A true friendship should:
• Encourage you to live your dream.
• Support you toward your goals.
• Sympathize for your losses and help you find a silver lining.
• Build your self-esteem.
Does your partner do all four of these? If yes, then keep them. If not, then you might be better off finding another who will. For as the author of this article on finding true friends says, “If happiness and life-satisfaction are your goals, your friends should be chosen on the basis of how well they can accomplish those four goals.“ And your life partner should too.
