How do friends add value to your life?

Adult Friend Challenge – Prudence

#9: Circumspection

 Think about how friends who are different from you have added value to your life; what lessons can you learn from these types of friendships? How can you be this type of friend?

A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself. Real love is letting a person be who they really are.
