The Importance of Friendship

Mother Theresa once said that loneliness is the most terrible poverty.
I couldn't agree more. You can be the richest man in the world but with no friends--with no one to care and love you...existence becomes extremely undesirable. Or you can be the poorest man, but with love, you can find the strength to carry on. Humans are naturally social creatures. We need one another. We care for one another. We love one another. There is no greater satisfaction than finding a person to love and be loved.

I am extremely fortunate to find a handful of friends that love me unconditionally, every bit of my existence. Friends that supports every step or path I choose to take in life. Friends that take me as I am without an ounce of resistance. Friends that taught me to be just a loving. You need loving and caring people in your life. It is absolutely essential for your well-being.

Don't ever think you can walk this Earth alone. Don't let your pride interfere with your happiness.
