This social media-driven world will tell you that you need thousands, if not millions of friends in order to be worthy, to be happy.

But sometimes you just need one.

One really good friend who will truly listen without judgment or interruption. Who will stand by your side through the thick and thin.

Whose steady hand will keep you upright when you feel like you might fall.

One good friend who introduces you to her good friends. Resulting in new friends or at the very least new acquaintances of a friend which is more than what you started with.

One friend to reach out, to call, to show up on your doorstep when loneliness looms over you.

One friend to remind you that you are not alone.

One friend who understands what you are going through. Someone who might not have walked in your shoes but who has been on the same path.

You don’t need hundreds, thousands, and certainly not millions of friends to be happy in this world.

You just need one.
