I learnt how to love unconditionally through friendship.
Friends are the family you can choose.
We are fully independent from each other, we accept each other for who we are, no matter how we change and how we grow.
We support each other unconditionally, because there are no conflicts of interest between our selves.
There are no expectations and dependencies, only the trust that your friend is going to do their damnest best to be there when you need them and that they’ll be there to celebrate your victories and support you through you downfalls.
Friendship is and always will be, to be the ultimate form of relationship any human being can form with another.
And because of that, romantic partnership, note how I say partnership and not relationship, requires that friendship be the base and foundation for it.
And for that reason, within itself, friendship is superior.
