Who is my Friend?
Three qualities I look for in a friend are honesty, participation, and respect.
Honesty is the baseline for all healthy friendships. An honest friend is always with me in all my chosen paths and helps me when I need. She is as a clear mirror and prepared to advise me, whether I'm right or wrong. When I'm right, she supports me. When I 'm wrong, she stops me and tells me the truth. She always remembers me with nice memories and never backbites me or allows anyone to do. Honesty protects friends from gossips said about them and keeps the friendship strong and lasts forever.
The second quality I like in my friend is participation. Friendship usually dies if it depends only on fun and entertainment. Friends should practice works together to get fun and benefit. For example, studying for a test is beneficial and enjoyable at the same time. Swimming in a sunny day is a funny sport that leaves nice feelings in friends' hearts. Going to lunch with friends or walking in the park refresh emotions and give hearts power to confront life problems. Friends know each other more than before, deepen the friendship, and improve their personalities as they participate something together.
Finally, respect between friends is an important quality that reinforces friendship. Friends should recognize the differences between them allowing each to be her own person. Appreciating the other's values builds the friendship strongly. It is indeed not the similarities that bind friends together, but it is their ability to accept their differences and to be able to expect mutual affection from each other. Respect develops a level of trust between friends and once that is established, they can like each other and share personal thoughts and secrets.
