One thing you can always be sure about is that your true friends will always be there for you. Your true friends know the real you and will always be forgiving. Boyfriends and girlfriends come and go, but friends are forever. It may be hard to believe this at first but it’s true.

The Past

True friends are people that come into your life and never leave. Think about those that have always been there for you.

The Present

You’re able to feel it when you have a true friend in someone. It’s important to get through tough times with them and be there for them. When your life feels like it’s spinning out of control, they probably know what is best for you to do. You may not want to listen to them but at times, your true friends may know you better then you know yourself.

The Future

When you’re married, your husband or wife will be that one person that you can go to when you’re in a fight with a friend. Don’t worry, you will meet someone one day that you can truly rely on but it is extremely important to remember that your friends will never leave you, and you must always keep them close to your heart.
