 Friendship Last

Friendship is such an important connection you can have with someone, especially in a world that is filled with so much hate and evil. Friendship is honestly a blessing to have in life and should not be taken for granted.

We must all cherish the friends that support us, love us, uplift us and inspire us! Because if we don't acknowledge the effort they're putting in, then we may end up losing a rare, real friendship...

To make sure that you don't lose a true friend, here are some ways you can make a friendship last:

1. Be authentic

Nobody likes a fake friend; don't be that type of 'friend' that pretends to care about you when you're feeling down and promises to not tell anyone about what you're going through - but uses your sadness as gossip material.

Don't give fake support to your friend just to get 'juicy' gossip. Be someone that is trust worthy and don't share personal information with anyone. You should also talk to them in person, face-time them or text them often - even if you can't solve their problem outright, you can still give moral support by listening to their problems.

2. Have fun

I know that this point might be quite obvious, but trust me; there are certain friendships that centre around negativity. Don't spend a lot of time arguing with your friend over little things, use that time to go on some adventures together! this will create many fun memories with your bestie and will strengthen your friendship.

Go on road trips together, have sleepovers, watch your favourite shows or vlogs together, go to the beach together or have a fun girls night out!

3. Support, don't compete

A common problem that ends good friendships is being competitive, especially when a crush is involved. Sometimes 'friends' may start getting way too close to your crush, after you tell them that you're interested in that specific person. Instead of being a good friend and supporting you, they start competing with you to try to get your crushs' attention.

Its so important to respect your friend's feelings and to think twice about the decisions that you make and consider your friend's feelings. Support them when they're trying to hook up with their crush and don't compete with them.

4. Don't be a bad texter

Don't be that friend that replies super late, all the time (especially when you're not busy). Don't reply with one-word answers or with just one emoji! cause it gives the impression that you don't want to talk to them and it may make your friend feel needy.

If your friend always texts you first and you don't do the same, then it will make your friend feel like they're the only one that tries to keep the friendship going.

5. Drop your pride

In friendships you may not always agree with each other, which is normal - but its important to handle disagreements maturely. Don't be afraid to admit when you're wrong cause if you don't, you're gonna build tension in your friendship.

If your friend reaches out to solve a recent disagreement you had together, be open to resolving it; Don't hold grudges against your friend.

6. Exchange effort

Make sure that you're not that type of friend that just receives and never gives. If your friend is always getting you a birthday gift or acknowledging your birthday ( either via an IG post or a text message) and you don't do the same for your friend, then you're gonna make them feel silly for trying.

Show your friend some effort too, cause that's how they'll know that you care about them too.

7. Don't make your friend feel left out

If you've gotten into a romantic relationship with someone, please don't forget to make time for your friend as well. Cause once you get into a relationship, you spend so much time with your bae, that you may end up abandoning your friend.

Its cool to talk about your relationship with your friends, but don't make that the ONLY topic you talk about. Don't treat your friend as an audience to your relationship, hear what's going on with their life as well, cause that will make them feel like they're a meaningful part of your life.
