You Are a Good Friend Because You're Accepting

No matter what a friend says or does, you try your best to understand it.

And your friends feel like they can tell you anything. You don't judge.

You know that friendship is a journey - with a lot of ups and downs.

If you and a friend grow apart, you get over it quickly... and leave the potential for future friendship open.

You tend to have many friends from many walks of life. Anyone you meet is could become a friend.

In fact, you are especially interested in people who are a little different than you. Seeing life from another perspective is something you cherish.

Your friends need you most when: They can't turn to anyone else with their secrets

You really can't be friends with: Dogmatic, stubborn people

Your friendship quote: "Love is blind, but friendship closes its eyes."

What Makes You a Good Friend?

Hello there! Sorry for the lack of posts but I've been spending time with family, and today with a good old friend - old in that we've been friends a long time, not that she herself is old! Except that we are getting older. There's something about hanging out with someone you've known for ages. Even if you haven't seen them in a year and a half, you can start right back as if there hasn't been any time apart at all!

I have a friend who I met in first grade. She always introduces me as her oldest friend-quiet funny when we were in our 20's. Now that we are in our 60's and when she says I'm her oldest friend-people just say ok! When you can just pick up like you've never been apart is a wonderful friendship. Happy New Year!

You're right - you know a friendship is good when you can just pick it right up again.
Have a blessed 2008 and I look forward to reading more of your journey.
