5. The differences between you are not an issue

After a long friendship, you’ve come to realize that you don’t agree on every issue and that there are some differences in the manner in which you handle things. But these differences give you an opportunity to see things from another perspective. And you always respect your friend’s choices, even if you don’t agree with them.

6. They are not jealous of your other friends

Whenever one of you makes a new friend, the other one is happy and encouraging. They don’t perceive it as a threat, but as an opportunity to discover new people and new worlds.

Your best friend will encourage, support and help you no matter what. They are the only person who can challenge your decisions, but once made, they will not make you feel guilty about them. You can be yourself in their presence, knowing that nothing can wrong when you are together. Please, share this with your best friend!
