This is an area that many take for granted but they shouldn’t. Having friends is not something that you can take for granted. Most of us have a good few casual friendships and people who we see often, if it is in work or in an academic environment, people who we have a laugh with for a period of time but once we move on we lose touch and drift apart. Sometimes these acquaintances become good, close friends but too often the relationship doesn’t change from beyond casual friendship.

How many of us have one or several really good friends? The type of friends that you can go to when you are happy, sad or just in need of closeness. Where you can feel loved for who you are, where you do not feel the need to put up any barriers or be cautious. I unfortunately believe that this is rare and when you find it you must cherish it always as it will bring so much joy and happiness to your life. A friendship is like any other relationship; what you put into it is what you get out of it.

I have made mistakes in this area where I have not made that extra effort towards friendships at times and where in the end you drift apart even though you once where very close. This is very sad and you do not realize until it is too late on what you missed out on. Sometimes you drift apart because your lives changes so much from each other and other times it can be distance and circumstances. We all make mistakes. If you are lucky enough to find one or more great friends, then it is up to you to nurture that friendship and to keep it going. The friendships that survive the years and distances are the friendships that last forever and that you always will cherish through life.

So here’s to my friends: I love you guys and you are the best. Let’s have many laughs to come.
