Know Your Real Friends



As we grow up, we learn who are our real friends. In some point of life, we know it’s not 100 or 1000s friends, only a good quality of friend circle is enough for life. Even a single friend is better than pretenders. Let’s have a look at 11 ways to know our real friends:

1] Finds Mistakes

Real friend will point out your mistakes. When you publish your work with mistakes, most viewers will make fun of you. A real friend will try best to make sure nothing goes wrong in your work. He/She will always give you a genuine response. Sometimes what clothes you wear and what makeup you put on may not get along well on you. They won’t appreciate your clothes or accessories to make you feel good. They don’t want people to crack jokes on your attire. They will give you the honest reply.

2] Listening Skills

They will listen to your stories with interest. Some friends will not bother to listen to you. Some will do the acting of listening. Some will only listen and forget it. But, real friends will listen, response and remember it.

3]No Misunderstanding

There will not be any misunderstanding for not being there physically present during bad or good times. They will understand, we all have life. They understand we may not share every bits of our life issues, but that does not mean we don’t value them.

4]No assumes

They will not assume your response as offensive. During calls or messages/chats, a staunch friend will not consider your any response as offensive reply. They don’t overthink bad about you when you don’t response to their calls or reply to their chat.

5]No bulk sorries

Some people repeat making mistakes. They keep lying but never improve after apologizing too. A true friend will not lie to you. Thus, there won’t be lots of sorries and forgiveness. There won’t be much emotional hurts and burdens in mind.

6]No drama

They won’t seek for your attention all the time. They will give you space. They won’t argue deliberately often on silly things. They will neither dominate nor manipulate you for their benefits. A true friendship can never be a toxic relationship.

7] No gossips

They will gossip with you but will not gossip about you. They will not help rumors about you to spread. They will fight with others for spreading fake stories about you.



8]Know the limit of jokes

A real friend will make fun of you. They will love cracking jokes on you all the time. But, they know the fine line of not hurting you with those words.

9] Freedom

With real friends, you are yourself. You don’t need to impress them. You don’t have to look good. You don’t have to be formal. You don’t have to think twice before saying anything.  There is no place for offending list.

10] Nurtures you

They don’t want you to be a bad person. They don’t want you to follow the wrong paths. They don’t want you to pursue the things that can hurt you. They don’t want you to hurt anyone else. When you are weak, they will bring out the confidence in you. Whenever they are around you, they will take care of your health. They only want to see good things happen to you and hence, they will always support you.

11] Trust Wins

When any third person tries to break the relation, they don’t believe them easily. They will discuss the matter softly with you rather than showing hatred towards you. This is the reason; trust can’t be broken up easily.

When one has got all those qualities, there is a sensible relationship. An individual possessing these qualities shows up the maturity to manage the friendship smoothly.

Which quality does your real friends have? Are you a real friend to someone? 😊
