    Best Friend To Painful Memory

    It sucks to realize that the friendship doesn't hold the same weight to everybody. Some people can have many friends they're not very close to. I can't imagine that. I can only have one or two friends at a time. To me, friendship is one of the deepest, most important, and most...

    Let me just say, that you never lose a friend.

    Because if she/he was a really a friend, they would've never left.
