Friends—they’re something we all need. They help buoy us up in times of trial. They make us laugh with their inside jokes and running gags. They are the people you can share your deepest secrets and feelings with. Yes, everyone needs a friend.
Yet, almost from the moment we enter kindergarten, we begin separating into groups. Now the groups are not necessarily bad. It’s when you start excluding others from the group.
You may not be shutting out other peers on purpose. Sometimes we are so self-involved we fail to see those lonely people wandering past us. Open your eyes and your heart, try harder to be aware of those around you. Alone is such difficult thing to be, and yet it is so easy to fix. Befriend all you meet and you’ll never have a shortage of supporters when you need them.
