As I have gotten older I have realized the significance of true friendship in my life. It has become apparent that the majority of people who care about me - I mean really genuinely care about what's going on in my life - are my friends.
Embrace it when you find that person. Hold on to them tight. Don't let them go. They're that person you can spend every day with knowing they accept you...all of you. Everyone has baggage. Find someone who loves you enough to help you unpack it. When you find that person every inch of your body will know. You'll realize life without this person will never be the same.
