    Friends are easy to find.

    but keeping a friendship is really hard unless you find the right people.

    I haven't had a girl best friend

    since I lost my 5 best friends gradually throughout middle school and high school. I lost the last one towards the end of 10th grade. I haven't had a girl best friend since then. It's been so long that I am begining to forget what it feels like to have a female best friend in...

    I used to have a best friend.

    We started as classmates in same section in 5th grade. She was kind, outgoing and also a fan of anime and manga like me. We didn't talked too much during 5th grade, maybe because of competitive environment and different circle of friends. We just had conversations about our...

    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.

    Real friends say sorry,

    don't let misunderstandings get in the way, or let their pride stop them putting things right. I am glad I have friends who help me to feel better when I think I may have upset them.

    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...

    a fair-weather companion flatters when all is well, a true friend has your best interests at heart and the pluck to tell you what you need to hear.” -- E.A. Bucchianeri

    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

    Is there really such thing

    as a "true friend?" Cause most of the people who have told me they were my "true friends", both in person and online, turned out not to be. I believe in friendships. But it takes more then words to prove that you're a true friend.

    who only invite you to events that involve you giving money or a gift to them of some sort. Like, seriously. I know someone from an old job, who was always like "yes we need to hangout one day" blah blah blah. I never hit her up about it, cause honestly, she kind of annoyed me...

    But it is so nice you can watch a sunset ( could be either gender and I am not speaking in romantic terms here). We were sipping a scotch and no words were spoken for a while, there was no need since we both knew we were having a great time and we were lucky to be witnessing a...

    I hate it when your best friend

    that you always talk to gets in a relationship and everything changes. You two barely talk anymore, in class there is just an awkward silence. They can't even reply to your texts... It's whatever though. 😔

    A true friend encourages us,

    comforts us, supports us like a big easy chair, offering us a safe refuge from the world.What sweetness is left in life, if you take away friendship? Robbing life of friendship is like robbing the world of the sun.If you have one true friend you have more than your share.

    When I was young, I read this quote

    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...

    So true . Listen to your intuition everyone.

    Listen to that loving voice inside of you that cares for yourself more than anyone you know.. Look out for those feelings you feel when a "friend" or a co-worker makes you feel uneasy. It's for a reason! But then on the flip side, when you instantly click with someone you just...
