I say it loud and clear: in this world there are people made to give happiness, and I am lucky enough to have some next to me. They are those people who turn our world upside down, who change things and who kill us with laughter. But they are also those people who do not hesitate to reach out to us when we need it. In short, they are true friends.
Those people who, whatever happens, always know what to do, what to say and where to be. Those people with whom it seems to have a magical connection just lead us to live surrealist adventures that will remain forever in a corner of our heart. They are friends of the heart, those who teach and, above all, who leave indelible marks.
They are our point of reference when everything else fails, and they are our biggest smile when everything is going well. They are the ones who scold us unfiltered and outspoken when they think we are wrong, but they are also the first to congratulate us when we do things right.
"Friendship is a soul that lives in two bodies, a heart that lives in two souls".
Friends are our staff and our wings
They are those people who leave their mark, but without hurting, because the traces that friendship leaves on the skin are as deep as the scars, but they are invisible and pleasant like caresses. It's those sincere hugs that give us goosebumps and leave us breathless when we need them.
True friends are those people who become our staff and, at the same time, our wings, because they are the first ones who encourage us to fly and those who will always support us if we simply decide to walk. Because they are our compass, a guide in the face of fears and a light in the dark. They are the ones who bring out the best in us and help us fight against any adversity.
They are true friends and for this reason they are the family we choose. The one who listens to our stories, who does not get angry about nonsense and who gives us his hand while telling us "do not worry, we will come out".
These are party nights and afternoons over a cup of coffee. They are the most serious conversations together with the most heartfelt tears in the moments we would like to forget. They are the people who have helped us to be as we are, to bring out the best in us and to achieve, in part, the goals we set ourselves.
Because both the worst and the best moments in life are best lived in company. Friends are those people with whom we enjoy every moment when we are close to them, with whom we live life as if every moment were the last. They are the best aspect of every day.
They are those people who leave their mark, but without hurting, because the traces that friendship leaves on the skin are as deep as the scars, but they are invisible and pleasant like caresses.
They are those people who can be counted on the fingers of one hand
They are the people we choose, and that's why we choose them well. They can be counted on the fingers of one hand, but they are worth more than you can imagine. They are friends, friends of the heart and companions in battle. And for this they deserve to be recognized all their value whenever we can.
For this reason I am writing these lines, so that you can dedicate them to those people who are part of your life and who make your world a better place. Because they endure your falls and make you believe that it is nothing more than a small stumbling block. They make you the heroes of your story, because they give you the superpowers, the confidence, to be who you are today.
They are those people who will always be there. Who are able to communicate with you with a simple glance; after all you've lived together, words are too many. They are those "I love you" said without fear of being rejected, because friendship is the only love that does not go away with mistakes, on the contrary, it becomes stronger. To all of you I say thank you, thank you very much.
