This year I am extremely thankful for the amazing group of college friends I have. After my first heartbreak, my friends no matter where they were or how busy, they rushed to my side. They were thinking of me and checking in whether it was a text message, a phone call or making time for me in person. Two of my best friends in the east coast, texted me and offered to call me. During these calls, they listened to me rant. They attentively paid attention to every word I said and were there through the rollercoaster of emotions I was experiencing. I didn’t expect them to understand. All I need was someone to listen and they were perfect. They offered me advice, unconditional support and comfort.
This summer, I had a lot of people come in and out of my life. However, my college friends were my go-to. They showed me what it was like to have true friends. Friends for life. And my second family.
I truly felt like the luckiest person to have friends like them. I realized that of course boyfriends can come and go but my friends are the one thing I will never be able to let go. I trust them with everything and I will do anything for them.
Each of my friends are each different and unique and can provide a different perspective. There are certain people I turn to for relationship advice, others I go to for a gym buddy and some I go to as travel partners. They are all doing different majors and want to go into different fields. They are also from all over the world. I truly count myself lucky have met them.
