hello amyson, Same with me,i can share all sad/happy/good and bad moments with my closest friend. I am not afraid or shy to tell my stories to her,for,i don't have anything to hide. I am a very transparent person,and i don't hide anything about myself. I also believe in a saying "staying together in honesty will make a relationship stronger" And real friends are not only friends for laughters,but also for tears. We can also measure the true friends when we needed them the most. Friends are people who criticized us,and yet,stood besides us! Have a good day always dear

I've had many friends in my life, and the true friends are the friends I could share anything with and still have their support. There have been some friends that as soon as they see problems will end the friendship, but I don't think they are true friend at all. Sharing good and bad, that to me, is the definition of a good friend - somebody you feel you can say anything too. - Derek

yes your right if they leave you if you have problems or making excuses that is not a true friend.true friends will stick together in happy or sad events in our lives.if they need comfort we can offer them our shoulder and support them that is the real friendship.good day derek..

I share good news and even bad news to friends who can be trusted. I don't share, however few personal family problems as sometimes there are problems that only you and the family can solve.

I think you have really defines what a friend is. The physical needs, for instance if someone is sick and cannot cook, can be handled by a paid assistant or a do-gooder type volunteer, but the interaction you describe can only be shared with a friend.

yes sometimes if its very long friend we can open up sometimes are few secret because we know we can trust her and sometimes they now belong to your family.i think it is ok to share good news as well us bad news.if she listen that is good and i think conversation is very much important in friends.

I do have some friends that I share things with, but not all of my friends, and not necessarily all of my news.

ok, it is nice to share only those matter that concern them if they do not need their opinion, then is nothing to ask or letting them know just to keep one privacy over matters.

Really not. I don't say to my friend anything about my life. I don't say it for anyone.

YEah, i do share both good and bad news to my friends.. Be it they are my good friends or not, i will gladly share it with them, for it's a form of spreading my joy etc ^_^ And if it comes to bad news, it will be like imparting some form of life lessons to them, hoping they will be able to learn something out of it, and not follow into my footsteps ^_^ However, some private matters, i will only share with ple who are close to me, yet i will not share it all with them too.. lol =D

Definitely. Friendship is lifeless if there's something you're hiding to a friend specially if this really concerns him/her. Though there's always a good way to unfold a bad news, making sure that you tell this news to friend in a very constructive way. Truth really hurts, but with you as a friend around, it really ease the pain. Assurance that you will never leave them in the middle of a struggle is a good news for them. On the other hand, delivering good news is very simple to do. Again make sure that you also feel the same way and you are pleased that they have some good news for a day. Celebrate with them and tell them you are happy for their achievements.

Sure, I will share my good and bad news with my good friends. As they are my good friends, they can share with my feelings. And when I am down, at least they can comfort me even if they may not do anything to help me. And if I share with my happiness with them, I will feel happier. I love China

Hi Amyson, I seldom share bad news to my friends. Most of the time i shared good news to my friends. It's worth sharing the joy i have in my heart hearing such good news. i screened bad news worth sharing. i know i can manage the situation. sometimes i share the bad news after i resolved it or did something about it!

yes, its good to share news to you close friend, good or bad. it serves as an outlet for us. and you are right, it releases tension so it doesnt build up inside us. and i think talking is healthy too!

Dear friend, I do not say everything to my friends. I do share according to the friends to whom I am with. Some news I share which I could get a good outcome from that particular friend. Some news I do not wan to hurt my friends unnecessarily.

yes i do share good news with my friends when i am happy. But when it comes to bad news you are always skeptical not to tell anyone. But in my case i do share even this with my friends as i feel i would feel more comfortable.

sometimes I share it sometimes I don't. I am not really a talkative person and I prefer listening to my friends rather than sharing.. =)
