinks your friends are good for you. They aren't scared that your "friend" will leave you stranded in the middle of a desert without a way to get back. And your friend likes your family too.
6)You have open communication. You maintain the relationship.
Anyway, that is a little of what I think makes a good friend. So if you don't have one go out and find one. You'll be glad you did.
