Friendship is one of the most important things in life. Knowing there’s someone who has your back is a heart-warming feeling. A friend who loves you for who you are and not what you have is definitely for keeps.

Friends come and go and it’s all part of life – but those who stick with you during dark times are the ones who care about your wellbeing.

Four key ingredients to a long and lasting friendship:

Trust

This is very important in a friendship. Without it the foundation is easy to break. A healthy friendship needs trust so there can be communication and honesty, which ensure your relationship will last.

Love

The greatest weapon of all! True friends always show each other love and appreciation. Don’t take each other for granted. In everything you do, do it with love.

Honesty

A person cannot truly by your friend if they’re unable to tell you the truth. Sometimes the truth hurts but it’s what makes a friendship strong, so try to be open about your feelings with your friends.

Respect

People tend to take each other for granted and it happens a lot with friends. Respect reminds you of how much you value the other person. Being able to apologise if you have wronged your friend is a sign of respect.
