    Too Good?

    Don't mean for the title to sound conceided or something, it's just, I'm the kind of person that would literally go to the ends of the earth for someone I care about. I'm always thoughtful about friends and I'll buy things for them sometimes just because it reminds me of an...

    I will try my very best to be a good friend.

    I am a firm believer that you should take friendships as seriously as relationships. Because when times get tough, your friends are there for you. You should be a friend worth having, because then you know your friends have a good friend at their side

    Saved My Friend

    Yes. A few weeks ago my best friend was in her 'shark' mood. Basically if you got in her 1 metre zone, you were in trouble. Hence why we call it her 'shark' mood. Anyway, later that evening I got a call from her telling me she needed some help. So, she got home that day at 4 o...

    I Try to Be

    I would hope that my friends know that they can count on me for anything. If I can help in any way, I will. Even to lend an ear when they need to talk, sometimes being quiet is the best thing. Just to let them know there is someone listening, without judgement.

    You Are a Good Friend Because You're Honest Like it or not, your friends are going to hear the truth from you. You know that the truth hurts, but living a life of lies is much worse. So while you're definitely kind and supportive, you don't pull any punches with your friends...
