Nygel Jones shares about meaningful teen friendships.
As this year comes to an end, looking back on it makes me realize how tough this year was for me. The experiences I had, and the challenges I faced really took a toll on me.
Of course, I had my parents to help and support me, but is that not what parents are for? I love them dearly, but I’d also like to give a special thank you to my friends, who were a constant support for me. I can be myself with my friends without worrying about them judging me. I am blessed to have found a group of people that I can claim as good friends, all of whom are supportive and truly care for me. These are quality friends, the kind that you keep even if you move away or go to different colleges.
To be gifted with their presence is a splendid thing, and it’s always a pleasure to speak with them. They have my back as I have theirs, just like friendships should be. Words are unable to describe how much I admire my friends, but let’s just say, I am forever grateful for having them in my life. They remind me that people don’t have to be related to you to be your family.
