One of the things I have learnt in my years on earth is the meaning of the word friend. Many use the word loosely without any thought or regard to its true purpose or use.

A friend is not someone who leaves when things gets tough. A friend never turns their back on you or rejoices in your pain. A friend would never wish you harm.

A friend would love you through your pain and celebrate with you when you succeed. A friend is someone you trust with your life and with your darkest secrets. A friend is someone who sticks around when everyone else disappears. Even if you fall out, a friend would still wish you the best in life.

Many people who call themselves friends don’t know the meaning of the word. It takes you being a good friend to know what a true friend is.

Are you a true friend?
