What do you look for in a friend? Is it the colors or the character? The most important thing you need to look out for a friend is their character. 

In your lifetime, you will meet so many types of friends. But did you know that these friends can be categorized? There are three types of friends in life. There are those that are there for a reason. The other category is those that are there for a given season. There is also another category that you will have and that is friends who will be there for you in your entire lifetime.

The following is a deep look at the three categories of friends based on their character and deeds.

Who are the friends for a reason?

These kinds of friends are not for you nor are they for what you are for it is just that they are against what you are against at. You might be thinking that they are your real friends but they come into your life to fulfill a purpose and when the purpose is complete is when you realize that they are not there anymore. These kinds of friends will leave you and desert you after their mission is accomplished.

Who are the friends for a season? 

These type of friend will walk with you, work with you and labor with you. But, they are not into you. They are into what you are for. This kind of friend is your constituent. Don’t think that they are for you when they are really not for you, they are just for what you are for and by the time you get to fall in love with them they will break your heart as they hook up with somebody else who is for what you are for because it was never about you anyway. It was about the causes that you represent. They are for what you are for but they are not for you. They are not real friends.

Who are the friends for a lifetime? 

These are the confidants. These are the people in your life who love you unconditionally. They are into you whether you are up or down. They are there in your life for the longest period of time. If you get in trouble they get in trouble with you. These are the types of friends that will come to see you in the jailhouse. You can open up and share anything with them. They are intimately intertwined in your life and they are there to make sure that you reach your destiny. They will comfort you, they will get in your business they will tell you when you are wrong. This is a true friend; a real friend that you need in your life. 

In a nutshell, it is wise enough if you know the kind of friends that you have. Be careful who you tell your dream because you might not achieve it if you have the wrong types of friends. Identify people who are really for you. If they are really for you, they will we win you with you, when you weep, they will weep with you and they will rejoice when you rejoice.
