Have you ever heard the saying, “True friends are like diamonds precious but rare. Fake friends are like fall leaves found everywhere.”? It’s true. Mom used to say something similar. She’d say, “pick your friends”.
But you know, she never really explained what she meant. What she really meant to say is that pick good friends. Pick friends that are nice with good morals and with a good sense of judgment. Pick friends like you that are honest, friendly, and that are a good influence. Pick friends that are smart and worldly and won’t cheat on you or stab your back.
When I think my long life friends, friends I’ve known for 20 years or more, I think about how we are the same, the history we’ve shared, and how thankful I am to have had such friends. When you are younger and busy working, you think you have time to make friends. I’d say, don’t wait. Make friends now when you’re young and full of energy.
Your life friends will probably start to come to you when you’re in Jr. High School or High School. Take advantage of that time and don’t hurry to start working. Make friends and chose them wisely.
