Being a Good Friend

Updated: Jun 22

“A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.” -Walter Winchell

We all have someone come to mind when we here that quote. Whether it’s your cousin, brother, sister, someone you go to high school with something else.

The question we will address here is “how can I be a good friend?”

The intelligent people at psychology today have theorized that there are 13 characteristics of a good friend.

They start with “I am” and are meant to be asked by you about yourself.

How much do you agree with each statement?

I (am)…


Trustworthy

Honest with others



Generally very dependable



Loyal to the people I care about



Easily able to trust others



Experience and express empathy for others



Able to be non-judgmental



A good listener



Supportive of others in their good times



Supportive of others in their bad times



Self-confident



Usually able to see the humor in life



Fun to be around


How well do you think you did?

Good? Bad? Somewhere in between?

It's good to ask yourself these questions on occasion to see of you've made any progress.

Being all of these things can be difficult, but being able to build a true bond can be a life altering experience.
