the people who stayed during your rough times will most definitely be the same people that will stay in your life for good. So hear me out, whether you’re an incoming college freshman or someone who is already trekking this unknown territory I’m going to leave soon (in four months! to be specific):
Keep the people who stayed for poorer or for richer, through sickness and health, no matter how few they may be. Because in the end, these are the relationships worth fighting for. And when you grow older, they are the ones you’ll be crying with on the night before your wedding day. They will listen to your rants and raves, no matter how silly or stupid they may be.
And they will love you relentlessly, unconditionally. Just like Jesus. 🙂
