The art of conversation- building friendships.

Wait what. That's not what i want the title to say. It is suppose to say, awesome friendships i have.

So yea, this is a repost of another infj(:
Makes so much sense.
Till now, I have not found a single infj who makes lesser sense than me. Proves something.(:

The Best Kind of Friendship
Not long ago, I was asked to describe what friendship means to me. I thought about the friendships that have meant so much to me throughout my life and what made them so special.
This is what I think matters the most…

-You trust each other.
You can tell each other anything, without any fear that it will be repeated or used against you. - You can always be your true selves. You feel secure telling each other what you really think and feel, no matter how weird it is. You know that they won’t judge or belittle you. Even if they can’t relate, they will appreciate it as part of you.

-You are loyal to each other.
You know where you stand with each other at all times, regardless of the circumstances. - You defend each other. If someone said something untrue or malicious about you, they wouldn’t hesitate for a second to defend you.
-You truly care about each other’s happiness.
You each show interest and concern for the others well-being, and genuinely want them to be happy.
-You learn about each other’s interests.
You want to learn more about their interests, hobbies and goals, even when they aren’t shared interests, because they are an important part of both of your lives.
-You support each other.
You support each other through life’s challenges, such as by listening, encouraging and offering a helping hand. No matter how busy things get, without hesitation, you would always be there for each other when it mattered.
-You push each other to do the best you can.
A good friend sees all that you can be and wants to see you succeed, even if they have to be hard on you sometimes to push you along.
-You can laugh together.
You can laugh over life’s ups and downs, your shared experiences and your “inside jokes.”
-You find ways to let each other know that you think about them.
Even if you don’t see each other as often as you would like, you find ways to let the other one know they are important to you - that you are thinking of them even when you are apart and are always hoping they are doing well. We should all be so lucky as to have at least a few of these people in our lives. If you do, and you’ve never told them what they mean to you, maybe now is the time. :)
May my friendship with my close friends last long...(:
