It’s terrible seeing a friend you cherished go, whether out of conflict, distance, or changes in life circumstances. But there are friendships worth fighting for, even if distance and busy schedules try to get in the way. 

These five friends are particularly precious. Never let them go.

1. The Good Listener

Some people never listen, and yet they want to talk and talk. But a friend who really listens is precious, and they are worth keeping around forever.

It’s rare finding someone who genuinely cares about what you have to say, and be honest, sometimes having someone hear us out is the best thing ever. It’s cathartic and it’s healing.

2. A Dreamer

This friend believes they are cut out for great things in life. And when you hear them go on and on about their dreams, you have no option but to believe it because you can feel the passion in their hearts as they speak of their beautiful fantasies. 

Don’t let this friend go because their lofty ambitions will inevitably make you aspire to greatness as well. This is the friend who makes you believe your wildest dreams are possible, and there are few things more beautiful in this life than that. Honestly. 

3. The Uplifting Friend

This friend has never given up on you, and always tries to convince you you can achieve everything you put your mind to. This friend will help you find your purpose in life, and this friend could very well turn out to be your soul mate.

4. Generous Friend

Some friends might not always have a lot of time to spend with you, and that’s fine. After all, we have bills to pay and corporate ladders to climb. 

But still, there is a friend who always finds time because they create it just to be with you to help you take care of your needs. A friend who is generous with their time is very rare.

5. The Honest Friend

I was saving the best for the last. This friend will tell it to you as it is. When you are not sure what’s what, you can count on this friend giving it to you without holding anything back. 

And in many situations, what we need the most is the truth. Just watch out that this friend is not also a control freak. When some people realize how much you treasure their advice, they can get a little carried away and turn bossy. 

So, if you find an honest friend who does not insist on you taking their advice, then you have found an amazing person in your life.

Having a friend is very important, I bet you know that. You will be healthier, happier, and have a greater focus in life with the right friends in your life.

So, don’t let good friends go. Keep them around if possible and you will find this life a lot more meaningful than most people ever will.
