The Psychology of Friendship

Good friends show you their love in the small ways, consistently over time. ⠀

Friendship isn't about who you've known the longest. Oliver Drakeford Therapist.

At the heart of every good friendship is the ability to be vulnerable, to show each other what lies beneath the surface of our every day self. A true friend will listen non- judgmentally to all the awkward insecurities we have and be there any way. And if you think about it, that's what we all desperately want and need: the person who will not balk or run when we tell them the things we're most ashamed of. Being seen in this way is the key to self-esteem, to security and self love.
