I recently bump into an old friend in facebook, she is my former high school classmate somewhat 13 years back. She praise me on how different I look now that pull her hesitancy to approve my friend request at first. I feel flattered and surprised at first, I am best well known as geek and nerdy of all generation can't change that much!
But the truth of the matter is, I hardly spoke to her back then, she was just one of the dozen of people who happen to be my classmate. After exchanging a little more note, I was starting to regret why I didn't know this friend this well back then.

I must admit, I did regret on some choices of friend I made years ago. Especially as teenager, little did I realise that friend can affect loads of your decision making, priority and the way you look at your life. In result, not just I waste few of my good youthful year pursuing vanity stuff and pride, but the heartache, the sorrow, and disappointment when you know whom you labelled as "best friend" or "soul mate" does not behave like one in return, and end up leaving you or betraying you on their convenience.
But as many said, Mistake is the best teacher. I start to retrack my path. Now that I've grew wiser (yes, from learning my mistake!) my life is much happier and simpler. God had bring many of His best people to be my best friend. And when He did, these friends and their friendship not only lasted until we all die. But it last for eternity.
