I believe that friendship is one of the most important things in our life. I believe that no matter who you may be everyone needs a good friend to count on; nobody should go through life no friends. You should be able to have that someone you can tell everything to and no matter what you both are there for each other. Nobody is perfect and people should be willing to accept you for who you are. To me friendship is really important and I do not take advantage of it one second! I have worked hard for my close friends that I do have now and never plan on losing them.
I know that I can have one good friend that I can go through life with. Personal I think friendship is that most important thing to me. I can tell my friends ever secret I have. Friendship is a fine gift out of the many that life can bring. Friendship can be a commitment. I have more then one or two real, true friends, with that I feel blessed. A real friend will listen and offer advice during hard times. I believe nothing can replace a true friend, not money, cars, problems, and definitely not boys. I know that my friends support me in basically every decision I make.
Personally I have developed a strong friendship with my friend Brianna. This has taken a couple years to build and we have had our moments. We are here for each other for any issue and are always willing to put down what we are doing and listen to each other. She has turned into like one of my sisters. Brianna knows every little last thing about me you can ever think of. Yes we have had our fights, they have been rough times, but we always manage to get over them. I know she is the shoulder I can cry on when I need to.
Friends can also give you a lot of helpful tips because friends are honest when you do or say something wrong and do not tell you that was good just to make you happy. They help you to improve yourself in every way. Most of all friends forgive you. I can do everything wrong but my friends sill stand next to me and are will to give me that second chance. The definition of a friend is a person whom one knows, likes, and trust.
