Some of the best friends many of us have are the friends we’ve had the longest. I know that some of my best friends have gone through many different life experiences with me and are still around, so they feel extra close. These are the friends you don’t have to see very often, yet you still feel a deep connection with them. In many cases, someone’s best friends are those they made during adolescent years when they were first learning to trust and look at life in ways beyond the values and viewpoints of their immediate families.
Stick with friends and they will stick with you. Walk through their difficult life circumstances, and they will walk through yours with you.
Prescription: If you have a close friend you trust, send them a note or card telling them how you feel.
