    A true friend is hard to find.  Every time I become friends with someone who I feel is very close like a sister, something always happens. I always end up meeting people who have hidden motives and want to use me to babysit or to take them places all the time.  I have a...

    Yep

    Its been an ongoing thing for me since I was quite young - that idea of a special friend that would be there through thick and thin and you know you can trust them with your life. I have always envied people who found a best friend early on. It's never happened for...

    I Don't Trust Anyone

    I wish I had a friend I could trust. I so desperately need someone that I feel I can tell anything to. Someone who would listen and be there for me. Someone who would not judge me for the mistakes I make. God knows none of us are perfect.
