  1. Friendship gave me a world to live in like I wanted to, connected to real world but always running on my whims n fancies. Thank you ppl for making my life worth living :)

  2. The foundation of any successful friendship is forgiveness….It will heal any hurt. Everyone gets hurt and we all hurt others…so we are all need to humbly say from deep in our souls …”I am sorry” Jesus said forgive 70 times 7…!! He knew the key to maintaining lasting friendships…!

  3. Friendship…… in my opinion,  it’s like  two souls connected by pure love. Where  respect,  honesty,  protection, encouragement, compassion, giving, and the celebration for each other’s success, takes place! Unfortunately,  a true frienship, with all of these attributes…..  is most definitely, hard to find!   I have not found one!!  My so call friends….they are all… a  one-way relationship!! Sad to say, but they are Selfish, heartless,  inconsiderate, envious, and worst of all, gosipers.  Unfortunately,  givers always attract “TAKERS” If these types of people( takers)  would make  an effort,  to see God’s image in their fellow friends, then, they would certainly  have the great opportunity, to experience the wonderful feeling of  being a good friend and of course, the non-matching  feeling of  “THE ACT GIVING”      Because the act of giving,  it’s  one of the most  sensational  and  greatest life’s rewards!!
