other people who are willing to tell you who you are,
which are usually judgmental people ...
we should really surround ourselves with the ones
that adore us and believe in the highest of us.

they're your true best friends.
Don't let go of them.
Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world.

And the person who was just a friend is...
suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with.

and you can become a leader among men.
