Trust. A word that we value very greatly. A word we use to describe faith. Love-a word with a huge meaning. It can mean you care deeply or it can describe your fondness towards something, but it is a word we use frequently. Cherish is the word you use to describe how much something means to you. How much you will and care for that one thing. All of these words describe what a friend should mean to you.
Friends are the ones who mean the most, the people we hold to our hearts dearly. They are your family away from family or the people you believe in the most. They are by your side through thick and thin. They are also the people that you can hang out with and won’t shy away from your weirdness. They would join in and express their weirdness with you. It doesn’t matter if you have a school full of friends or if you only have one friend. Friends are the people you should trust, love, and cherish. Friends are also people who you can be yourself around. People who would not care if you are weird, sarcastic, or people you can be “rude” to and know that you do not mean it. Friends are the ones you can joke around with and just give them a look and they know exactly what you are talking or thinking about.
If you would not describe your friends as this or as your family, then you probably need some new friends.
