June 08, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 178

Friends, who don't want them. Some cried with you since from first grade, protected you in high school from bullies, know your entire family and even became like a member in the family. The beauty about friends is that, they add up to your life, some even have the ability to take care of you. With them you are never lonely.

Before we get into who to actually call a friend, I will give you some tips on friends and people. Because sometimes, many make the mistake of taking people for friends. This is what people will do in your life; they have no respect for you. You will know this in the case of parties, when they come to your house they have no respect for things found in your home, so they will go around scattering things from here to there, knowing fully well that this often get parents mad. They make silly jokes about you even in the presence of your parents, relatives and other people, giving them the feeling that; you can't control them. They have no respect of your opinion and always want you to do what they say or suggest.

This is what makes a friend different from people. A friend fully knows how important it is for your parents to meet your home clean and tidy after a party, so he/ she have full respect of your home and try as much as they can to keep things in order. In the presence of your parents, other family members and people, they will bring out the good quality in you showing them that you are in charge. Some even go that extra mile of giving critiques to your bad habits and direct you to the right path of life. By so doing, they will be playing the role of your parents when they are not there. When you discover someone doing this to you, don't push them away, trust me some can do this so well that you will never be without your ''parents.''

Now you know exactly what differentiate a friend from people, so after reading this, don't just seat and let people take a centre position in your life. For sooner or later, you will regret this. It's time to take some action. You don't have to push those that don't fulfill the criteria of a good friend out of your life completely. What you have to do is search within the people that surround you, know those that you can call a friend, take them down into your heart, make them know that they are that important to you, those who are not close the door to your heart from them. You can also use this to know the role you play in someone's life. Are you their friend or people? That is left for you to decide.
