What are three things you can do to be a better friend?

I’ve never been a very good friend. I hardly ever call my friends and I haven’t been able to really do anything in months. I’d like to blame my financial situation, but the truth of the matter is I just don’t feel like being around people much lately. I hate the fact that I’m 27 years old and don’t have the money to do what I want to do, so I just tend to shut down and not want to do anything. But here are the three things I plan to do to be a better friend:

1. Call my friends at least once a week, if for nothing else than to just talk.

2. Make time to go see my friends (at least the ones that live close enough) at least every couple of weeks.

3. If a friend does something to upset me, I need to tell them. Not because I want to start drama, but because I have this really bad habit of bottling things up inside and holding a grudge, which makes me want to spend even less time with them than I already do.

How do you define a friend?

What is a friend? To me, a friend is someone who will listen to you bitch about how your life sucks, then will turn around and tell you how to fix it. A friend is someone who comes over at three in the morning because your boyfriend just broke up with you. But before she comes over she goes to the only convenience store still open and buys a gallon of your favorite ice cream. She’s the person who takes you out to lunch for your birthday, even though she knows you won’t be able to return the favor.

But most of all, a true friend is someone who accepts you, faults and all. She knows everything about you, but she still treats you like family.
