Each and every human being has friends in their lives, however, not all of them can be called real or true friends. To have a real friend is something unique that everyone should treasure in their hearts, because it is one of the most important things one can have in one’s life that can help him or her grow as a person and enjoy life to the fullest.
Here are three revealing signs showing that you’ve found a real friend:
1. A real friend is brutally honest.
One of the basic characteristics of a real friend is that he or she is always honest with you. A real friend will point out the truth to you, no matter how inconvenient it might be at times. A real friend is a person you can trust for his or her opinion and absolutely know that there is no intention of lying behind his or her words.
2. A real friend always finds time for you.
Another trait of a real or true friend is that he or she will always make time in his or her life to be with you. Real friends, even when they have a loaded schedule, will always stand by your side when you need them, and will never find excuses to avoid meeting you.
3. A real friend accepts you for who you are.
Lastly but most importantly, a real friend will accept you just the way you are. No matter your imperfections, a true friend will love you unconditionally, fully embracing both the flaws and positive aspects of your personality. With a real friend, you will feel loved and taken care of, without having to first fulfill their expectations or desires.
“Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.” ~Albert Camus
