True friendship multiplies the good in life and divides its evils. Strive to have friends, for life without friends is like life on a desert island… to find one real friend in a lifetime is good fortune; to keep him is a blessing. – Unknown
Over the years, i have been through a number of friendship groups and a number of issues regarding friends. Its put up a number of walls when i meet new people and given changed my attitude towards new people when i meet them.
I am fortunate to have two friendship groups now, a wonderful group of people i work with and a group of friends i was fortunate to meet in the last few months of secondary school.
The important thing with friends is that they need to appreciate you as much as you appreciate them. Sometimes you need to cut of the dead friendship weight in order to feel better and not ultimately drown in the sea of friends only out for themselves.
I am fortunate enough to not have any of those friends to get rid of and i aim to ensure when i spend 2018 showing my friends exactly how much i appreciate them.
