WHAT TO YOU IS a TRUE FRIEND??

Post by southern yankee »

also, who is this person? and why?

Joyce, i have known her since the mid 60's we were in 2nd grade. We would walk through fire for one another. Example= when my father passed. we were having a hard time paying for everything. even though she is having many $$$ problems of her own. she applied for a loan for us. on the condition. we could pay har back. what we could. when we could. i wiil never be able to thank her enough. but that is what i call a TRUE FRIEND. God blesses us with friends like this.:-6:)

I can only speak for myself, but during my lifetime I have had many friends but when it comes to what we might call a TRUE FRIEND, it's a dog. They demand and ask so little of our friendship.

Good call. :)

I have just learned today that a true friend is not one who runs when he finds something about you he doesn't like.

Friendship is cheap these days. It shouldn't be.

To me, a true friend is someone who believes in you even when other people don't. A true friend is consistent in their loyalty and sincerity with you. A true friend doesn't dump you just because he/she has other friends. A true friend never stops caring. A true friend is like warm sunshine on a rainy day. :-6

Being there for you you, even when things are gloom for them.

Caring, but also being upfront when need be.

Sharing in your excitement, even when its not theirs.

Listening and not judging.

accepting me for whom I am and how I look.

I know even if we live over 1,000 miles apart. i can pick up the phone. and she knows just what to say. a true friend is one of the greatest gifts God gives us.

A true friend can accept you exactly the way you are, warts and all - without trying to change you into something that you aren't.

so very true......and you welcome,



other reasons what true friendship is all about? -friends should be there through bad times......which many friends are not.

then some friends expect you to be there when their times are rough.......





Taking time to just hello, how was your day.............



..as everything isn't always about you...........



and saying sorry for something we have done or said.......its a huge one with me.



and lastly.....honesty and trust.

Sometimes we are wrong, but I hope my friends would tell me and advise/guide me.

Someone that shares your bad times.......is a true friend.
