But life is not a movie and people will always let you down. Always. Why? Because we are all human and we make mistakes. I know I have let my best friends down countless of times as well. So if we were to give up every friend that let us down, we'd have none. Someone once told me, "People are always going to let you down, but it's up to you to decide which ones are worth forgiving." I hope I never forget that. I never want to lose an amazing friend because I was too stubborn to forgive. And I hope that when I let my best friends down, they will be able to forgive me. I found this poem online and I love it so I thought I'd share:
by Melissa Magstaff
The title we chose
But what does it mean to be "best friends"?
You should see each other every day?
Well that's not true for you and me
Should silly little fights get in our way?
Only if that's how it's meant to be
Should we give?
Should we borrow?
Should we dance like there's no tomorrow?
Secrets are traded
Hugs and smiles are shared
Tears are shed
Love is spread
We know that we both really cared
I smile, you smile
You cry, I cry
I wish, you wish
You die, I die
If you fall
I'll help you up
And if you call
I'll always pick up
Best Friends Forever
The promise we made
And I know in my heart
That it will never fade.
I hope that all my best friends out there know how much I love and care about them. I'm grateful for my friends every single day and they mean the world to me.
"If you're alone, I'll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I'll be your shoulder. If you want a hug, I'll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I'll be your smile. But anytime you need a friend, I'll just be me."
