I believe that everything happens for a reason.

things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right,
you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself,
and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

This life is what you make it.
Not matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes,

The ones that stay with you through everything -
they're your true best friends.
Don't let go of them.
Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world.

and too pleasing.
