Knowing, liking, and trusting a person that brings out the best in both of you.
“The only way to have a friend is to be one.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
“We cannot afford to make new friends at the expense of our old ones.” - William Butler Yeats.
This means: Looking past a person’s exterior to see what is on the inside. Being a good listener. Being willing to compromise. Having the ability to be loving and supportive. Respecting the thoughts and feelings of others.
