On Friendship’s Day, we take rounds appreciating the friends that we have in life. But, have we given thought to what is considered to be the qualities of a good friend? If not, here’s a checklist you can follow to see which friends you are actually close to.

Qualities of a Good Friend

No judgment

Being confident about who you are and not have people constantly judging you is an essential part of building your self-esteem. As a good friend, he/she should be able to accept your decisions without judgment.


Being nice to someone’s face is easier as it allows one to avoid confrontation. But, honesty is a quality every friend should have. After all, what are good friends for if they don’t help you fix your mistakes?

Easy to maintain friendship

Being a good friend does not mean that the person asks for each detail of your life, and wants to be a part of every event that takes place in your life. One needs to remember that friends are a part of life, and it is okay if they don’t know each and every event of your life.

A good friend accepts you for who you are

No two people are alike. No matter how close two people get, there will always be something or another that do not overlap between the two – whether it is a habit or a preference. But, a good friend will accept you for who you are, irrespective of this difference.


There is no one way to live a life, and no two people handle a situation in the exact same way. A good friend will be by your side, no matter what decision you make and will be willing to help you come back on track when required.
