Looking back at my post, I kind of feel like a dick for saying that and I should've re-worded what I thought. I can see how life would get easier and seem to lighten up after making a friend, but if that friend leaves, the whole perspective of life can shift over the other way. Especially if you needed that friend in order to hold up that view of life before. Life may seem to get easier from making a friend, but if the friendship breaks, life may suddenly not seem so easy anymore. What I basically meant was that the whole thing cancels out..unless the friendship made lasts. And as far as I know, most friendships don't last forever (unfortunately).Don't listen to her, it's not true!
