    They are. Barely anybody truly cares about

    somebody other than themselves anymore and it's extremely sad. Nobody wants to be there for anybody, to talk to, to be genuine, to just be the friend that they need. I have 2 best friends left since moving down south and being out of high school. I'm there for anybody who needs...

    Everyone needs true friends.

    First we have to ask ourselves, are we true friends? Or would we be if the time or circumstances dictate that we need to be there for our friend(s) even when everything seems to falling down around them? It is said sometimes that you find out who your friends are in the hardest...

    You can't find true friendship.

    True friendship is a gift. Only, you can hold ppl to expectations cause ppl will let you down.

    My father passed away 2weeks.

    All of my friends have heard about it and not a lot of them pass their condolences, non of them visited us. Here is the thing, usually I would be sad about it. But instead, I'm glad they have shown me their true colours. I'm glad I know now who is truly my friends.

    I truly believe true friends are hard to find

    out ! I have friends and one best friend ! They are not my true friend ! They just show to be good on my eyes ! I don't trust them that I can share my problem ! True friends are those who support you and always be there for you ! I also believe soon I will get true friend !

    friendship like any relationship is a give and take and it's hard to find people you feel comfortable giving to for many different reasons. But true friends are something every good person needs.

    I can count on my hands how many "true" friends

    I have had. I am saddened by the phrase "true" friend. Personally to be considered my friend you have to get past the point where I would doubt you as "true" for me to consider you my friend. I have had those friends that become my brothers and sisters. Most are past now, a few...

    I feel like true friends are the ones you

    instantly click with and it feels like you have known them since forever. They are the person you can tell anything to without feeling judged or made fun of. I feel like those people are once in a lifetime.

    Where would you be without friends?

    The people to pick you up when you need lifting? We come from homes far from perfect, so you end up almost parent and sibling to your friends - your own chosen family. There's nothing like a really loyal, dependable, good friend. Nothing.

    But when you find at least one make sure you

    cherish every moment with them. Because if you make one mistake they could be gone forever. And it could take even longer to find another one. Take care of your friends and they will take care of you. It is easier to let go of them than to get them back.

    It's hard finding life time friends. Everyone wants to sleep with your spouse or sleep with your family member. Or even steal from you.

    who are true friends and who are just your friends for the company. I find that even if I really care about a friend it doesn't always get reciprocated. My example if I trust or maybe kinda trust a friend when I'm in a bad state of mind or needing someone to talk to, I'll go to...
