But first a few words about friendship
Psychologists and other researchers of social issues often pay attention to non-romantic relationships. But what is friendship really? Although the question seems trivial, it is hard to answer unequivocally. For everyone, friendship can mean something different. Each of us has unusual needs. However, there are some correlations. It is possible to distinguish certain characteristics that will prove important for everybody. Are you curious? Just keep reading.
The new “Would You Rather” test. Can you make it to the end? Invite your friend to join the game!
This is an extremely important trait for friendship. A person who cannot accept your different opinion and sees only his perspective will not be a good friend. Such people can easily lower self-esteem and unfairly impose their views. They often turn out to be manipulators. They can also mock the other person in an unpleasant way. In contrast, understanding friends are a real treasure. No matter what problem you are facing, they will listen to you and support you. This is the best quality for difficult times. Each of us showing at least a little understanding changes this world for the better.
The person who wants to be your friend must be there simply for you. If he expects some benefit, it will not be a trusting relationship. If someone likes you solely for your material things, money, fame or social position, it’s better to let it go. Such a person will probably leave on his own anyway if he doesn’t get what he wants. This is why unconditional affection is very important.
This is also an essential quality. Good communication in any relationship is fundamental. If someone often lies, we simply lose trust in them. Frequent excuses and little lies can also indicate a lack of interest on his part. And if someone is not interested in us, why should we want to hang out with him? A person who can confess even a difficult truth to you is brave and worth appreciating.
To some extent, this is a desirable trait. Everyone happens to make mistakes. Not all of them are unforgivable. Therefore, it is worth bearing in mind that the person with whom we want to be friends should not be too stubborn. Someone who gets offended about anything and stops talking will bring a lot of stress and guilt into our lives. Any problems and misunderstandings are better resolved through healthy communication. We, too, should behave forgivingly to our friends, especially if they had no bad intentions.

Children as young as several years old are already entering their first friendships. Connections with peers are very important for children and teenagers. It is very common that we make best friends when we are children. We start by playing together and borrowing each other’s toys. Then we grow up together and struggle with similar problems. And if we survive this time, it is likely to be a lifelong friendship. When we have known someone since childhood, the bond is then exceptionally strong. We know each other like family and our families usually know each other too. Being at each other’s homes makes us familiar with the other person’s environment. This allows us to get to know and understand that person better, and this is the first step to a healthy relationship.
Parents usually expect their children to make new friends at school, because they know how important it is. We need friends. They are what make our lives better and more colorful, especially at a young age. Let’s remember that first experiences are very valuable, also when it comes to friendship. First arguments and breakups will help us understand how to deal with conflicts. So let’s not underestimate childhood friendships, because they are the strongest.
How do you take care of your friends?
Friendship can be just as difficult as a romantic relationship. Maintaining it requires some kind of commitment from both sides. If we care about our friends, we should pay attention to certain aspects to keep them with us for as long as possible. First of all, we should remember that true friendship takes time. We need to persevere with each other and devote enough time to the other person. A close bond doesn’t come out of nowhere, it requires constant work. Second is acceptance. It is known that similarities keep us together. Shared interests and similar opinions are good for any relationship. However, it is impossible to find two identical people. We need to give ourselves permission for this dissimilarity. We don’t have to agree on everything, but let’s respect each other’s opinions. Third, we must not be pushy or possessive. We should not require the other person to spend every spare moment with us. Everyone has their own life and responsibilities. Let’s give each other space so that each can grow independently. Excessive jealousy is also not desirable. Our friend also has the right to meet other people just like us. Let’s keep this in mind!
