“We’re born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we’re not alone”
Having friends around you, even if it is just for an hour. It can change your mood completely, for me anyway. If I ever feel down or lonely which is actually a lot of the time, having a friend(s) around you can really lighten my mood. Over the past 7/8 months my life has dramatically changed due to friendship. When you are young, you always find new friends and loose old friends. It is part of growing up. Sometimes it makes no sense at all why we all of a sudden grow apart from certain people who for ages, were a huge part of your life and who you are. I am a big believer in believing that things always happen for a reason. Even though sometimes it make no sense.. but it always falls into place at some point.
Me and my friends are currently 18/19. So we are all at that stage in life where we are finding out who we are, what we want to do, moving on and trying to make a living. All of my friends have an idea on what they want to be when we grow older. Me on the other hand, I don’t. I have struggled with this for years. I left school early, I have been winging it for the past few years. I feel isolated and confused when it comes to life. Although, one thing I will always be grateful for, is my friends for supporting me. They know who I am, they know my hobbies and my struggles. I look up to them in awe. In a way, I am very jealous of how smart, brave and amazing they are. To see them get accepted into University and college makes me happy. Even though I wont be going with them, I know whatever they do, they will boss it.
I can’t describe how I feel about them going away. I feel emotional, scared and jealous of them leaving. I will miss them beyond words. But our friendship will always be in my heart and I know that we will always make it work to see each other.
To say you have friends is easy, but to know you actually have people in your life that love you unconditionally for who you are is so special. The nights where you are all sat around each other having chats about absolute nonsense. Talking about the weird things you like, listening to David Bowie and other legends, telling each other your weird secrets. It all makes a difference. We all have different personalities, different opinions. We bicker, we argue about stupid things that makes no sense but it makes our friendship stronger. My friends are some of the most inspiring people to be around. They give me advice that I would never of thought of myself. They inspire me to be who I am and not who people want me to be. They make my life better and easier. They make me feel at home.
We all struggle with something, big or small. But no matter how important or stupid the situation is, we all go out of our way to try to make things easier.
