    I was sad and lonely

    after waking up, feeling like life is pointless, but before I could properly wash my face, my friends took the depression, and kicked the crap outta that *****!!! I love my friends!

    Friendship is a beautiful gift!

    The love, kindness, and enrichment friends provide goes far beyond words convey. However, as one EP friend recently said to me, 'a proven, trustworthy, and consistent friend is beyond value'. Simply put, regardless of chosen words, when a friend expresses the importance you...

    VITAMIN F (I loved this

    and wanted to share it with you.) Why do I have a variety of friends who are all so different in character? How can I get along with them all? I think that each one helps to bring out a "different" part of me. * With one of them I am polite. * I joke with...

    Friendship is like ******* your pants.

    Everyone can see it. But only you can feel its true warmth. ;-)

    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...

    Most people give up on me

    after a while, so I treasure the friends who stay there for me through thick and thin. I do the same for them.

    I went out with my friend Saturday night,

    while kicking back some drinks she took one look at me and knew something was definitely not right with me and knew somehow that the smile and luster I used to have was just not there. It made me think that maybe she knows me better than what I often misunderstood about her, we...

    It's in the hard times we find out

    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...

    Not everyone can convey what they are feeling

    in the exact moment. The key is to know who you are and learn to read between the lines. RESPECT the unspoken... For that is the most difficult, most vulnerable grey area one can have. If you really care about someone, you nurture the unspoken until it is finally released...

    My friends are what keep me going now-a-days.

    There are two types of people

    who learn the most about you: your friends and your enemies. Your friends learn about you because they love you. Your enemies learn about you because they want to hurt you.

    I am so tired of one sided friendships.

    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...

    They really are hard to come by these days

    so if you do happen to come across a friend u cherish hold on to them! So hard to find genuine people to have friendships with ppl tend to have another agenda!

    Pay attention to who your real friends are.

    – As we grow up, we realize it becomes less important to have more friends and more important to have real ones. Remember, life is kind of like a party. You invite a lot of people, some leave early, some stay all night, some laugh with you, some laugh at you, and some show...

    I need to get this out somewhere.

    I miss her! I never imagined that a situation like this would fall into my lap and then mysteriously disappear. Oh god, I miss her. I hope she's ok. Just... be ok. If we never talk again, fine, but just... be alive.

    People come into our life disguised

    I have this friend on here.

    . who I have known for almost a year now. I cannot imagine life without them. Person you know who you are. We share so much in common.. and it just makes me feel that I was born in the wrong generation. I love our friendship and hope that it will never fade.
