Why All Of My Friends Are Friends For Life

Your friends are your lifeline, dontcha' know?

Why All Of My Friends Are Friends For Life
Nigel Enoch

I am quite the person when it comes to making friends.

My outstanding charisma and all-around charm lead to an accepting personality and very straightforward personality. You will be able to sense if I dislike you and I will tell you if I do. This doesn't mean that I want you to change, it simply means that you are not my cup of tea.

Two weeks ago I went to a scad summer seminar. It was basically like a camp for really weird, nerdy artistic people. I mean this in the most loving way because seven of those really weird, nerdy artistic people became my best friends, my brothers, sisters and my second doppelganger. When I meet people I don't look for superficial bonds. I do not find joy in making a friend only to leave. If I come up to you it is because I want to be your friend, I want a life-long friendship, no matter how short that life may be.

People have told me that I am compassionate, nice, that I care for people and I am accepting. I have been told that I am too honest, loud, excitable and I talk too fast. I correct people. I play the devil's advocate and I can be quite the judgmental bitch. However, at the same time I would do anything for the people I love. I have stayed up late nights waiting for frantic texts or calls. I have kept invisible tabs on those that I love because I am much more of a Guardian Angel than a pesterer. I don't believe that distance can ruin any relationship. I have friends from all over the world, and I love them so much. I would drive to Arkansas or Virginia at a moment's notice if I got an emergency call.

I care about people. I care about those that I've known forever and those that I have just met. I do this because I know that when I care about someone, when I feel a bond connecting us even if we've only shared one laugh, I know how our friendship will shape and grow. I knowif it will become strong. Iknowif you will be on the list of people I text or call when I want to take that painkiller and I've been clean for weeks. Iknowthis because when I pick my friends I pick them for a lifetime. I would have no qualms with being sixty years old and meeting you for brunch after fifteen years. I would have no qualms with you showing up at my doorstep at random needing a place to stay. So to those that I love. To my friends, even if I just met you, just know that you aremypeople and I will never forsake you, no matter how closed off I may seem.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
