“A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.”
I believe that friends are always there for you, I believe that they never walk in or
walk out on you. . My friends and I never walk in or walk out, we consider ourselves
being always there for each other. How? Why? We have a notebook that enables us to be
in each others lives, every second of everyday. We created this notebook because we
wanted to share our thoughts, our feelings whenever and wherever. We call this book the
ADA notebook which means Las Amigas De Almas. We are sisters of the soul. The way
this notebook works is that we pass it around our circle between the four of us, it’s
completely anonymous and we have our nicknames for that. This notebook has been to
Idaho, the country (multiple times), and many other places and it put a piece of all four of
us and our travels within it.
Sounds silly, right? It may, but it’s helped us through our boyfriend problems
when we needed someone to listen and not worry about being judged. We’ve all had
those problems, but we’ve gotten through them because we have all listened to each other
and never judged each other. We’ve comforted, supported, and helped one another
through the hard times we’ve encountered such as the boyfriend problems.
Since the notebook has started, we’ve also had our disagreements, which in
reponse led to arguments. Sure we’ve fought because of what we thought of others
boyfriends and how our feelings are different, but because of the notebook, our friendship
has never been destroyed. I believe friends never leave each others sides, I believe that
they never walk in or walk out, they just stay with you. Whether it’s through a book or
spiritually, your friends are always there.
