Friendly families!

By Fatima K - June 24, 2014

I've heard that 'friends are the family you pick' - or something along those lines - and you know what, I've come to learn that it's true. 

Family is family and I love them, don't get me wrong, but you haven't really got a choice, and we all have those few relatives that leave us questioning if we really are related to them! We have the ones that can't hear too well, others that hear everything and things that were never said, and then there are those lovely relatives that are also your best friends, have been there all your life - the ones you feel over protective about. There are those you rarely see and supportive aunts and uncles that you know have helped make things so much easier, and also the younger family members, who you've watched grow - they also happen to be a constant reminder that you yourself are getting old! That kinda sums up my family in a very optimistic light - please note I have rather a large family and not all families are the same :) 

Friends :) just thinking about them puts a smile on my face, remembering how we met, how we've been silly, brutally honest, fallen out/made up and always looking out for each other. And I have quite a diverse group of friends - I count myself lucky. What I love about my friends is that we all have our own things going on, but there, at the end of it all - and all the way through - we have each other. Just a simple text or phone call can confirm it! 

Family are important, they are very important, they help shape your life, and present or not, they always have a significant impact on our lives, good and bad. What I've found about my friends and family is that no matter how far, we will always be friends and there for each other. 

So people, let's streangthen our bonds, fix those broken ties, and remember, you never know what lies ahead of you. 

Speaking of friends, my good friend Nazreen is doing some pretty amazing things which can be found here :) check it out!
