If you immediately had a face and name appear in your head by reading the headline, congratulations – you can consider yourself fortunate.
Because this means that you will always have a person by your side who you can count on. Someone who will never abandon you, no matter what. Someone who will be next to you when the skies darken. Someone who will appreciate you for who you are.
Real friends are hard to find, so if you already have one, make sure you cherish what you have. Make sure they know how much you mean to them and never let them go.
The following is a list of 5 defining signs you have yourself a precious true friend:
1. They are there for you through thick and thin
A real friend never leaves you behind when things take a bad turn. They never leave you to deal with your difficulties on your own. You know you can always count on their love and support, and they know you would do the same for them. Because true friends always have each other’s backs.
2. They accept you with all your imperfections
Real friends don’t want to change you. Because they accept all your good and bad sides. They are at peace with your annoying habits, your little outbursts at times, your fears, and your insecurities. They respect your point of view no matter how much it differs from their own. And that is why you always feel at ease when you’re together.
3. They know all there is to know about you
They know your likes and dislikes. They know your future plans, what you stand for, your goals and aspirations. They know your deepest secrets, your failures, and all the embarrassing stories that you wouldn’t share with anyone else.
4. They are happy when you succeed
Fake friends feel jealousy when you accomplish a goal and when they see that you have found happiness, but true friends will celebrate the high points of your life with you. They are happy when you are happy. Furthermore, they will push you to reach new heights, no matter how ludicrous your dreams may seem to other people.
5. They give as much as you do
You don’t have to chase each other begging to spend time together. Just as you do, they always make time for you and never let you feel abandoned.
They don’t ignore your calls and messages, because no matter how busy they are, they always find the time to message, call back and ask how you are and what’s new in your life.
