Life takes your dreams and turns them upside down. Friends talk about you when youre not around. People make promises that they never keep and Ive come to realize talk is cheap. Trust takes years to build and only seconds to shatter.

Friends give you the worst news with the best of intentions. Understand that friends come and go, but a precious few you should hold onto. The older you get, the more you need the people who knew you when you were young.
The people you care about, you never really say goodbye too. True friends are the people who are there for you unconditionally. They are the people who never question you and support you no matter what the circumstances are.
They are the people worth living for. In the end we always return to the people that where there from the start. Side by side or miles apart, friends are forever close to your heart.
This person is one you could forever talk to. This person is your soul mate, your best friend. The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch with, never say a word, and walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you have ever had.
Maybe some people just aren't meant to stay in our lives forever, maybe some people are just passing through. It's like some people just come through our lives to bring us something, a lesson we need to learn, and that's why they are there.
In the end we always go back to the people that were there from the start. Somewhere between summer ending and school starting, we've gone in our own directions.
