When I was young I thought I had the greatest friends in the world. And in many ways I did, but what I didn’t realize is that over time people change. Our needs, desires, ambitions will change. Time and space will separate us and we will part ways with many people whom we once thought to be inseparable.
Along the way we will discover that there will be those who will always speak truth to us. There will be those who will stand by us even when we are wrong. There will be those who will genuinely care how we are doing. And these people will be very, very few in number. A true friend is a rare gem. Protect this relationship.
