June 8th is Best Friends Day. Do you have a best friend? I don’t have just one best friend but I do have a few very special friends whom I love very, very, very, very, very, very much. They are so fun to hang out with! Do you know how to tell if you are a good friend or if someone is a good friend to you? Here are a few things I look for in my very special friends:
- When I am with them I feel good about myself and and I want to make them feel good too.
- We like some of the same things but also show each other new things.
- If I am hurt or sad, I know they will always try to help.
- Even when we want to do different things we try to compromise so that we both get to do a bit of what we want.
- When we are together, we laugh … A LOT.
Do you have any special friends like that? Tell us about them in the comments below! And be sure to compliment them today and let them know how much they mean to you.
