I group my friends into 3 categories.
Family: Those who are dearest to your heart. They will always come first.
True friends: Those who you can always count on, no matter the distance or the time spent apart. They will always be there for you, to lend a listening ear, to share your feelings, to guide you through life. They may have different interests and lifestyles, but you share an unbreakable bond.
Lifestyle friends: People whom you hang out with for certain type of activities, and discussions and banter will be limited to those activities. Conversations will probably center around your common activities. Lifestyles change, hence this group of friends will also change.
When you’re dead, people won’t remember you.
Celebrate people’s presence when they’re alive. Appreciate them and spend time with them. There’s no point in throwing a bigass funeral to commemorate a life. It’s over anyway. You should had made your impact where and when you had wanted to. I dislike attending funerals because people attend with a solemn face and mourn – whatever for? I only want to know if the person lived well, was happy, and died peacefully. I’d prefer to remember the moments I spent with the person.
