To have a friend you first need to be one. These friendship quotes couldn’t have said it better. Having friends is a wonderful thing that can enrich your life.
Friends come our way for a lot of reasons; to share life’s experiences, to teach us and add value to our lives. Therefore, we need to cherish those friendships.
We sometimes lose touch with some friends or have those friends we would like to show more appreciation to for being in our lives. As a result, friendships require that we put others before ourselves at times.
A friend can provide an immense amount of support and comfort in good times and in bad times. However, friendship is not easy, like all relationships it requires our time and effort.
