"A friend is one who knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, aand still, gently allows you to grow." Love the sentiment & image. But its not by THE William Shakespeare.
I have a handful of people like this in life. I’ve learned who my true friends are and stopped letting FAKE people who think they know me in my world! It’s better to have 4 quarters then 100 pennies— just saying!
