Friendship means so much to me. My Dad said he underestimated the power of friendship when he was younger. I've found it difficult to build up strong relationships with people in my early 20's as my job was contractual and overseas. Whilst it meant I met a lot of new people my time with them was often for 6 months max. In the last few years I have based myself in England and it has enabled me to really build up stronger bonds with friends from school and from various jobs. I love having a social network of people who make my life so much better. Friends are there to enjoy life with, to share problems and issues with and to help you if you get stuck. Building memories with people I care about is what makes life so great. I strive to share as many great experiences with my friends as possible. Going through good and bad times with your friends make you who you are and I would hate to be without them!
