{Friendship Friday} Favourite characteristics of your friends

I follow a podcast called the Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey (from Texas so she's got a really darling accent).

She does a Happy Half Hour every two weeks where she chats to people that have been on the podcast before but the half hour is just to talk about girl stuff :)

One of the questions she asks every guest on these half hours is this:

what are the favourite characteristics of your best friends?

It's so fun to hear what the various people say.

So I want to hear yours.

But of course, I'll share first.
  1. They invite vulnerability. That means they share openly from their heart and so I feel like I can do the same. (fabulous quote on this very podcast: how can you love someone you don't know? - I think it was Lysa Terkeurst but don't quote me on that!)
  2. They care about me and it shows. My love languages are words of affirmation and acts of service, and of course, these two do talk "more" to me but I love when I can see care in whatever form.
  3. Reciprocity of initiative and effort. I'm not a tit for tat girl and I know that I make a lot of effort but what I do need is some initiative and reciprocity. I just have healthier relationships with people who also reciprocate.

Over to you!

Tell me 3 of your friends' favourite characteristics!


  1. Such a tough one. Hmmm okay; interest, caring and communication. No surprise that those are also the characteristics I work at bringing to my friendships.

  2. Gosh you are really challenging me to think today - I think in my case mostly forgiveness as I have been such a crappy friend in total. And then the ability to make the most of times we can share

  3. Hmmmm just 3! Compassion is an essential characteristic for me. I also value reciprocity because I'm getting close to becoming a tit for tat friend.. there's only so much one person can give give and give without getting... and no idea on third need to
    Think hard
