There's those people who can sell out their friends whom they've known for a life time for some guy or girl they met 2 minutes ago. It's sad, really. But if you can do that, you were never a good friend, you never had a good friend, you don't really have friends, all you have is a want for a higher feeling with in yourself. And honestly that's pathetic.
I wouldn't give up my friends or family for the world, because they are my world, they're my support system and keep me for driving myself mad, by driving me mad with their own antics =P. And I would be a moron for giving that up. I could have nothing and have everything with love and friendship, and when I spend time with my buds, I realize how much they really mean to me.
So go out today and hang out with your friend, stop being so "emo," and open you eyes for you eyeliner covered lids and see what the world is about, it's not going to revolve around you 24/7, it revolves around moments with the ones you love.
