In the daily drama and comedy, that is life, it’s nice to have friends. While family is extremely important, friends are a different support system of your choosing.

You may choose them because you’re both polar opposites of each other and find this interesting and intriguing. Often, friends become “friends” because they naturally gravitate towards each other because of similar personalities and temperaments. Sometimes it’s just circumstances that bring two individuals together who then become friends.
