Good friends always make life seem so much easier and better. In our busy lives, at times when you feel bogged down and isolated, it is your friends who come through. There is no need to give out definitions of a true friend or list out qualities that are synonymous, since the answers are subjective. However, this will give you an idea of a good friend.
Be it one of the dullest days of your life while you are killing time doing absolutely nothing, fighting one of the toughest battles you've had to endure, or be it one of your most memorable moments like your graduation or your birthday, friends are always with you.
If you look hideous in that gaudy dress you bought last week - a true friend will always tell you so! Honesty is indispensable in any relationship. True friends who never hesitate to speak up their minds, are ready to give you a taste of the bitter truth - but they'll either sugarcoat it - or help you cope with it!
Often, there comes a time when two friends are competing for the same thing - at times like these, a true friend will never get jealous, but will never let a competition affect your friendship.
Friends are all this and much more. They are a helping hand, a comforting shoulder to lean on, a patient ear to listen to you, and most importantly, a warm and loving hug to embrace you!
