A loyal friend remains in support of his friend during difficult situations. Just as honesty is a virtue that a friend should possess, loyalty is equally important. In other words, a loyal friend is a committed friend.
Real friends understand each other. A good friend will try to understand why you do the things you do. Understanding is a crucial attribute you should have as an individual.
