A friend sent me this picture. I love it because it’s so true.
Real friends are a rare gift to be cherished.
You know who I’m talking about…
The friend you talk to every day
The friend who you haven’t seen in over a year, but when you get together it’s like you just saw each other yesterday.
The friend who knows your weakness, but shows you your strengths.
The friend who knows your insecurities, but highlights your possibilities.
The friend who loves and respects you enough to be honest with you and tell you what you might not want to hear.
The friend who wouldn’t dream of kicking you while you’re down.
The friend who lifts you up when you’re stumbling.
The friend who would never revel in your failures, but celebrates your joys.
The friend who you feel comfortable being a complete dork around.
The friend who you crack up laughing with because you know what each other is thinking without having to say a word.
The friend who will not judge you when you share your secrets.
The friend who will not talk smack about you to others.
The friend who sticks with you through the good times and the bad.
The friend you can be yourself around and make mistakes in front of without fear of judgement.
The friend who you may have differing opinions with, but you both see that as a way of understanding how someone else may feel, instead of an obstacle to the friendship.
The friend who does not pretend as if everything is okay in your relationship when it’s not, and who cares enough to work it out.
The friend who is sincere.
The friend you truly can trust.
The friend who makes you smile.
Those types of true friends are special.
Pass the love along to your friends!
