I've wanted to do this for awhile. I keep a journal...but it's for my own thoughts. This is stuff in my life I want to share with the world.
The last few days have made me ponder what a true friend is.
I have long time friends that would drop anything and help me out. They have, and I have done the same in return. They are my "family", even though they come from different parents.
There are cyber friends...the ones you meet through the internet. Your Facebook buddies, your "Tweeps", your journal readers. Maybe you'll meet up...and realize, hey, we make better friends online then we do in real life. Maybe you'll never meet them because they're in a different country, a different continent even...but they are still your friends...sometimes more so then "real" life people.
I guess my point (really, I do have one!) is simply this...embrace the friends you do have, let the toxic ones go. There are some people who will be there no matter what...whatever the situation or circumstance. There are others who...well, make their mark and pass through.
