It doesn’t matter if you have many friends or just one. Friends fill that space only a friend can do.
Relatives are great and of course are loyal but sometimes you need someone who is not so close but close enough to be at a distance and yet close. It is a paradox of understanding.
I can be myself with friends in a way I cannot with family. I love my family but my friends have a special place in my heart which can only be filled by them.
Enjoy your friends and appreciate the special part they contribute to your life.
