Losing a friend to addiction changes a persons outlook on life. At this point, you only see the arguments and name-calling. My friend was called many names by so many because of drug use. They believed the addiction altered his inner person and there was no way for him to turn back. What could my friend due to change the state of his relationships? I saw the tears roll down my friends eyes, while he screamed, " F my life." He was hurt by the remarks of the one's he called "friends". It was time to build my friend up! Therefore, we found a new group of people to hang with. They really helped my friend gain confidence through love and support. Diverting to a supportive crowd saved my friends life. Today, we both thrive in life through a supportive group of individuals. We never judge but compliment one another to exemplify grace. We remain friends because, I never knocked my friend but built him up. Positivity can be used as a seed, while constant positivity waters the seed.
