Good friends won’t demand that you accept them the way they are…healthy, confident people either.  It doesn't mean that they will change at your every passing whim, but that they can accept constructive criticism, own their own failures, and allow you the freedom to accept or reject them.  

It’s a pretty vulnerable thing, actually, to be honest about who you are and not demand acceptance.  But - it is totally possible when you realize your worth and value in Christ.  And once you get that, you are solid, yet flexible enough to bend and weave to make room for the needs of others without losing your own nature.
