    Good Friends...

    I feel that good friends are what makes life worthwhile. They make you happy, and when you are going through hard times, they are there for you. I've had a lot of good friends, and some bad ones, too. I love being with my friends, even though I'm a shy person. I miss a lot of my...

    Success ? many will love you

    for it. The majority will hate you. Because your success makes them feel insufficient in their current endeavor. Reminds them of how they could?ve done it but came up short and didn?t revisit it, where they went at it and failed and didn?t revisit it again..

    It's sad to say, but I believe good,
