AskPatty_is_#Grateful-07-Friends

We just can't say enough about the importance of friendship.

What do you value the most in a friendship? Quora readers list everything from mutual trust and respect, to a sacred bond of loyalty and honesty,

A friend is one whom you treat like your second family. A friend is one with whom you are not shy. A friend is one for whom you would not hesitate to take any risk, or who would support you without any hesitation.

A friend is one will listen to your boring stories and you will listen to theirs too. A friend is one who you can call to your any need. A friend will come on your road trip with you just to make sure you are safe and can find your way.

And these things can only happen if your friendship is grounded on mutual trust, honesty, and selfless sacrifice. We are truly #grateful for our friends!
