What is a friend? Someone that you talk to everyday? A person who knows all your secrets? Perhaps a friend is someone who will give you the hard truth about something when everyone else is too afraid to do so. Friends can be all that and more, but most importantly, I say that a friend is someone who sticks by you even when you’re at your worst.
Anyone can stick by your side while things are going good, sometimes even when things get a bit rocky, but friendships get tested the moment things go wrong. There are some people who are only your friend when there is something in it for them and once that is gone so are they. It takes work to stand by a person who is going through a hard time and not everyone is up to that task.
People come in and out of our lives all the time. Some are there for our battles, while others help fight our personal wars. Whether with us for a little while, or for years and years, we count them as a friend.
We can’t pick our family, but we can pick our friends. If you have those who make your day a bit brighter, laugh with you, and even suffer the bad days with you, be sure to thank them. Friends are family of our own choosing.
