The Key to an Awesome Friendship
You will probably encounter different kinds of friends in your life. There are the friends that you hang out with every once in a while, the social media friends (I hardly know half of those people), and the friends you can’t live without.
Great friends, the kind you can’t live without, will always be there for you.
They will not only be there to listen to you when you are having a hard time, but they will be there to speak up for you when you need someone on your side. They are the ones who will encourage and support you through your dumbest mistakes and best successes. They will make fun of you along the way, but it’s all out of love.
But what is the key to an awesome friendship?
The key to an awesome friendship is: Being a friend back!
If you have a friend that supports you, then you need to support THEM. If they listen to you, then make sure you listen to THEM. That is how you build good relationships with your friends.
Do you have friends like that in your life?
I am my dorky, awkward, sarcastic self around my best friends. We can laugh hysterically together. But we can also tell each other anything and we always have each other’s backs.
Do you have friends that you can totally be yourself with? My best friend knows that I am a complete nerd and she loves me for it (even when I dance awkwardly in public).
What if you don’t know anyone like that?
If you don’t know someone like that, the awesome friend must be you.
That’s right. YOU can be that kind of friend to someone. Listen to them. Be there for them. Laugh with them. Support them. Show them what a good friend looks like. You have a chance to change someone’s life by just being friends with them. You may think that is ridiculous, but I dare you to try it. Find someone who needs friendship and just be there. They might turn out to be an awesome best friend. I dared you, now you have to do it!
