Friends and family are most important
I believe that friends and family are the true promote true happiness. When you have friends and family, you have those who care for you. When you have them, you don’t really need anything else. When you have a family and a few really good friends, you know that they will always be there for you. You know that you can always count on them, and you definitely know that you can trust them with a secret or anything personal. When you are surrounded by them, you realize that nothing in the world can ever replace them.
Nothing can ever replace the memories that you have. No matter how much money, or how famous, or how glamorous you are, it wouldn’t be that great if you didn’t have friends or a family. I would never trade them in for anything. Material possessions have their place but my family and my friends are much more important. They don’t even care about what I look like or what I wear. I could in pajamas or wake up looking like a freak, and it wouldn’t matter.
Relationships are essential for the successful wellbeing of every person. It is based on the simple rules of trust and honesty. A true friend is a person you can always count on when you face challenges and serious problems. He or she always offers a shoulder to cry on in case something wrong happens. Your soulmate always listens to your problems, gives you good piece of advice, and never talks behind your back. A true friend is never envious of your accomplishments and achievements. This person respects you and keeps all your secrets. You can always tell your trusted friend your flaws and be sure that your revelations are safe. A good friend is always loyal to you and never lets you down. Being trustworthy is a very important factor in any friendship. A true friendship is a reward for all the good we do in our life. A true friend is there for you in the times of need, he makes you smile when you forgot how to, and lift you up when you can’t not lift up yourself.In order to maintain a healthy friendship, it starts with trust, honesty, and respect. If trust, honesty, and respect are not the foundation of your friendship, the friendship will most likely be nothing but a facade. There will be no true meaning to it and it could ultimately end up being a very hollow and empty relationship.
A picture is simply a capture of an instant. But a stack of them can, like a movie, describe the progression of life. We do not need to agree on the definition of family, nor do I want us to limit our scope of who a family could be based on who is family to one of us. For me, my parents and siblings make up my family as well as those that are not blood related. Whatever world I create for myself, wherever I go, whatever I do, my family will be there. They provide an indispensable foundation, unconditional love, and humble wisdom if I so choose to accept it. And for that reason I believe in family. It is for that reason that family is my goal.
