We all have a few people who have been constant supporting figures in all walks of our life. We may not realise it but they help us become who we are. They help us build a solid foundation and without them, we might lack in coping with the most basic of social situations. For some, it may be their parents, for some, their partner and well, for some, their friends.
Friends are considered as our second family. They are the people we spend most of our time with. Be it in school, college or work, we are constantly surrounded with friends and they play a major part in shaping our personality and our life. We tend to make major life choices keeping our friends in mind - from the college we choose to the city we decide to work in, friends are one of the most - if not the most influential people in our life.
Speaking of work, us adults have reached a point in our life where we don't get to spend much time with our childhood buddies. We have gone from staying over at each other's place during summer vacations to meeting once every three months to catch-up on the latest happenings in our lives, and that is fine too, because with age, you realise that you don't need to constantly be with your friends to maintain a friendship. Everyone is busy with their own lives and are secure enough in their friendship to know that no matter how infrequently you meet each other, you will still be as tight as you were before. So why not celebrate your bond this Friendship Day by FINALLY spending some time together and visiting a few of these places to reminisce about your school/college life together!
