A Supportive friend is:

  • They are always there for you when humanly possible.
  • If you do something wrong then they should tell you that what you are doing is not right.
  • If others are against you for no reason your friend should stand by your side and never falter.
  • Friends should share secrets and dreams of what they would like in their life and those secrets should remain between the two friends and not discussed with other friends.
  • A friend should not lie.
  • A supportive friend is there through the laughter and the tears and give a shoulder to cry on.
  • A friend should try to make you feel more confident when your confidence is weak.
  • If your friend and you have a disagreement and do not talk for a bit then one or the other should try to come to terms with the problem and either apologize (even if not wrong) in order to keep a good friendship healthy.
  • A good friend should cheer you on to do the best at something that you want to do.
  • A supportive friend does not cast you aside if they make new friends and always keeps in touch with you or introduces you to some of their new friends.

It is important to know that no human is 100% perfect and that each of us make mistakes, but we learn from mistakes and it's better to be honest than dishonest in a friendship.

Friendship is a state of being in which you are concerned not with what you can get from the other person, but in the real advancement of the other person. And the real advancement is, discovering the truth. So a friend is a friend only if he brings you closer to the truth; in whose presence you become less agitated, in whose presence a silence comes. Not the one who keeps gossiping with you.
A real friend who can hold mirror to you, who can really help you see yourself, not the one who makes you more and more unconscious. Not one who helps you in keeping a dream world around you.
'Find out such friends, and then there will be real magic. But you cannot find them if you keep yourself occupied with friends of this kind. You will first have to create space. You will first have to throw the dirt away. You will first have to create a space in which that real friend can enter.
