My greatest accomplishment is a simple one, one that cannot be proven or measured, one that is individual and can only be shared with that who had won it alongside me.
My greatest achievement is a being a part of a friendship. In the past year I had made a friend, I had many friends before, but this friendship was greater than the sum of any relationship I had the pleasure to be a part of in the past.
This year I have outgrown a view I had, a limited perspective of what I thought is and should be the peak of friendship; I let someone in. Having this friend, taught me the value of change, development and the connection that is not loosen, but grows stronger with doubts and challenges. A friendship that isn’t bound to location or interest of any, but the two.
