Real friends...

I think that your friends are your friends because they love you despite your flaws. They shouldn't want you to completely change who you are so you get the "privilege" of being their friend. Thoughts?

  • 100% agree. I love my friends for who they are. If I wanted to change them, I wouldn't have chosen them to be my friends.

  • I agree.. which is maybe why I have NO non internet friends.. I am so far from high maintenence and drama and apparently that is a draw back or something. I don't like to gossip and am sometimes too supportive of letting people be themselves.. but what do I know, I don't have any real friends lol!!

  • True friendship is accepting each other for everything we are and are not. However, not all relationships can last through things that refuse to change. Though it does have to be an accepted want to change from the party needing to change. As in all relationships.

  • I know who my true friends are because I still talk to them despite moving all over the country.

  • Well said, I have many "types" of friends, fb, cafe mom, long distant, email, blog and personal friends. Each one knows me in a different way. Thus I have many personalities to get to know and have fun with, everyone is different depending on our particular relationship, how it was formed or by how we continue to keep the friendship going. We all need different types of friends. :)

  • Thanks ladies! I have one friend who doesn't judge me for my flaws - my flaws being clinical depression, which causes a lot of other problems - and I am so thankful to have him. Every other friend I had until recently thought I was being a baby and ditched. I have never been the type to judge my friends and leave them because they weren't perfect.
