I believe that you cannot get through life without friends you can rely on. Trust and loyalty are two very important characteristics for people to have. They help build strong relationships that last many years and are hard to break. They make life easier knowing that your friend will be there for you when you need it the most. They can give you honest answers to you questions to get the best results. It is important to have some friends that will even go out of their way to help you through tough times. Friends like these matter most and should be treasured your entire life.
