I made a new friend today and it felt amazing. I had forgotten the excitement of getting to know someone, the easy flow of conversation, the joy and laughter that goes with that, how the world feels a much richer place, how loneliness has to take a rest for a while. We met yesterday and immediately clicked, it felt as if I had known him forever, it was like meeting a long lost member of my family. He asked me today what are friends and what is friendship. I gave him this answer. A friend is someone who cares for you, who you can trust and trusts you and you lights up your day. A friend is someone you can spend quality time together, share your fears and worries, learn new things. A friend is a precious being. What does friendship mean to you?
