My friend Dave has been thinking about friendship lately. What constitutes a true friend? Is a friend someone who covers for your fuck-ups? Is a friend someone who will tell you what you don't want to hear, but need to(whether you feel you need to hear it or not)?
Dave thinks that possibly its a combination of the two. A true friend should be able to reason with you (without fear of retribution), and also say what they feel you need to hear, regardless of your personal feelings.
Dave is the type of guy who wants EVERYHING to go his way with no arguments, bullshit, etc.
He has come to realize that your true friends come when you least expect it, and has developed a true friendship, that he would have never expected. This will make Dave a better person in the long run, and to be honest this took Dave by complete surprise.
He feels feels truly that this friendship (that he didn't expect) was destined, and that he will benefit greatly (as he hopes they do), and everybody will win.
Take it as it comes people and never make decisions on the fly.
