High Expectations

Friends are not those who stand beside you because nobody is standing beside them. Friends are not those who ask how it happened but those who understand that reliving it for their curiosity won’t fix it. Friends are not the ones that first attend a celebration but those that spot the moments when you have nothing to celebrate. Friends don’t borrow clothes but borrow homes. Friends are not those who sleep over but those that stay awake when you can’t sleep at all. Friends are not the ones you take on a road trip but those you can always return to. Friends are not those who can ask for your help anytime but those who don’t need to ask at all. Friends are not those you drink your coffee with but those who sit next to you on a sidewalk with nothing to drink at all. Friends don’t wish you the best, friends try to make it happen. Friendship means seeing, not just looking.
