I value my friendships the most.
The friends around me have changed me for the better with each of their unique personalities. I have friends who are loud and outgoing, which helped me break through my timidness in my earlier years of high school. They put me in situations where I had to talk to someone new and always encouraged me when I had to talk in front of a crowd. My friends were also the ones who introduced me to new found interests, such as the sport "ultimate" and the video game "League of Legends." Through these interests, we have become even better friends. We might joke or annoy each other, but I know there will always be someone to talk to . I can speak about whatever is on my mind and they can do the same with me. I truly understood I could talk to my friends about anything when one of my closest friends shared his frustrations and damaged relationship with his father to me. He felt comfortable enough to share such a personal situation with me and as such made me value friendships a lot more. Being with them is truly a place where I can be myself. My friends are individuals who I have value and helped shape me throughout high school.
