Without friendships, the world would be an extremely lonely place to be. Where would I be without our weekly fixes of Nandos, our regular shopping trips to West Quay, our nights out and our cosy nights in. Life really wouldn't be the same, and I know full well that I'm speaking on behalf of everyone when I highlight this particular point. Friends are like family to so many of us, and they are people we choose to share our lives with. We share good news, bad news, gossip, what we missed on the television, etc etc.
The truth is, friends are a hugely important part of us. We lose some, we gain some. Throughout life, we finally see who is meant to be with us, and who isn't. The people that are worth knowing until we are old and grey, and sharing stories of the night we got absolutely wasted in Wahoo. I know full well that the friends I have at the moment, are the kind of people I want to know until I die. I now know what everyone meant when they said "Uni friends are for life".
So the reason for this blog post is to show my love to the amazing friends I have in my life at the moment. To say thank you for being there for me, for sharing some of the best laughs and memories as well. I could sit here forever and list every little hilarious thing, but I honestly think I'd be here all evening.
So if you've got fantastic friends in your life, tell them. Say how much you appreciate them, love them, and thank them for the good times. If they are good enough friends, then they'll be there for you through thick and thin.
Let's all celebrate the true meaning of friendship!
