Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.
– Helen Keller
Friends are important. It doesn’t matter how lovely your family is, friends are still important. I’m not talking about just casual acquaintances who may accompany you for a trip to the bar, or a shopping trip. I am talking about friends you value as important people in your life, friends who would leave a hole behind where they to walk out of your life.
Each of us have different perception of friendships and what makes each of our friends special. But regardless of the motley crew of people you may call friends, there is likely to be some common thread.
So my question today is, what is the one quality that you value the most in your friends?
I, for example, value loyalty. Sure, there are other things I value. All of my friends are intelligent. Many of them have a good sense of humour. Most of them are kind, generous people. Most of them are positive, life loving people. All of those, while important traits, are not as important to me as loyalty, because it’s their loyalty that gives me faith in them as people who would stick by me through thick and thin. It’s the loyalty that makes them special as my friends.
What is the one quality that you value the most in your friends? One that is important to you above the rest?
