1. Think about what you can give to a friend – and not about what you can get from them.
2. Encourage your friend to be all they can be, and to reach the goals they have set for themselves.
3. Don’t hold grudges. Forgive and move on.
4. Tactfully point out any serious concerns – but only raise them once, and then leave it up to them.
5. Be loyal, reliable, and don’t let others down. This shows that you’re a faithful and trustworthy friend.
