Friendship to me is someone who is as close as blood, someone you truly love and can count on, 24/7, someone you want to include in all areas of your life. A friend will cry or laugh with you, will always want to protect you and feel you will be there for them as well, in the same exact way. A friend is loyal and will never let you down or try to deceive you. Someone who will listen and advise but will understand if you choose another way, but will stand by you regardless. True friendship is rare but possible.
