To ask me to write down my values is like asking me to spill my soul onto a paper. What do I value? Well I value truth, I value friendship, I value happiness… The list can go on and on but it all falls under the same category- I value my faith and I value my religion.

A friendship is two ways; it’s something that takes time and effort from both sides to get to where you need to
