Friends or Family

By silver123star Apr 20, 2013 564 Words
I believe that friends and family are the true cause of happiness. When you have friends and family, you have those who care for you. When you have them, you don’t really need anything else. When you have a family and some really good friends, you know that they will always be there for you. You know that you can always count on them, and you definitely know that you can trust them with a secret or anything personal. When you are surrounded by them, you realize that nothing in the world can ever replace them. Nothing can ever replace the memories that you have. No matter how much money, or how famous, or how glamorous you are, it wouldn’t be that great if you didn’t have friends or a family. I would never trade them in for anything. I would like to be rich, have pretty shoes, expensive purses, own a ton of make-up, and have a whole closet full of clothes. But my family and my friends are much more important. They don’t even care about what I look like or what I wear. I could come to school in pajamas or wake up looking like a freak, and it wouldn’t matter. They don’t care about looks. And, they really don’t care that I’m NOT perfect. I don’t have to put on an act like I’m all that just to hang out with them. I could act like a total loser and dress up in weird stuff a target holding a mop or a huge crown at the mall and they would start laughing. People would be looking at us like we wear crazy. But we would just laugh knowing that we look retarded. They wouldn’t say, “I don’t know her” or something like that. Okay, maybe they would, but that is the fun part. Sometimes I might do another goofy thing like ride a small bike down the street or dance like a maniac. Sometimes, I’ll get bored and say something random like “I like eggs” and my friends wouldn’t make a face. My family would start laughing instead. I remember this one time, my friends little brother through my cell phone at my head. It hurt but it was really funny. And then another time, my friends came over and we made dinner for my brother. We mad a whole buffet of Mac and Cheese. Even though nobody ate it, it was still fun. We would have a billion memories we can laugh about from a year from now. If you have only money, you will be lonely and the only thing you can do is buy things that don’t really have any value if you have no one to share it with. Being lonely in a huge house and with lots of stuff just lying around might be great for show and all, but when it comes to things that truly matter, friends and family, are what’s really important. If I were rich, I would like it at first, but then it would get annoying. Not really knowing who your friends are or not knowing who is using you and who is really there for you. Then, only having some friends, only because they were as rich as you. I’m not saying you don’t need money, because everybody needs some. But it’s not the most important thing.
