    When I was 14, I almost drowned in an

    unsupervised pool. At that time, I was still learning to swim but as an impulsive teen I thought I mastered it all. So, foolish me jumped into deep water with my back facing down. Suddenly I realized I wasn't able to gain my balance back in water! I tried to reach to the surface...

    I really want to meet some good

    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.

    Friends for Life Hi everyone,

    I'm Spencer! Some people are able to keep the same friends for several decades while some just move on every couple years. I'm both ways. A friendship for me lasts about an average of 2 years since I'm constantly switching schools. As school friends come and go, I have a few...

    My truest friend is Caroline Forestier

    who lives in my home village about half hour from Tours. She and I share everything, and we always go on holidays with each other. She is my confidante, as I am hers. We talk about everything. We share everything. Caroline showed herself a true friend in supporting me after I...

    An Aquaintence Is Not The Same As A Friend

    I see this all the time. People who surround themselves with scores of others. I've always thought it is to make themselves feel popular and more wanted. It is of course the hollowest of things since the more people you know, by default the less time you have for each one. True...

    Over the years I have learnt

    that true friendship is so hard to find and even if you did it's not good to expect things done in a specific way coz one is your friend. Even your best friend can let you down although not all friendship is like that. I think I am a people's person and over the years have gone...

    I love how true friends won't forget about you

    even if you're no longer in the same school and if they don't live in the same place as you. Despite the time that they haven't talked with you, they will always talk like they saw you yesterday

    It Never Ends.

    It Is As Simple As That

    Create a "bow" with people who makes you feel well, who seems to be true. And untie the "knot" that fasten you to the ones who were significant in your life. But unfortunately, from their own mistakes, they stopped being. Knot pinches, bow decoratesā€¦ "Friends" pinches, true...

    True friends you can call in middle of night

    for help with a problem. Does anyone have more than 2 people whom they consider True Friends? Have you ever called them 'in middle of the night' and did they at least listen to you?

    A person can have many associates,

    If you find someone who makes you smile,

    who checks up on you often to see if you're okay, who watches out for you and wants the very best for you, don't let them go. Keep them close and don't take them for granted. People like that are hard to find. If you do ever lose them, the memories will always make you smile, so...
