I am generally a loner, but lately, I have been learning the value of good friendships.

What advice would you give me about this?

Many "friendly" Blessings, Jai

The very best friend is the one that you know will give you the truth, and not placate you with pretty lies.

This is the person that accepts you for who you are. They may not like some of the things you say or do, but they will support you and help you and, although they are compassionate and sympathetic, they will willingly turn their back on you, if that is what you need to grow.

Just to be there without judgement no matter what is happening -unconditional love. A shoulder to lean on and an ear to listen to when needed, willingness to celebrate and congratulate when things are going good.Also a willingness to be honest and dish out tough love if that is what is required to help the person grow. A complete acceptance of the other person - the good, the bad and the ugly:-)
