Love is as much a feeling as it is an action, and when friends love one another, they act. It’s more than just talk. They follow up what they say with actions. They never say one thing and do another.
A friend isn’t someone who finds time for you, they make time for you. Even when they become busy, they’ll take time out of their lives to spend with you doing things you love doing. There’s no such thing as a true friend who you never see because “they just got so busy.”
Your real friends won’t ever ask you to be anything but your true self. They love you and they don’t want to control you. They don’t even feel like they have to give you permission. They just let you be you.
They’re going to be there for you in the worst of times, but they also want to see you learn from it and grow as a person. They’re not afraid to call you on your BS, but they’ll support you as you develop anyway.
