Even if one possess all of the wealth in the entire universe, it means nothing if they have no one to share it with. It means nothing if they don’t have someone to care for them. It means nothing if they don’t have someone to laugh and talk with.
True friends walk through life together. A real friend bears witness to whatever happens to you. With old friends there is a comforting familiarity. One can let down their guard and just be whoever they truly are without fear, shame, or guilt. A faithful friend is a treasure found.
Even if it’s just having someone to share your problems with, friends can help you cope with serious illness, the loss of a job or loved one, the breakup of a relationship, or any other challenges in life.
