I believe that family and friends are the things that should be most important to us in our lives. Without them, we would not be able to make it. At least, that is how I view it. They will like you and love you unconditionally for who you are. Throughout life, family may change and you will find out who your true friends are. Those are the people that will make an impact in your life. The people that you truly care about and the people that truly care about you.
If you make family and friends an important part of your life, I think that you will be set for the rocky road of life. They will be there for you when you need them, regardless of what is happening. They will not reject you for your decisions or try to intentionally hurt you. Through the thick and thin, your family and friends will be there for you till then end. This is what I believe.
