I go to friends for support and direction and love.
Family played and plays a huge role, is a large determinant of the person I became. Those relationships loom large, I draw from them, consciously and unconsciously, every day.
But friendships have allowed me to see the person I might be, what potentialities lie hidden, masked by the family crest. In their company I can begin to strip away my lies, can begin to become who I really want to be.
They listen to what I say, they know my dreams, they hold me to my words.
I am lucky.
