Friends have a huge impact on your happiness in life whether it is friendships with family members, partners, co-workers, girlfriends or guy friends, or even the pets we love. Some friendships last a lifetime from the time you were kids and other friendships are new and fresh.
A true friend is someone who is there for you no matter what. Someone who can listen to you and show compassion when it’s needed. There are different types of friendships because each individual is different and has their own personality traits.
There are many forms of friendship and they vary from person to person. Characteristics that are important include kindness, affection, honesty, loyalty, generosity, forgiveness, sympathy, and other important emotions. It is essential that friends enjoy each other’s company, trust each other, and are able to express one’s feelings to others without the fear of judgment.
Friends celebrate special occasions, stand with you during difficult times, show happiness at your success and overall share a bond that comes from your soul. Friendship does require a commitment to communicate and nurture the relationship. It is a rare and valuable gift to be able to call someone a friend.
