  "True Friends do these things"

By: Despoina

~True Friends do these things~

They come when you least expect them, to remind you that you’re not alone.

They share their deepest thoughts, fears, and dreams with you,  because they trust you.

They scold you when you think or act stupid, because they hate to see you suffer.

They tell you the truth, good or bad.

True Friends check to see how you’re doing, because they care.

They know whether you’re not well, because they can feel it.

They call you at 3am, when you’re sleepless, to comfort you.

True friends do these things...

True Friends accept all your flaws, because nobody’s perfect.

They hear your silence, because it speaks louder than words.

They tell you silly jokes to make you smile, because your sadness saddens them more.

They get drunk with you, just because.

True Friends  hold your hand, in every possible way, even from afar.

They forgive you even when you hurt them,   because they love you.

They like your inner child, because it’s genuine. 

True Friends do these things... 

True Friends give their all to you, because you deserve to be happy.

True Friends accept you as you are.

  6. The luxury Rolex Watches is an investment in the future;?A legacy that can be passed down from generation to generation.Perhaps the owner received their Luxury Breitling Watches?
    through the passage of a family member.?In this case, the Rolex Submariner Watches is valued for sentimental - as well as monetary value.While a Original Omega Watches can be expensive, it is wise to remember that you buy more than just a 1:1 IWC.The unfortunate truth is that whilst it is possible to get discounts on Hermes handbags.

  7. Hermes Handbags Replica Handbags are a package series, as the origin of this package we all must have very clear.?I want a Rolex Daytona
