20 Ways You Can Be The Best Friend Ever

6:32:00 AM

For me, I believe that having true friends is a blessing but having a best friend is even more a big blessing.I know I am blessed because I am surrounded with the best of friends ever. Nowadays, I know it's hard to find people whom you can count on to through the years and yes, God gave me special angels that I consider as my Best Friends or BFF for life :)
They have been really good to me and in return, I should also be their very own BFF for life. 

With this in mind, I created my very own list which you can also follow in order for you to be 

  1. Be who you truly are. Never impress anyone even your friends just to show off. What counts is that they accept you for who and what you are, it is much important if you are natural because they will love you for that.
  2. Keep a secret. Once a friend shared something that is really important to him/her, treasure it as if it were your own. Don't gossip it around with other people because he/she trusted you enough not to let the whole world know about it. Just you. 
  3. Help each other grow. Yes, you can be independent too but no man is an island. You can both help each other by means of advice with what have you experienced and more.
  4. Show up! One of the pettiest arguments of friends are people who never show up even after promising that they will show up. Not unless there's a valid reason for it, you must also think twice before ditching your friend over laziness or something else.
  5. A promise is a promise. Once you have compromised, you must really do it and besides you have made a promise to a person close to you, your best friend which is why you should even more not break your word.
  6. Forgive and Forget. There are some petty quarrels that you can just let it go. There are those that needed time and space but surely, since this person is important to you, it is best to just talk, forgive and move forward. 
  7. Be Honest. If you feel that your friend is making a bad decision then tell him/her. If you think her'his hair cut is awful, be honest. 
  8. Be Happy for them. Be sincerely happy if they have any form of success with what they love doing. Congratulate them and share the same happiness with positive attitude. 
  9. Be a good listener. Admit it or not but we all love people who listens to us no matter what the topic may have been. A true friend ask how your friend is and listens up till he/she answers. 
  10. Compliment each other. Isn't it nice to start the day right with a beautiful compliment from someone who is close to you?A true friend will never get shy blurting out if the dress looks amazing on her or vice versa. 
  11. Be loyal. A friend is someone who stays with you even if the world collides. Be like that and you will also experience the same.
  12. Be interested. If you are really friends, you must know what his/her likes. Give time in knowing what your friend loves to do or things that make him/her happy.
  13. Be present during tough times. True friendship isn't about being there when it’s convenient; it’s about being there when it’s not.
  14. Hang out and make some time. We all have to be busy with our studies or work and family but at the end of the day, we need friends who we can talk to about the silliest things, that where you will come in.
  15. Always be there. Be there even if you are miles away. With the technology nowadays, it is easier to take some time and be updated with each other.
  16. Respect their decisions. You can give them advice and more ut at the ed of the day, they will make huge life changing decisions and you will be there to support them in every way.
  17. Enrich their life. Guide your friend to the right path, be a role model not a bad influence. 
  18. Make them smile or laugh! Who wouldn't love being with someone who makes them smile or laugh even on hard times?:-)
  19. Appreciate their efforts and never expect anything in return.
  20. Last but not the least ~ A REAL FRIEND CALLS.   Take the time today to call a friend and thank him/her for being there for you, there is nothing wrong with telling a friend you are thankful for them, and hey, it's a great thing to hear, so make a friend's day by letting them know that you care.
With GoUnli20, it’s now easy to call without a need for a prefix and it’s just P20 for unli calls, 15mb of mobile surfing, and 20 texts to all networks! Kaya if you need a friend, don’t call me, I’ll call you!

One should never overlook those friends, they are few and far between, a good friend is worth more than gold, remember that, keep them close, always by your side, acknowledge them and love them, seek to be the best friend you can be, for good friends are hard to come by and truly, as the Beatles song goes, "I get by with a little help from my friends", taken from the movie "Across The Universe"
