i like your definition of what a friend is, should be, and all through out of life. TonyASmith, i’m re-blogging this piece, my friend … thanks!

Tony A. Smith

A friend is someone you share parts of your life with – both the good times and the bad.

A friend is there for you no matter what you might be going through.

A friend is not there to criticize and condemn.

A friend is there to uplift and support.

A friend tells you the truth about something you might be doing wrong, but they do it in a way that does not defeat you when you are down.

A friend shares the laughter of life and the crying times as well.

A friend understands and cares.

A friend shares your hopes and does not shatter your dreams.

A friend is someone you learn the lessons of life with along the way.

Sometimes a friend talks things over with you.

Sometimes a friend just listens and understands.
