Everyone has people in their life that they are completely comfortable around. You know that you can depend on them for a good laugh, good times, and great advice. You can count on them for anything. Most importantly, you love being yourself around them.
"No matter how serious life gets, you still gotta have that one person you can be completely stupid with."
It is so important to have good friends in life. Having people that you can count on, that you can depend on, and that you can connect with is one of the most beautiful things in life. These true friends are hard to find- there are usually only a select few people in life that you can completely be yourself with. With these friends, you don't care about your appearance, how you act, or whether or not you 'fit in.' True friends love you for exactly who you are.
When you find true friends, you have to treasure and protect the relationships in life. Coming to college has given me a new perspective on relationships and friendships, I have to put in a lot more effort to stay connected with high school friends while also pursuing and developing friendships here. Being caught in two worlds of friendship is confusing, but rewarding as well. Knowing I have friends in 2 places makes me extremely happy and very comfortable. I know I can depend on any one of my true friends for anything. They will be there for me regardless of what happens.
I am so blessed with incredible friendships. Take a moment to acknowledge how blessed you are... and thank God for the true friends in your life and for all they do for you.
"If one falls down,
his friend can help him up.
But pity the man who falls
and has no one to help him up!"
