    I was always a very dreamy child.  I wasn't very sociable.  I have since learned that I am an Asperger's female which is predominately make people socially isolated.

    I always was in fine company - I had God (being short of a lable).  I talked, loved nature, walked and enjoyed my 'loneliness'.  To me, I wasn't lonely - life was beautiful, but other children weren't tuned in to the same extent as me.  My experience of interactions with others weren't rewarding, so prefered my own company.  I knew it wasn't 'normal' to be unstimulated by others and I did crave 'normality' - friendships - because everyone else seemed to manage these alright.

    My fascination grew as to 'why do people behave in the way they do' and it is this query brought me to learn about psychology, health and social welfare issues.  I now understand people and how they work.

    People always have their reasons for behaving in the way they do, just because it clashes with your truth, doesnt mean that their truth isn't as valuable.

    What happened to God - my best friend?  Still with me (hehehe) and has always been there when needed.

    I have quality friendships nowadays and are always accepting of others.  I love my own company still and am never alone.

    I was only nine years old but I remember my best friend Scott Hargis. We did everything together, truly joined at the hip. When I was 11 his father, who was a police officer, took another job two cities away. I never saw Scott after that. I remember it being my first lesson in loneliness and what it means to say goodbye to someone.

    My best friend when I was six was a girl named Samantha, but we drifted apart because we had different interests sometime around the age of 11. We stayed acquaintances through high school but were really in different social groups and didn't do anything outside of school.

    When I was 8 I became friends with Heather and we were pretty much inseparable through high school. Sadly, after graduation we never really talked again. I only know what's going on in her life through Facebook. Looking at my yearbook there's a page-long thing promising we'll always be friends and I can always count on her. But I really think we kind of always knew our friendship wouldn't hold up in "the real world" and were both prepared to part ways at graduation. She is now more of a "career woman" in a big city and I'm more of the family woman preparing a life with my boyfriend and still unsure what I want to do career-wise.

    My father is  my best friend.
    I am never able to get over the fact that parents can be friends of their children.
    My father's love was the most powerful I’ve ever witnessed

    My best friend was Margo, we were the same age but I was a really skinny small kid and she was tall and very heavy.  We looked like Mutt and Jeff or Laurel and Hardy!  We lost touch many years ago.

    My best friend was Julie. She was cool, smart, witty, and listened. She's now married and living in another state with her family. We rarely talk anymore...life just took us in different directions.

    Man I remember my best friend from Elementary School. We both had the same Middle name and we were totally close. Ashley Hunt but one day I guess some problems happened and she had to move away-I had her number once years ago before she did but then later on when I tried it I couldn't find her. I am still trying to find her even to this day, I miss her and remember those fun times that I remember.

    I also have another Childhood friend and this one ends up on a happy note. Lets just say that Facebook was the reason that we were able to find each other. She's lived near my Grandmother's House for years and sometime after Ashley had disappeared from my life me and LeAnna became close friends/like sisters. Now we are still really close and she has a beautiful little daughter of her own.

    My best friend was Zacob, we together did many mischiefs. We were the naughtiest buddies in the class. Teacher always ask us for any kind of nastiness. I cannot forget those days in my entire life. Sadly we are not in touch now, because I moved to another place. I miss you Zacob.
