“A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.”¬† William Shakespeare

Let’s be honest, if you have a friend like this, you have a soul mate and not just a friend. True friendships are rare and very special. Today, sadly, friendship has become almost as disposable as the rest of our life! I am still young and my childhood feels like a lifetime ago. We never had expiry dates on anything (let alone non food items)! Friendships spanned a lifetime even if people crossed the Atlantic (and this was at a time when Internet did not exist freely and calling abroad cost more per minute than the average¬†hourly wage). And yet today, I will walk past someone I attended school with and they will simply walk past me without even a blink of an eyelash. So if you have a friend who meets Mr Shakespeare’s definition, then treasure them, for they are a rarity indeed!
