4. I found that once I have met a new person they are said to be a friend and I do not think of the traits they have to be a friend. Or I find that I can be very judgmental about the type of people I let into my life.
5. I allow people to take on the role of a friend simply when we have a good conversation or hang out for a few hours. I do not think of what it is that distinguishes them from a friend and an acquaintance. I believe in the good heart of people and that they will be kind to me and think of ways to better each other.
Action:
1. I believe in the good heartedness of a person, that once I let them into my life as a friend they will show me friendship, I never really think about what it is that makes up a friendship, just that once I have opened myself up to one that it will automatically take on that role.

>I intend to not only keep my friends close but try and make better friends and gain life long friendships with people I actually enjoy.
