It is said that it will take several life times to truly know someone.
The word ‘friend’ is today used freely with little meaning or real substance.
For me a friend is there for you not when you’re loveable, but when you’re at your most irksome and irritating. Privately they may say nasty things to your face, but publicly they could not praise you enough.
“There comes a point in your life when you realize who really matters, who never did, and who always will”.
