Let's talk about friendships: ADULT friendships.
As a child, I used to pray for friends. I didn't have them, and I always wanted them. Then, in 7th grade, like magic--my prayers seemed answered. I suddenly had three best friends--a girl gang. Then, as quickly as it began, it ended in 10th grade after they spread rumors about me, and ostracized me from sitting with them in the school cafeteria. This experience solidified that I can only depend on my family--my parents and my older brother.
