There is an absolute certainty: I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for my friends. Best friends, regular friends, colorful friends, just pure empathy with someone you can trust. It doesn’t matter the time or space between occasions, it doesn’t matter the purpose of our conversation, it really doesn’t bother anyone with anything. It’s one of the most joyful and freeing experiences in life. It can be ridiculous how consuming and smiling real love can be. Especially today, on the 25th birthday of one of my true friends. I feel blessed to be surrounded by the best people I know. I feel loved every day by every single one of them in their own way. There is no deal or trade that could negotiate this kind of relationship. Love is love.
