    True Friendship Is Priceless.....so Why Do Some Friends Lie And Betray

    I don't know where to begin...but I got to get this off my chest. I have been so called friends with someone for over 9 years. We have laughed together, cried together and shared damn near our entire life with each other. So it has truly hurt me to find out that this person is a...

    A friend you can count on is amazing.

    He or she can be silly while around you but cool around other people depending on what you like. Or they can be silly just whenever they want. True friendship is when you need someone to take you out to go see new places. They could also stay inside with you and play video...

    Friends if they are true are like guardian

    angels. They have your back when you face a bad call. They have your heart to hold when you attend life's ball. They hold your hand when you seem unsure. They help you stand tall when you feel insecure. They carry you high when you can't seem to reach the sky. They hold you...

    I have my faults and I have my strengths. That is what makes me.. me. Just know, I will stand with you and support you to the end. Why? because you are my friend, and that's what friends do.

    Friends that are true are in my opinion way

    more valuable than any monetary value can bestow on anything. You give your heart and you naturally expect them to give you theirs in return. The keys to our hearts unlock a safe that sometimes can be permanently welded so tight that it does not seem anything can break through...

    I have been desired. I have been loved deeply.

    But there is something about being seen as a friend that touches my heart like nothing else. Friendship offered unconditionally warms me, relaxes me, let's me release the breath I barely realize I am holding in the more complicated romantic relationships I have been in. True...

    True friendship means the world to me.

    I know they love me too, no matter what happens between us, we can always count on each other because we know in our hearts that we could never give up our friendships because of all the things we've been through together. Now that is priceless :)

    about not bringing my friends along as life sent us on different paths. Trying to reach back 20, 30 or 50 years is like too difficult. Reaching back after they have died is impossible.

    'agape' love. It's a Greek term meaning love that is self sacrificial. It is friendship with perfect kindness towards each other.
