The best kinds of people to have around you’re the caring kind. They are what we think of as’true’ friends. Getting to know who’s who can be interesting and sometimes hardest.
This advice is universal. It fits for anybody of any age when making decisions about who to bring into your life and heart for a friend. However, these tips are stated in a manner that will be especially helpful for tweens and teenagers as well as for children and adults with ADHD, Autism or Asperger Syndrome. These tips will be useful for people who have a tough time picking up the cues and clues that provide them the’Go!’
Here are eight tips to guide you to recognize a true friend:
1. Do you believe your friend cares about what you need to say? A true friend pays attention as you’re speaking and asks questions if he or she does not fully understand your situations or feeling prior to giving information about it.
2. True friends are interested in what’s good for you not for what you can give to them or do for them. A true friend would advise you to do only what is safe, smart and helpful to you. It helps sometimes to see if other people you want and respect also like your new friend.
3. Do you ever feel pressure to do something you really don’t want to do? If you feel this way, it is your true friends who can help you sort out how to be yourself, do the right thing and be part of the audience.
4. If you make a mistake, a true friend will help you feel better. A true friend doesn’t make you feel dumb, gossip to others or criticize you.
5. A true friend gives you privacy and space if you would like it. You don’t have to explain or wonder if your friend will be upset if you prefer to do something your own way, on your own time.
6. When you have trouble, a real friend encourages you to find people you trust to help you take the correct measures to solve it. To let you talk to an adult or with the ideal experience.
7. If your parents don’t permit you to go out on school nights, a true friend will stick by you when you can be together.
8. A true friend lets you’ve got other friends. You don’t need to worry about a true friend getting angry if you spend some time with somebody else. There are so many distinct ways youcan spend time with people. You might have a certain friend who loves to play basketball with you and other friends who are your movie or concert buddies. This doesn’t mean dropping your friend for something different. Real friends have mutual respect and make room for each other to do what they need.
