Cece DuBois

I tellmy best friend all the time htat when I vent to her I just want her to listen and not to try to give me advice. She is the best (she even understands me when I am crying my eyes out). That is probably why our friendship has lasted for so long.

I am so blessed with friends like this. I hurt my back after Thanksgiving last year and the three couples, brought me groceries, took me to the doctor's office and sat with me while I recovered. It took three weeks before I can go back to work. They are my very good friends.

I think in a friendship, listening is very vital. I have many times just sat there and listened to a friend, a time to vent, even though I coudlnt physcially take care of the problem for them. Sometimes just having someone listen is the best medicine even though the problem cant be solved by taking action doing something. Good friends that listen and will be there for you are a true gem and hard to find.

Very true statement. I was their for someone through the best of times and through his most worst of times when he couldnt even speak and he didnt even know anyone was there. Friends as well as family should be their for each other no matter what the circumstances are.

There are times when friends can't tell you something to get you out of a funk but having someone there to listen sure makes you feel that they care. A very nice quote.

The quote is interesting, though much of helping is listening.

Cece's quote defines a true friend. Everyone should be that friend to someone.

I agree. Its suprising how just listening to someone and letting them tell you how they feel can help them. It works the other way too of course. Sometimes you just need someone to LISTEN and thats it.

Every close friend I've ever had in life has had this trait. Sometimes, you just need somebody to listen. Most of the time, I figure out a solution to my own problem as I'm talking it out with a friend.

Yup that is the definition of a friendship. Sometimes people really think friends can always help you stand back up which is stupid but friends CAN stay and listen if its all we can do.

I believe we have a lot of friends and in between all those friends i believe you only need one or two good friends that meet this criteria...

This is so very true! I can't even count how many times my long time friends and I have been together and had talks based off this quote.

i promise that i was just thinking this on this very day- i've got a "friend" who calls to rant and rave about every single one of there problems, to the point where i literally cant even get a word in....but doesn't ever both to ask hows you moms (who is suffering with cancer) how is school, or for that matter even how are you? Psssshhh thats not a friend!!! as the quote states, even if simply a true friend can not help life you up, a true friend can be there by simply listening! <3
