To be a good friend does not have to mean you have to sacrifice an eye or a limb to prove your loyalty. Being a good friend doesn’t mean you always have ready advice to give. You don’t have to always understand what your friend is going through. You do not have superpowers to make all their problems go away. But what is great about a good friend is that when you need him or her, they come to your side and listen. A good friend is always willing to be there when you need them. And having someone by your side during the lowest points of your life is very important. That is the true value and essence of friendship.
