    True Friends

    If they are my friends they keep in touch and can tell them anything and they dont pass it on. I have a few close friends from school days. They are the best and I love them to pieces. They are my sisters and brother or as close any way.

    My Friends...

    Have all showed me on various occasions that they are there for me if ever I'm in need. Happily they have also stepped up when it affected my son. *Overwhelmed with Joy and Love*

    Old Friends

    I met with my old, childhood friends today :) We don't see each other that often, so it was good to catch up. We always have a good time and never fight. My friend Marcus is like a brother to me, and I would do anything for him. Seeing Marcus and Josiah again made me realize that...

    For Sure

    for some reason it took me a while to realize who my true friends are, i've been back stabbed so many time by people that i thought i could trust. To me a true friend is someone who is always there for you when you need them the most, and when you try to push them away they...

    I really love my real friends, because I know, no matter what I do or how I act, they won't ditch me! I don't have that many true friends but I'm lucky with the ones I do have.

    Finding friends are hard to find. It's hard finding life time friends. Everyone wants to sleep with your spouse or sleep with your family member. Or even steal from you.
