    I still get a little agitated

    when I remember the unfortunate experiences I've had with "friends". I don't regret these experiences though, because they've instilled a kind of backbone. All throughout my childhood, I thought there was something chronically wrong with me, while wanting to be friends with...

    I recently went through something

    that reminded me of the friends that I have in my life that I value. In the year that I have been here on this site I have met a few wonderful people who are good friends and add light and positivity to my life. I am grateful to have these people in my life. On the flip side...

    This is so true. Due to the nature of some of

    the work I do, I tend to have a wide network of friends. Although, I have many people I would call a friend, it is quite a small network that I would call a true friend. I have been battling some health issues lately and it's during these time, of hardship, where you can...

    I love the connection my best friend

    and I have with each other. We don't always see each other, but when we do, it's like we never left. We're so close and trust one another to talk about anything and be completely open. It's so wonderful. I'm glad we're in each other life's and hope we'll always be.

    Well, yes, to an extent I agree.

    But, at least in my life, I seem to find time for all manner of 'friend' levels - they each have something which builds up to a rich tapestry in life. Trouble is, I don't really know what the difference is to distinguish what is a true friend, and just an acquaintance; I suspect...

    Most of my friends are like me,

    Having 5 good friends is better

    than having a 100 average ones.I prefer quality over quantity any day.Have also read a person cannot manage more than 45 relationships/friends , so the number game is not for me.Have a group of like minded souls and let the fun times flow.

    It's always about the quality

    and not the quantity. It's about knowing who is always gonna be in your corner at the end of the day. A person can have tons of friends but doesn't mean that all of them are going to be a real friend.
