How Do You Tell if Someone Is a True Friend?

They don’t judge you for what you have, or what you lack.  Instead, they are there for you because they enjoy your company and like you for who you are.

They don’t want to use you or take advantage of you in any way.  Instead, they are looking out for your best interests.  They will show you they care for you in multiple ways.

They will sit on the sidelines and cheer you on.  Other times, they will even get involved to help you get to where you wish to go.

  1. A big one for me, even though you sort of mentioned it, they share in your success. They’re happy for you when you reach your dreams or attain success, no matter how big or small.
