"As people grow up they realize that it's less important to have more friends and more important to have real ones."I saw that on Tumblr, and then realized that as of late, that so applies to my life right now. I've been upset because a friend and I who were the best of friends had gotten into a huge fight over nothing, and now are no longer speaking. I was very hurt (and still am) about this because I feel like I have lost someone who I trusted and cared about. As we get older, things and people change greatly. I changed, and so has this person. I can't say that it was for the better or for the worst. It's just a part of life, and we all have to deal with this sometime or another.
Sometimes that happens with friends. We're no longer close to the ones who we think are going to be there for us forever. In reality, forever is a time period that is as long as we can make it out to be.
I do however know who my true friends are. They are the ones who I trust completely. They are the ones who I can call when I'm sad and ask for help and comfort. I realize that I'm not perfect and neither are they. However, they are the best. Some of them are across town. Others are across the country. One is even in a different country. This doesn't change the fact that they are the best friends that I can ever have. As I get older, I'm starting to realize that it's not about quantity, it's about quality. It's not about the number of Facebook friends you have; it's about the ones who you can actually talk to. I feel like it's a life lesson that everyone learns at some point or another.
In conclusion, out of all of the many quotes that I enjoy I feel like this one is my favorite because it pertains to my life at this moment. Finding quotes that pertain to your life right now always makes you feel better because you know that person understand what you are going through. Somehow that makes you feel less isolated and alone, which is the point of teen angst isn't it? Rebelling because you feel like you're the only one going through this rebellious stage of life and being completely over-dramatic. Got to love those hormones. But you're not alone. Quotes are great reminders of just that.
