When I was little, I thought everything was the way it should be. I thought that nothing would ever change. I had great friends, great parents, and a loving family. One day, all of my friends moved away. I thought that I would never be able to make new friends, but I did. That day, I realized what friendship really means. I found that having friends not only means helping them, it also means letting them help you.
I was so sad for a long time, but then my friends made me happy again, and now, they say I am the happiest person they know. I have come so far now, and I have great friends, great parents, and a loving family, but I know things will change again. Now I know that my friends can get me through it.
