To keep a friend YOU must be one. Friendship like any relationship requires give and take. You cannot expect your friend to always listen to you, give advice but you do not have time or interest in him or her. If you do not treat your friend the way you want to be treated then she will start to question if you are truly her friend. Your feelings are not the only ones that matter. Everyone gets stressed sometimes so pay attention and treat your friend with the respect and attention she deserves. Remember, “Love, Laughter and Trust are the Cornerstone of True friendship.” You cannot have a true friendship without those three components.
