  • FRIENDSHIP HOW IT AFFECTS YOU

    Tries to understand your problems Cares about you and your problems Helps you when you are in need Treats you in a nice and kind way Is always with you in bad times Keeps your secrets Shares everything with you

    Everyone has different qualities they believe are important in a friend. Some people think the most important thing about a friend is that they will keep secrets. Other people think a friend should always be fun to be with. What things do you like in a best friend?Everyone is a friend to someone. Yet sometimes people don’t realize they are not acting like a good friend to others. If you don’t act like a good friend, other people will not want to be your friend. Remember, you must be a friend to have a friend!
