    Best friends are people

    who make your problems their problems, so you don't have to go through them alone

    Relationships are like a mirror: what reflects

    back is how you treat the other person. Personally, I would say grow up, forgive (even if you cannot forget). That is the mark of a true friendship

    Very few of us will ever have more

    than two or three true friends that will always be part of our lives. Yes, we come across so many people in our lives - some we help, some help us. In many cases we pass like ships in the night. I still hope to make more true friends as I go through my life.

    I don't have very many friends.

    I have been used and screwed over so many times by friends; therefore now I am very careful who I choose as a friend. I would rather have one good friend who I could talk to or hang out with who is true and honest with me. I don't like to be used or abused.

    Finding a friend is like diving

    for oysters. One encounters a lot of empty shells, until that precious pearl is found.

    Humans are pack animals.

    .. We need a group to belong and survive. Sometimes we can sound like broken records, repeating the same sh!t over and over. The truth is, that when you have a "pack" you're more likely to succeed. Nobody wants to go at life alone. Embrace your "lightbulb" moments, and thank...

    Best friends are people you don't need to talk

    to every single day. You don't need to talk to each other for weeks. But when you do it's as if you'd never stopped talking.

    The hardest part in life was

    when you lose yourselves. You changes for nothing not for good or for bad. You changed just to make somebody loves you. Now you feel the pain of changing for someone isn't you. And it takes time to recover. Been for seven months and still counting. But i do believe i can find...

    who our real friends are. They're the ones who are there when we're struggling, the ones who comfort us with their presence, their concern, their words of caring. They are the quiet presence that is always there when we are feeling sad, lost, broken. The ones who help us pick up...

    Bestfriends: They act like your.

    like a good friend of mine on EP likes to quote

    Lilo and Stitch "Ohana means Family and Family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten." No matter how brief our time together or how intimately intertwined our lives have become, I never forget my friends. They are family. All of my friendships are True.

    why do I have to be the one to put in most or all of the effort to a friendship? Sorry, that's not how it works. Eventually I am going to get tired of being the only one trying. Eventually, i'm gonna stop talking to everyone who doesn't put in equal efforts. you know whats funny...

    The hardest part is not about saying goodbye

    and watch someone walk out of your life. It's about knowing what was special will never be the same again. I should have cherished those days because I know it will all come to an end and even though it's only for a short span of time it made my days much better. Back to where...

    Yesterday an EP friend unexpectedly blocked me.

    It caught me totally off guard. It hadn't been a long friendship, but I thought it was a true one. I guess online friendships are too easy to form and too easy to break.
