How to be a Real Friend

How to be a Real Friend
September 18, 2013 CuteCoco

When you read this post title you probably wonder how stupid it is. I mean, how retarded a person can be to not knowing how to be a real friend. Oh well, there are indeed people who seem to need more lesson on this area.


In a friendship, or any relationship for that matter, trust is earned and not gifted. Friendship is about two people grow together and still be understanding to one another no matter how far or big their growth is. It is not a competition to top each other.

In term of your relationship with any human being it is very important to be truthful to yourself and to the other person. A good friend won’t judge you for what you do. By that you shouldn’t judge your friend for what they do too.

Talk it out, ask, reach out, do something when you don’t understand. But don’t assume and make your own conclusion filled of negative accusation. Because a friend doesn’t have to explain himself/herself to you.

Honesty is the pride. Don’t put on that mask and pretend to be someone you are not. Don’t deceive, don’t cover up. Don’t act with completely different agenda playing behind your friend’s back. It’s like you smile at the front but frown at the back. That is two-faced.

Are you a good friend worth to keep? Answer the questions below:

1. Do you lie to your friend a lot?

2. Do you make false excuse just to impress other people?

3. Do you take pride high on yourself and consider others are lower than you?

4. Do you see people with money is more attractive?

5. Do you base your judgement of value on money?

6. Do you have any issue to be honest to your friend?

7. Do you quietly investigate what your friend is doing and then try to defeat that?

If most your answers are YES, you got a real serious issue my dear!

Put away the negativity please. I always try my best to be the most authentic version of myself when I am around people. What about you?

  1. A really good friend is hard to come by. When you find him/her, you should do everything in your power to keep them.

    This is a good list. I have three very very good friends who have been in my life a long time. They all live in different states, so I don’t get to see them a lot, but I sure appreciate them. :)

    I agree with Terry! Good friends are hard to come by. I’ve met a lot of women where I felt it was a give or take relationship. I kept giving, they kept taking, but nothing came back my way. I now only have 1 really good friend in town. She’s been my bff for the past 15 years. I love her to pieces. She’s definitely a keeper :)

      What a fool not wanting to be your friend Theresa! But I hear ya, yes relationship should work both way. I hate it when I keep trying and the other person can’t appreciate it and take me for granted. You are lucky to have a bff. One bff is enough rather than 100 fake ones 😀
