A Lesson on Friendship

"Oh my god I would never be her friend", were one of the many lines I use to say about my best friend now. Friends are hard to come by these days, there are some who you think you can trust. While the others turn out to be people, you never thought they would be.

You never know if the person who you judge could be the best friend that you ever had.
