“I used to think that friends were the people that you could laugh and talk to. Now I know that friends are not just that, they are the people that touch your heart.

You could spend hours with them doing nothing at all and it can be the best time of your life, just because it was with them. They are the people you can share your secrets with, cry with, laugh with, and just have fun with. They don’t judge you or make you change. They accept you exactly as you are. They look at you and they see a great person, one they love spending time with. You share something in common and are tied together by memories, tears, laughs, and smiles. You’re tied together by love for the other. Friendship is the strangest but greatest thing in the world. I find my time with my friends the best times of my life. My friends are my heart, my soul, my fun, my laughter, tears, love and my life.

Although, personalities can changes with time. what I have come to realise is people who you grow up with can change considerably. You no longer talk, no longer see each other. When this happens it is one of the hardest things to grasp. I mean it took me close to a year to get over the people that I did not keep in touch with and I will tell you the TRUth it hurt.

Not seeing the people that you use to see every day.

Not talking to the people that you used to not go a day without talking to.
Not talking to the people that you thought you would never stop talking to.

People change and with change brings either positivity or negativity. I let negativity get to me. I was always down, putting up a fake smile, saying I was good when really I wasn’t. When all I wanted was someone to talk to. I had nobody to get advice from when I needed it. I had nobody to tell me what was right or wrong.

I tried to start life with a clean slate. You face decisions, make choices. You keep moving forward. But sooner or later there comes a time where you look back over where you have been in contrast with where you now are and wonder who you really are.

So one day I decided to sit down and fully reflect on my Tru life. I had to look at myself objectively and I honestly did not like what I saw. I began cutting people off slowly who had bad intentions for me, as well as people who only told me what I wanted to hear from them and did not ever challenge me to reach my fullest potential. I began surrounding myself with positive, successful, ambitions people.

Letting go of the past is not something you do once and poof! You’re free, healed, and happy! Rather, letting go is a journey. A journey that is often filled with both steps forwards and steps backward.

Then I ask myself again what are Tru Friends?
A Tru friend is a person who is there for you through thick and thin. A Tru friend does not judge you by the clothes you wear, or the size of your house. A Tru friend has love for you no matter what you both go through. A Tru Friend should always have a shoulder for you to cry on. A Tru friend stands by you in your times of need, and listens eagerly when you are excited about something. They notice and remember every little thing about you. They stand up for you when others do not.
Show me your friends and I will tell you the type of person you are!”
