After you can define something, you can then begin to fulfill it. If you cannot define what a friend is, surely you cannot be a friend. I have learned through the years that everyone’s definition is not the same. We have so many different perspectives of what a friend should be. In order to be in agreement, the people who are in the relationship must define what their friendship truly consists of. One of the worst things you can do is go into any relationship without discussing what you expect up front to avoid surprises and disappointments later. Some people have never been taught how to be a friend and then there are those who believe they are good friends and in all actuality, they are not. So, sit down and ask yourself what does my perspective of a good sista-friend looks like. It is crucial that you both agree up front to avoid false expectations.
