Do you have what it takes to stand by a friend in the midst of their trials and tribulations? Do you believe in them, do you trust them? Do you have enough faith in them that you are willing to fight when they are knocked down?
Do you love them?
This need not be physical love, I'm talking about emotional love here, the feeling that you really care about another human being.
If you can't, then you may want to reconsider what is most important to you.
Friendship isn't about who has the most friends.
(though it seems that way sometimes.)
Or about having friends in high places
(though if you find one that care about you that's a special find)
It's about love. Honest.
