This is something that has been on my mind quite a bit recently. It is extremely important to have people in your life that are not only there for you, but also push you to be a better person and encourage you when you may not believe in yourself. I am very fortunate to have people like this in my life, however I feel like it has taken me some time to realize what is truly meaningful in a friendship. It is not about how many friends you have but about the quality in the friendships you choose to have in your life. As I have gotten older I have also realized that it is harder to keep frienships if you do not work at them but that it is important to work on the ones that keep you going. Having friends is not about one upping each other or making them look bad so you feel better about yourself but about motivating and supporting one another through the good, the bad and the ugly. Just some food for thought. What is important to you in a friendship?
