What makes a good friend?

Young people talking

Monash Student Space Newsletter November 2019

A number of students were asked the question we all ask ourselves sometimes.

Here is what they thought:

  • "They are serious when you don’t want them to joke"
  • "Always encourage your friend when they are in need, help them and have a talk to them"
  • "A good friend may share common interests with you"
  • "Similar interests and morals"
  • "Someone you can share most things with"
  • "Someone who makes you feel like you are worth something"
  • "Being their friend even when they are not there"
  • "They are always there for you"
  • "Good communication"
  • "Standing up for others"
  • "Can talk about anything"
  • "An honest friend"
  • "Their ability to understand how you feel"
  • "Is there to support you through tough times"
