Have you ever wondered how good can you be as a friend? What does it really takes you to be a good friend? There is no better way to spread the fragrance of friendship than to be a real good friend for the world. The secret involves certain very simple arts to be mastered.
“To Be Trusted Is a Great Compliment Than Being Loved” -- George MacDonald
Yes! It is very important to trust your friends and be trusted. You cannot be a good friend if you do not learn how to trust him or her. Words of love would be meaningless and hollow without trust. Friendship is a deep bondage and more you trust your friend, the more you will be able to reach closer to his or her heart.
On the other level you should also be trusted. So never do things that can break your friends' trust on you. “Trust is like a vase ... once broken, though you can fix it the vase will never be same again.“
“Touch seems To Be As Essential As Sunlight” -- Diane Ackerman
No doubt about it. Touch is really the most potent tool that gives strength to the relationship. Touching the shoulder of your friend is really like the first morning beam touching the grass after a long cold night -- especially during your friend's bad time.
Giving your friend a hearty hug in greeting is another way to come closer and let him or her reach close to your heart.
“Thoughts Are The Shadows Of Our Feelings..” -- Friedrich Nietzsche
We can share our thoughts by sharing our feelings. It is by sharing your feelings that you can open up yourself to your friends and let them know about you. If you cannot share your feelings with your friends you cannot grow a golden relationship and can never be a good friend. So share your feelings and let your friend share their feelings with you without judgment.
“Learn The Wisdom Of Compromise, For It Is Better To Bend a Little Than To Break” -- Jane Wells
To be a good friend you are required to learn to compromise. Every individual has different way of thinking. Unless you can compromise you cannot be a good friend. Compromise and let your friends know that it is better to bend a little than to break.
“A Friend Is The One Who Comes In When The Whole World Has Gone Out” -- Grace Pulpit
Another key for being a good friend is to be supportive of the person. You should be with him or her when he or she has lost all and everything. Support can be emotional. Just lend your shoulder to your friend when he or she is discouraged. Extend your hand to lift them up from any types of crunch.
To be a best friend all that you need is to be like a worst tenant. Enter into their hearts, stay in there and don't vacate.
