A lesson on Friendship
I cannot ease your aching heart
Nor take your pain away.
But let me stay and take your hand
and walk with you today.
I’ll listen when you need to talk,
I’ll wipe away your tears.
I’ll share your worries when they come
I’ll help you face your fears.
I’m here and I will stand by you
on each hill you have to climb.
So take my hand, let’s face the world
and live just one more day at a time
You’re not alone for I’m still here
I’ll go the extra mile
And when your grief is easier
I’ll help you learn to smile.
Many people will walk into your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart!
You must be clear in your mind about what you want for your life. Set your standards high. Believe that you deserve the best. Do not compromise and lower your standards against your better judgment. Do not do anything that makes you unhappy in order to keep someone in your life; in the end you will regret it.

After awhile, they decided to distance themselves one from the other to stop being wounded.
As they did this, they began to die… alone and frozen. So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth. Wisely, they decided to go back to being together. This way they learned to live with the little wounds that were caused by the close relationship with their companion, but the most important part of it, was the heat that came from the others that enabled them to survive

We might not get along all the time but no man stands alone and we need one another.
