A Good Friend

“Qualities I look for in a friend”

I look for many different qualities when I am choosing my friends. The following are the most important qualities my friends must posses for us to have a good friendship.

The first quality I look for is loyalty. An example of this would be me having a fight with a mutual friend of ours. A good friend would not take sides and would stay out of the argument. They also would not denounce me to the friend I was quarreling with. Another example of a loyal friend would be one that was there for me through the good times and the bad. A loyal friend wouldn’t stop being my friend just because of a physical change such as braces or me developing a handicap such as a wheelchair. My friend wouldn’t stop being my friend because I didn’t have many material things or my family was not “well off”.

A second quality I look for is honesty. A situation where a friend could display this quality would be when I asked them to watch my purse. A good friend would never go through my purse or steal anything in it. An honest friend would also keep a close eye on my purse and not let anyone else go through it or steal anything form it.

Another instance where a good friend could display their honesty is if I were to tell my friend confidential information. A friend would not tell any of my secrets to other people. Also if any of the confidential information were to “slip out”, an honest friend would admit their wrong doing and apologize for the mishap.

There are many additional qualities I look for in my friends but loyalty and honesty are the two most important to me. I also try to practice these qualities so I can be a good friend in return.
