What is a True Friend?

What is the criterion for being a true friend? What do you, dear reader, see as your obligation, and what is a friends obligation to you? What is forgiveable? What can you overlook and what is the one thing a friend could do that you would not tolerate, no matter what? What would you do for your friend and what would be too much to ask?

Just curious...respond as you like, or just think about it for yourself....

I'm asking these questions about a family member right now... :/

In answer to YOUR question, I've only had one falling out with a friend, in 48 years. This friend also happened to be a family member, but only because I married into the family.
She stabbed me in the back and stole my business; literally. Went into the storage facility, took the inventory and put it in her own.

I could not speak to her or look at her for one year, and what a horrible year! Had to let go of the hate, it was eating a hole in me... We are friends again, but it was a slow road back.

So, I think nearly anything is forgivable, because you forgive for yourself, not for them. ;)
