By Akshay

You think you have got some very cool best friends, but did you ever gave this thinking a second though? If your answer is a “Yes”, you might not be having a cool best friends as you think. Why? Cause, if they were such a good friend, then, you shouldn’t have doubted about it even for a millisecond of time.

Having a best friend is the most important task in life, as they are the ones with whom you share all your joy, sorrows and some very private secrets. When you have a lot of friends, it becomes really difficult to know, who is being true to you and who is just another FAKE friend.

In this world, you can find more FAKE friends who portrays themselves as if they are your best friend forever, you seriously need to keep away from such energy suckers.

To make sure that you stay in a positive environment that is built for your success, ensure that you Best Friends (As you think!) aren’t guilty of these ten things. If he/she is your best friend, they will never do these ten things:

Best Friends

1# They remain true to your back

Yes, best friends (true one) will never gossip about you on your back. They say whatever they feel like on your face and not behind your back.

For them, speaking what they believe in, at your face isn’t a hard task. They know that, if you are his/her best friend, you will never get offended with their words. Moreover, they will never say anything that might get you offended even in the slightest manner. They simply like whatever you do, and that’s the reason why you are his/her best friend. ?

 

2# They keep your secret, a secret!

Yes, best friends never reveal your secret to anyone, no matter how close they are to that particular individual. When anyone asks them something (private matter) about you, they will simply reply, ‘I don’t know about that’, rather than to reveal the secret. If any of your friend isn’t able to keep your secret, they aren’t worth your trust.

 

3# They don’t argue with you

When was the last time that you had an argument with your best friend? A long time back? And how long did it lasted for? Five – to- Six short minutes? This clearly states that, best friends never fall in an argument. Even if they do, they do it respectfully and always try to end it as soon as possible.

A true best friend should be able to accept you the way you are, you don’t need to become perfect to get a best friend. The world is full of like-minded people and therefore you shouldn’t have to worry about getting a best friend (if you aren’t selfish).

 

#4 They are good listeners

Best Friends Forever

Yes, best friends are very good listeners, they will listen to whatever you tell them – your sorrows, your joy, or your last night call with business partner. No matter, how long you keep on chattering, they will be listening quietly and with great enthusiasm. But, that doesn’t mean, you won’t give your friend a chance to speak.

Simply let the conversation be in a natural flow and stop when either of you are tired of listening/speaking. It is not a good friendship, if only one person does the whole talking and other does none.

 

#5 They never discourage you

Best Friends never say a word that will discourage you from pursuing your dreams, no matter how BIG it might seem. Most of the times, they will encourage you for everything you want. Even if they discourage you for something, it will be in the interest of your own good.

No best friend will be cruel enough to discourage your for something out of jealousy or for his/her own interest. Advice from best friends are always helpful and constructive that will help you to become a better person.

 

#6 They don’t care about your past

Past is gone and cannot be changed and therefore best friends never give a damn about it. In your past, you might not be as good as you are now, but that doesn’t matter.

Best friends believe in living in the present, no matter how colorful or grayed your past might be. Just reveal some of your pasts’ to your current best friend and see how they react to it. You can easily know, what’s on their mind!

 

7# They never leave you alone

Ever saw your best friend leaving you alone and then hanging on with other guys/girls? No, right? Best friends never do that. They will never let you be alone in social gatherings or anywhere.

They know that bring you along to meeting where you don’t know anyone, and then leaving you alone isn’t a good thing to do. Instead, they may leave others to give you a company, or even take you wherever they go!

 

8# They never get jealous

Instead of thinking “Why not me?” best friends are always happy for your success. They don’t waste their time in a pit of jealousy when something good happens to you. They think of your own good and always believe that you reach greater heights.

 

9# They don’t take it for “Granted”

Best friends view friendships from a serious perspective and therefore never take it for granted. They don’t see friendship as a short-term deal that can wiped off when it becomes troublesome. Best friends aren’t there only for watching funny videos, chatting continuously or playing snooker, they are the people who are ready to help you in difficult times without thinking.

Sudden job loss, break-up with girlfriend, fight with someone or anything, they are there to help you cope with the situation. If possible, they will lend their hand to make you feel better.

 

10# They never let you suffer alone

No matter how hard you try to hide your feelings, your Best friend will come to know about it. They will never let you suffer alone, instead they will make their greatest effort to bring a smile on your face. And yeah!
