Do you have a lot of friends? Do you remember how long have you been with them?
William Shakespeare once said, “A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.”
At a certain point, friendship is everything to us. It is one of the most important things in our lives because it can influence our choices and helps us define ourselves. Our friends make us feel comfortable; they can unravel the moments of weakness, and also know our shortcomings but still love us anyway.
