Rules of Friendship.. From DJ InsyX's Blog

DJ InsyX  has published these great rules of friendship over at his blog:

  • Remain equally loyal in good & bad times.
  • Respect the person not the position, title, or assets.
  • Always do what you say you will do.
  • Never bad mouth a friend to others.
  • Keep their secrets a secret. No exceptions!
  • Always be an optimist, never a naysayer.
  • Always be honest, but never critical.
  • Always value and appreciate your friends.
  • Always be grateful for your friends. Never take them for granted.
  • Always focus on what you appreciate about them, not on what you dislike.
  • Consider their point-of-view before trying to get them to see yours.
  • Never expect anything. Give what you want to receive first.
  • Help without expecting a return favor, but do not do it unconsciously.
  • Take a stand in your friendships. Be who you are.
  • Do not allow your friends to persuade you to do things that you know are not in your best interest.
  • Do not allow your friends to persuade you to violate your morals and principles.
  • Do not try to change your friends. Accept them as they are.
  • Do not criticize, critique, or condemn your friends.
  • Graciously, but firmly, teach your friends how to treat you.
  • Maintain your friendships with periodic quality communication by email, phone, and in-person.
  • Strengthen your friendships by sharing fun, challenging, and intellectual experiences.
  • Let them know how much you value their friendship.
  • If you love a friend, have the courage to tell them. (This applies to both men and women.)
  • When two friends of yours are arguing do not choose sides but be there for both of them through the hard times. At the same time do NOT let either of them ask/force you to choose a side, just love them both equally.

 Thank you InsyX for these wonderful rules!
