What qualities do you value most in friends?


Friendship is a relationship between two people with mutual understanding, care, affection, and love; in other words, it is a relationship of trust, faith, and concern for each other. A friend is always there for you despite all conditions and circumstances and will trust you even if you don’t have faith in yourself. They will always keep promises. Some qualities that a good friend possesses have no bounds. 




The qualities that I appreciate most in a friend are:

  • They give me unconditional love and an excellent sense of humor; they always consider me one of them in their household. 
  • They are honest and willing to take chances and forgive. 
  • Fiends must not lie and be selfish to each other. 
  • Loyalty and kindness are part of what a friend is. 
  • They must be someone that will listen and respond with frequent answers and must have a good heart and intelligence. 
  • My friend must be unpretentious and backbiting. 
  • A good friend will not hold grudges because they know I always have their best interest at heart. 
  • They are there always available, especially in times of need and chaos; they advise and are worried when the need arises. 
  • A good friend will always accept me for who I am without judging. 
  •  They don’t criticize and are always supportive, even if they don’t like your actions. 
  • They blame me when I am wrong and happily support me when I am right. 
  • Not jealous of me but will be happy with my achievements.

A person’s characteristics can reflect in a friend. They bestowed me with unconditional love and a terrific sense of humor and treated me as a family member. The features I like most in a buddy are honesty and willingness to forgive and take chances.

A good friend must have a solid moral character and be someone you can trust. A good friend must have these qualities of a friend – Confidence, compassion, patience, selflessness, and tactfulness.

Friendship is a complex relationship that can be difficult to navigate. Friendships often ebb and flow, and it’s easy for connections to become one-sided. But whether you have one best friend or many acquaintances, friendship remains an essential part of life.

You may have fewer friends than you used to, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t as important as ever. Healthy friendships are beneficial no matter your age; research suggests that close friends can help you live longer and happier.

Friendships add value to our lives in many ways; they bring joy, support, trust, and love into our world. Friends are those who inspire us and make us laugh until we cry. They lift us when we are down, give us courage when we are afraid, and bring peace when we feel unbalanced. To quote Shakespeare: “Friendship… is the home of all happy selfless emotions.”


What It Takes To Keep Your Relationship

It takes two to set up a relationship and it takes two to build it and it takes two to keep up and make that relationship work.  When a ship is one-sided it might sink, for a relationship to balance up it needs harmony and a good, loving and long relationship needs love, understanding, perseverance and patience.  Sometimes there maybe crisis like quarrel, but who is right or wrong does not really matter, but what matters is how both parties handle whatever the situation is maturely and how you share your views, ideas and settle your grievances. Nobody ever expect or plan a fight with our partners and loved ones  in a relationship, in most cases it just shows its ugly head and its very painful especially if it was a serious argument or fight.

We must learn to understand the gravity on which a relationship stands or established, for every good and loving relationship needs love, understanding, trust, perseverance, endurance and patience, the reason being that two unknown people from different background and different orientation and training decide to come together as one really indicates that there could be conflict because sometimes our opinions may not tally which might lead to little quarrel here and there.  The greatest thing we could do as friends and couples in a relationship are to create room for understanding, endurance and patience especially in times of crisis which I believe is the key to a successful relationship.
