DIFFERENT TYPES OF FRIENDS EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE
In general, friends form a crucial part of your life. Every human being is a social creature and there are times when your family will not satisfy your needs for relationships. Ensure that you have friends who are close in your life. There are different types of friends that everybody should have.
§ The opposite. People should have friends who challenge them for example when they think that they have strong views, they find that even their friends do too. Such friends will question your beliefs which force you to explore your motives, thoughts and attitude. In order to get along with such friends, you must avoid being offensive as you give your opinion.
§ The mirror. These are friends who share your beliefs and interests. It is not a surprise that you even watch similar movies and trade clothes and books because you have similar interests. Such friends will update you regarding the latest news. Your conversations are likely to be full of “you too”. However, it will never get over bearing or monotonous.
§ Soul sister. These are friends you have not seen for a long time. When you meet even if it is after many years, none of you feels awkward. With these friends, things fall in place always. The fact is that not everyone can be a friend of this type to everyone.
§ Let’s-get-retarded. These are the type of friends who are crazy. A good example is those friends who have no problem waking you up at two in the morning simply because they want you to go for a walk with them. You will find them on a dancing floor when everybody else is tired. They talk in a way that makes you laugh and they seem not to care about who is looking. At times, they may be exasperating but their eccentric outlook towards life is admirable. Such friends can make you engage in things that on your own, you would not dare. However, you must allow their craziness to overtake your common sense.
§ The listener. One thing that is in common for most people who are listeners is that they hoard secrets. The advantage with such friends is that you can trust them without any fear and even open up to them. You can talk to them about your guilty pleasures and dark secrets. Such people are good confidants because they are trustworthy in addition to accepting people highly.
