Life takes its turns, people come and go, relationships end, but a true friend is someone who will be by your side forever.
Friendships, the ones that are true and genuine at least, are not something that you can find easily these days.
The world is filled with people who have higher agendas, who are there until you benefit them and after that, they are nowhere to be found.
They will be there when everything is good, when you are happy, but in your time of need, they disappear. Instead of being there, they turn their back.
To have someone who knows you deep inside, someone who loves you unconditionally and someone who will always be sincere and honest with you, is something to be valued.
It’s time to take a moment and send that ‘Thank you for being my friend’ text to your friend. We get so caught up with life that we forget to say to our friends just how much they mean to us.

Leah Lee – Writer. Dreamer. Adventurer. Eternal Optimist.
I am an English language and literature professor and writing came naturally alongside that. It was something I did for me until I decided to share it with the rest of the world.
I write about love, emotions, relationship issues and ways to solve them and most importantly about empowering women to become the best versions of themselves.
My inspiration comes from all that I’ve been through in life, and it was a bumpy road but full of valuable lessons. I hope that my experience will do some good to all of those who like to read my work.
