During each stage of your life, you meet new people. Some people stick around and impact you in a significant way.
I can remember different friends that impacted different stages in my life. I had friends who helped me make crucial decisions in kindergarten like which game to play at recess. I had friends who influenced my styles and love for Justin Bieber in middle school. I also had friends to help me with the stresses that came with choosing a college.
Each friend I had mattered. Even now the friends I have impact me in such a way to be the best version of myself. They are supporters and listeners at all times.
It's so important to find the right friends, no matter what stage of life you're in. It is even more important to appreciate and remember all the good each friend in your life has done for you.
Don't forget about the friends you had in kindergarten once you hit middle school. Don't forget about the impact your high school friends made on your high school self.
Cherish your college friends for what you have and cherish that friendship long after college is over. Friends come and go, but the perfect friends are the ones that are there in the right moments and stick with you through the bad.
Each friend you had in your life matters in some way because they impacted who you are. Your kindergarten recess buddy is just as important as your high school bestie.
All the friends you have encountered in your life have helped shape the person you are! Be thankful for all of them and don't forget their importance.
