Friends are an important part of most people's lives. Research shows that having quality relationships increases the likelihood of being happy. So it is good for your happiness to be a good friend and to have a group of close friends around you.
A good friend is someone who is around to provide support when things are tough or someone you can rely on to celebrate a special moment with you. You might see them everyday, once a month or less. You might hardly see them at alll, but keep in touch via telephone, email and online.
Friends come and go in life, they can make you laugh and cry, but the most important thing is they like you for who you are. It is about the things they do, not what they look like or what they wear, that show you how much of a good friend they really are. They are there for you no matter what.
