Another Word For Love
Our greatest assets in life are our friends and family. They make us what we are and motivate us to what we are capable of being. That being said, they can also be the biggest pains in the ass! They are our most vicious critics, and nonstop, unrelenting advisors. They are also the worst audience to listen to our jokes and stories.
But, what is a friend? For sure it’s a bond because in ancestral times, friends hunted and fought off enemies together. They protected each other and freely gave up their lives in that commitment. Today, they just hunt single bars together, but still fight over what they find. But, of course, it’s more than that. Friends freely show their most vulnerable flaws to each other and often confess embarrassing and sometimes the most shameful secrets to each other. They will equally share counsel through the years and help to chug a twelve pack or two during the process. We will always value their understanding and opinions as just and sincere, sober or not.
Friends will also ride every wave of heartbreak and anguish in your life as well as the joyful and jubilant moments that often bless your life. They will be standing at your side when you marry, as well as being there for the delivery of their godchild. Sadly, one day, they will also be at your side during times of mourning and grief.
Friends don’t always agree with each other and even tend to debate and argue at the drop of a hat, but....they don’t abandon or forsake each other over a mix of angry words. Friends will hold your trust close to their hearts and will forever watch over your best interest. As a rule, friends will never get in your way....until the day you start to fall, then they are all over you.
