“Good friends help you to find important things when you have lost them…your smile, your hope, and your courage.”
This is the definition of a good friend, that person that helps you be the best version of yourself you can be. The version that is quick with a smile, that is full of hope, and that radiates courage. These are the attributes we try to have, and that are nurtured by the right friends.
Being able to bring those qualities out in us is what separates just a so so friend to a good friend, and a good friend to a great friend. Sometimes life can drag us down, but at the same time a friend will be right there to pick us back up.
A good friend doesn’t just like the great parts of you and dislikes the parts that aren’t so pleasing, they see the entire picture and still want to be your best friend.
It’s those friends that are really special and are the ones that you have to hold onto as long as you can.
It’s easy to find friends that only love us for our good traits, so make sure that you pay attention to the friends that have seen your faults and still want to be your friend – they are the ones to treasure.
