True Friendship

is the kind where you can not see someone for a long time but you know they love you and when you DO hear from them, it is like nothing has changed.

It is also about unconditional acceptance.

You can love someone but maybe not like what they do. None the less, it is important to not be judgmental. If they are doing something destructive to themselves, then by all means speak up, but as a true, caring friend, not in a harsh, mean way. I have friends who are into things I want no part of BUT they are not hurting themselves or anyone else. I love them and accept them as they are and they feel the same way about me and do not feel upset because I choose not to participate in some of their activities and it goes both ways.

To be a real friend to anyone, you have to be accepting.

Or at least this is what I have learned to be true in my life and in my circle of friends...

I whole-heartedly agree. I follow the same principle. I also have a flailing arms philosophy that was realized when one of my friends put it so perfectly. It's on my profile in the "About Me" :3<br />
