We all need friends but friendship itself needs to be dynamic. You can’t surround yourself with different versions of the same person and expect to grow. 

In this world, you will find tons of different people and the more diverse within reason your friend group is the more you will grow as a person and really come to find yourself. Sure, you should stay away from people who do you harm or who are toxic overall but you need to make sure you have the following kinds of people in your life above all else. While it might be hard to find all of them, you will in time find them, and they will help you become the best possible version of yourself.

7 Types Of Friends You Need To Be Sure You Have:

1. The ones who push you to question things.

Friends who push us to question things are always willing to help us grow. They teach us how to look at things from an outside perspective and through that we find more of ourselves. This in itself helps us to become better versions of ourselves and learn right from wrong more properly.

2. The ones who need your help to grow but who don’t take advantage of your kindness.

Friends who need your help to grow are the ones who make you feel needed. They don’t take advantage of you but they do need you in their lives. These people lean on you but only to the extent that you feel like you have more of a purpose. Their lives are better because you’re around them. 

3. The ones you know you can trust above all else.

Friends that you know you can trust are truly crucial when it comes to proper development in this world. You trust these people and they make you feel comfortable enough to really share things you wouldn’t share with anyone else. You don’t have to worry about these people sharing your secrets, they hold them just as they would their own. 

4. The ones who are willing to chase their dreams and show you how to do the same.

Friends who are willing to not only chase their dreams but to teach you to do the same are some we cannot go without. You need these friends for motivation. They build you up and help you to better understand where you are in life.

5. The ones who bring out your creative side.

Friends who help bring out your creative side are important because they keep helping you mix things up. They give you more of an outlet to express yourself and through that, you find more of yourself than you might think. This creative side coming out will benefit you in more ways than you could ever imagine.

6. The ones who always listens to you.

Friends who listen to you are some that we cannot go without because they are our outlets. We use them as our advice-givers, and we go to them when we need to share the things we’re facing. They are the people who will always be willing to tell us what we need to hear even if it isn’t what we want to hear.

7. The ones who know how to have fun.

Friends who know how to have fun might not be the friends we see every day, but they make the most of the time they spend with us. They are very adventurous and they help us to step out of our comfort zones. They are some of the best people to be around when you’re in the mood to really cut loose.
