This year I want you to be a better friend.
Be a better friend by making those who are around you feeling good for being exactly who they are.
Be a better friend by always showing up, whether it is a planned hangout or an 11 pm call from somebody who is heartbroken and really needs you.
Be a better friend by being truthful, by telling your friend what they need to hear, not what they want to hear, and still making them feel encouraged and loved and cared for in the process.
Be a better friend by making those you love feeling listened to.
Be a better friend by never making anyone feel like they are not worth your time.
Be a better friend by being one who reaches out when you haven't talked or seen each other for awhile.
Be a friend by understanding that often your time means SO much more then any gift you can give.
Be a better friend by forgiving.
Be a better friend by apologizing.
Be a better friend by learning how to ask for help when you feel you need help.
Be a better friend by dropping everything when someone you care about has summoned the courage to admit they need help.
Be a better friend by not being perfect, but just by always BEING there for your friends.
