Friends are some of the most important people in your life. They are as important as your family. Think about when you entered school and when you finished school. Think of the time when you found a person of the same age in your life next to the one you found in your music or dance class.
The family is by default, that is , you know when you are born into all your relationships with family members. But you have the opportunity to choose who you want to be friends with. Friendship is a type of relationship between two people that does not rely on any business transaction but on mutual respect.
