I am so thankful for every single one of my friends. The old ones as well as the new. Throughout my life I have met a variety of different people and found some amazing friends to share my life and special moments with. I know my friends are the ones I can share my secrets with, and they will keep them.
As I have grown up, I have come to realize that a few good friends are better than a hundred buddies and people that you just "know". Friends are the ones that are happy for you when you are successful, they are the ones that stay by your side no matter what, and have your back in every situation. Even though many of my friends have a different lifestyle than me at the moment and we don't see each other that often, it does not change anything. No distance, nor time is something that will affect a good friendship. I know that I can call my friends at any time of the day if I have problems, and I'm telling you that it is a great thing to have friends like that.
Keep your friends close.
