Friends reflect the best qualities we contain. Friends are supposed to fuel our soul, not drain it. As I have grown up, I have seen many friends come and go, and it never gets any easier. I wear my heart on my sleeve and I love every one of them that comes into my life. God sends certain people into my life to teach me lessons, guide me to a new path, and sometimes just because He knows I need a companion. But if there's one thing I've learned from many of my former friends, is that I know how I should be treated. I know my worth, and I know where I want to invest my time. I thank them for showing me that. I adore my friends, but I absolutely love my best friends with my whole heart. Thank you for staying by my side, and thank you for being everything below.
