This a topic I always longed to write about, but never knew how to go about it. Imagine your life without the friends you’ve made throughout it. Would you have survived? Yes of course, but would you have enjoyed it? Would you be where you are now? Just imagine what kind of emotional and psychological state you would have been in. Would your life be bearable?
My PERSONAL answer to all those questions would be NO.
I can’t be anymore grateful to have the friends I have. Friendship is an everyday thing people take for granted. I don’t mean in the form of appreciation, but in the impact it makes on a person’s life. Having someone to share all your problems and excitements is a beautifully distressing blessing to have. I can’t thank my friends enough for sticking by me through everything that has happened in our lives. I know that I can be irritating, weird, and annoyingly hard to deal with sometimes. Okay, maybe a lot of the times. I know that sometimes I can make some really stupid decisions that make them roll their eyes at me, or have strange quirky moments that make them shake their heads. No matter what i do though, I know that my friends have and will always be there.
As a friend to others, I always try to be there for them. Knowing the kind of impact they make in my life, I try, not exactly to match the intensity of their presence, but to make sure that they know that I am there, that I would do everything in my power to help them. I can be their ears, their support, and give them different perspectives to their situations.
I’m sure they appreciate as much as I do, how pleasant it is to spend time in someone’s company, to do things you both enjoy, to gossip about people you both know , to cry, vent, share experiences to AND with. A friendship is a strong bond a person needs to create, because its based on trust, honesty, and sacrifice; it is hard, grand, and precious. These are the very things that help us realize that we need somebody by our side, a buddy that completes us. We all need a special somebody that can help us lift the tremendous weight and pressures this world puts on us, as well as the overwhelming emotion that is loneliness.
I am sooo grateful for every single friend I had, have, and may have.
Friends are Life!! – ♥AR
