Have you ever seen the Direct TV ad, where it says you value your friends? You know the one I am talking about, where some hot girls heads turn into George Washington’s. Kinda creepy. Actually, more like will give you nightmares in the middle of the night. How much do we truly value our friends? In the last 8 months I have moved a couple of times. I never realized how hard it was to meet new friends. For most of us our friends are like our families. Just how difficult is it to meet people that influence and change our lives. I would rather go to a dentist and have a root canal.

  We start being put in social situations at a very young age with day cares and schools. It was so much easier as a kid.  Would like to spell a dirty word with my letter blocks? Do you want part of my lunchables? Then, practically you have made a friend. Nothing says friendship more than sharing a taco lunchable. We get older and high school changes all of this. Now, its not so easy. Toys and food just wont cut it. Unless your friends are fat. Our friends come from clubs and cliques. Doesn’t matter if you a jock, nerd, slut, band geek, or outcast, you found friends who can relate to you. This is the first taste of the real world we get. It’s hard to make true friends.

 You get to a certain age where you have to leave everything behind. Your friends will change. I am starting to come to terms with this. I made some great friends that i will always have from high school but sometimes that just isn’t enough. In the past few months living in two different states, I have met people that have changed me for the better. This is for them.

  I haven’t felt a part of something till here recently. I met some people recently that remind of me friends that I miss. It’s like having part of my past with me in my voyage in the future. I haven’t this fun in a couple of years. Whether, it quoting the Hangover or taking a drunk walk through the woods looking for frogs or the lost city of Atlantis. I can’t really remember I was drunk. I feel accepted. That’s a feeling you can only get from peeps that will end up being a true friend.

 What is the definition of a true friend? Someone who will answer the phone or a text at 3 in the morning when wasted. Someone who will not care if you do something stupid, cause more than likely they helped. Someone who looks past your flaws and see you for the greatness you could posses. A true friend will never give you up or let you down. Or turn around and desert you.

  To the people I have came across in the past 8 months. I am proud to call you my friend. I hope you know you have a friend for life. It just took me awhile to see what a friend is.  Here are some great quotes about friendship I would like to end with:

To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world.

Sometimes you put walls up not to keep people out, but to see who cares enough to break them down.

 “This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.

If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you.

A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are.

I leave you with this: Remember value your friendships (cause their Heads will turn into a former presidents). Friends are just like family, Just not as crazy.
