POSTER & POEM: True friends (more than A-Z)

are good companions, people you enjoy doing things with, but they are also people you just enjoy being with.

are who you want to be with to have a good time and the ones you have to be with when you are having a hard time.

(Take our survey to find out whether you are a true friend.)

True friends …

find the time to be with you on happy occasions, but they also make the time to be with you in times of trauma.

know a lot about you; but they also really know you.
have seen you at your best and your worst – and they still like you.

tolerate your neglect, angry outbursts, and unkind remarks and put up with your annoying habits, dumb comments, bad jokes and broken commitments.

True friends …
always forgive you because they value the friendship more than whatever it is you did to make them sad or angry.

stand up for you, but they also stand up to you.

are on your side and, when you need them, they are at your side.

treat you like a fine painting, always placing you in the best light.

are proud, not jealous of your achievements; they build you up not tear you down.

cry with you when you are grieving and celebrate with you when you experience joy.

want the best for you, bring the best out of you and expect the best from you.
