What Makes a Good Friend?

in hive-125125 •  3 months ago  (edited)

Today, modern technology allows us to make hundreds, or even thousands, of social network “friends” by merely adding their names to our list of contacts. We also do that here on Steem. We follow somebody, and they may also follow us. However, can we really be considered "friends"? The truth of the matter is, true friendship still eludes many. In fact, a recent survey revealed that although we are socializing more, the number of our truly close friends has decreased.

So, how can we be a good friend? What does it take to forge a lasting friendship?

Show that you CARE

True friends really care for each other. This kind of commitment is two-way, it requires a lot of sacrifice and hard work on both sides.

“Just as you want men to do to you, do the same way to them. Practice giving, and people will give to you.”
--Luke 6:31, 38.

COMMUNICATE

A true friendship cannot flourish without regular communication. Communication is the lifeblood of a strong relationship. So, it is necessary to talk and listen; post, read and comment. We need this in order to thrive.

“Everyone must be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger.”
--James 1:19.

Widen Your CIRCLE of Friends

Taking an interest in people of all ages, cultural backgrounds, and nationalities can truly enrich our lives.

In the CCC Community, the member are doing just as this. We CARE and support each other, we COMMUNICATE and interact with one another to strengthen our friendship, and we also widen out our CIRCLE of friends.

I thank @wakeupkitty for always supporting all the members of the team, and @olivia08, @marblely, @gertu, @freedomshift, and @felixgarciap for tirelessly hosting a contest week after week.

Better way to start a friendship. Steem allows it

Posted using Partiko Android

Yes. It is a way of gaining friendship. Steem allows me to have virtual friends that I can get some life's good lessons.

I had to tell you that is an really cool silhouette and sunset photograph, my friend! Please tell me more about it when you have a chance, Ging! @gingbabida 💕💫

Hahaha! Lover of sunset that you are! 😂 How are you my friend? Have you been busy lately?

That picture was taken a year ago or a bit more, I guess, when we were travelling with friends towards the south of the country. We stopped at a resort to take some rest and to have dinner. When we were prepping for dinner, a beautiful sunset was magically setting before our eyes. So we stopped what we were doing, and posed with the sunset in view!!! Btw, Thirdy was at the middle. 😁😂 He cannot make the "heart sign" so he just raised his arm. Hahaha! 😂😁

Hope your day went well, @ninahaskin. We just started another day here.

Aww! Little man Thirdy will be there soon, stretching his strong arms into a big ole heart with the rest of the family!♥️💪

That is a priceless story to go along with the incredible sunset photograph -- I had a feeling it would be and it did not disappoint! Thanks for sharing.

Something always has me busy, Ging, you know how it goes - the to-do list gets longer every day!✍

Have a terrific day! @gingbabida💕💫

Oh yes, I understand. I have always write my to-do list to make me see my progress. The written one seems to work on me with than doing it electronically. Hehehe. 😂

Btw, are you a member of PowerHouseCreatives? Jaynie is inviting people to join. I'm quite reluctant so I'm asking around. Hehehe. 😊😂

Hope everything goes well today @ninahaskin. ❤

Yes, I agree with keeing a list in paper format instead of electronically. To me, it's more real when it can be held in my hands. And here's something for you to look forward to. When you get to be my age, you have multiple lists!😀

Yes, I joined Power House Creatives almost a month ago and have no regrets! I enjoy the interaction of the community and the way things are organized. Feel free to message me on Discord! @gingbabida💕💫

Hahaha! 😂 Yes, I can only agree with multiple to-do list. I think I'll gonna have it sooner. Hahaha! 😂😍

OK. Thank you. I will reconsider joining Power House Creative, then. 😊😊

Sounds good, Ging!📝✍📝😀
I sent you a message on Discord @gingbabida
