After reading one of my previous posts, I kind of reconsider what I said about going over to someone and asking them straight up to be friends. I haven’t done that before and I don’t know if I ever will.
A montage of all of my friends’ faces came to mind, as well as a brief flashback on how each one of them became my friend. And then I realized, you don’t talk about becoming friends, it just happens. The agreement is not done verbally, because it is felt.

My friends and I started out as one another’s classmate until we begun spending time together more often. Our relationship developed until we know it in our hearts that we’re friends. We eventually became more comfortable with each other, sharing our thoughts and opinions became much easier, private jokes were formed, laughing hard became our past time, we have the knowing smile, we became each other’s critic, bully, and fan all at the same time, we sing too much and scream a lot, we also take a great deal of pictures everyday, we’re serious when we have to and we have fun every second, we are comfortable even with the silence, and we don’t even have to try coz it’s always a good time when we’re together. No one did ask another if we could be friends or something. It naturally happened. The kind of agreement you never have to talk about. The kind of agreement you never discuss.
Just because you ask someone to be friends and they say yes doesn’t mean the two of you are actually friends. Friendship has a deeper sense to it more than just that. And it grows even more if you know how to nurture it.
Our friends are one of the best things that happened to us. And I know that I will keep mine forever. Even if forever isn’t enough. Even if forever doesn’t exist. This is the forever that I choose to believe in.
