Describe the characteristics of friends，use specific examples to support your statement. Well I think that Good friends should bear several qualities. First of all， a friend in need is a friend indeed. A good friend should be willing to help you when you are in trouble，comfort you when you are frustrated.
Furthermore， good friends should also be honest people， who can open heart to others and never refuse to acknowledge their shortcomings. I feel comfortable and safe to get along with these types of friends， and they can always offer their opinions for your own good. So I think friends like this deserve to be credited as the good ones.
