Friendship =]
Tips for the Ultimate Friendship:
(Another Journalism Assignment)

Friendship is just a part of life's fabric for most humans, so much so we tend to take them for granted. They're just there; that person we confide in, support and are supported by. The importance of these relationships can be lost in their norm status. But they can prove more valuable than family and partners over the course of a lifetime and are worth the work to keep them healthy and alive.

10 Tips on Keeping a Healthy and Happy Friendship:

  1. Admit it & Apologize. (It's never a bad thing to admit that you're wrong.)
  2. Keep it Honest. (What better trust will a friendship have than friends that are always honest with eachother?)
  3. Don't take Advantage. (Just because your best friend is willing to do anything for you, doesn't mean that you should ask for EVERYTHING. Don't get greedy. You could actually lose them one day.)
  4. Let them Make their Own Decisions. (There's nothing worse than a bossy friend.)
  5. Keep Your Promises. (This keeps the trust factor up. They'll always have someone to rely on.)
  6. Have fun. (Self explanatory. Keep the friendship exciting and full of excitement.)
  7. Remain in Contact. (Staying in touch helps build a bond, no matter how far away they are.
  8. Maintain Healthy Competion. (This will have both of your motivated. But don't take the competing to the point that it gets too serious.)
  9. Be Supportive. (Let your friend know that they're great and can accomplish anything they set their heart to. Supposrt their goals and dreams.)
  10. Focus on the Positive. (This leaves you with nothing bad to say.

    i like the first one, when you know you started something with your friend, make sure you apologize because it can keep a healthy friendship or break a healthy relationship.

    I like how you show morals and principles in your tips. It's very nice and eye-opening. I've so heard that quote like a billion times and that is very true my friend very true. Cute picture

    Wow. Good list! I agree with them all, but "Admit it & Apologize" and "Let them Make their Own Decisions" stick out for me. You can be influential in your pal's decisions, but don't decide for them.

    DEFINITELY agree that you shouldn't take advantage of your friends. A lot of people think that doing things for people means that they are being good people and good friends. But that is simply not the case.

    ME too Mee too, i agree too. i like admit and apologize because i think that it ruins alot of good friendship because pride and other stupid stuffs get in the way of whats truly important. i guess people don't realize it though.
