Many people are called "our friends", but not all such relationships pass the test of time. Of course, many of them do not hurt us on purpose - they just aren't there when we need them the most.
During our lifetime we have to deal with a lot of casual acquaintances and very few real friends. When you are "drowning", in other words, when you encounter serious problems in life, a true friend will do whatever it takes to help you stay afloat. Of course, they do not always manage to keep your "head above water", but they make every possible effort for this, which distinguishes them from all other people in your world.
A true friend will stay close even when everyone else leaves you. It is possible that they do not always behave the way you want, but at the same time this person really cares about you and your well-being.
7 characteristics of a true friend:
1. You can be 100% yourself with them
When you are with a real friend, you don't have to control yourself all the time. You can simply be yourself. He accepts you in any state or mood and shows interests for your inner world.
2. They always support you
Rather than nagging and making you feel worse, they are showing the necessary concern for you. They support you and say the things you need to hear. A true friend never judges you harshly.
3. When something is wrong with your life, they talk about it with you

5. They always make time for you, even if they are very busy
Despite their busy schedule, the always make time to communicate with you. They answer when you call and are always there for you when you need them. Of course, sometimes they may be too busy to come to you immediately, but even under such circumstances, they will find a way to communicate.
6. They do not try to force you to become who you are not
