All my family are the people who have been important in my life. My parents, grandparents, sisters, brothers, uncle, aunties, cousins, because every time when I had problem there here. They take care on me since I was born and they help me all the time to make the right choose. My family are composed only by people who know wow to make others feel better, that's why I love them and why they have been important in my life.

My grandparents are very important to me, because they have been taking care of me sincee i was born. They supports a lot to my mother because she is single mother and she has to work many hours at day, so, my grandparents look after me and my little brother.

I have never had best friends in my childhood because I was shy and I did not have many relationships, At school, I had always afraid to talk with girls so I just spent time with boys. Although I have two siblings and with them, I shared my childhood, I used to play plenty of time with my brother, we bothered my sister, etc.. It was a really great childhood in Colombia.

I'm closer to my uncle's partner and my mother has. From my friends I am very close to a childhood friend and my best friends in the village where I live and nearby towns.The truth is that all people have been important because I have always learned something from them.

My sister is very important to me. i can't imagine what would happen without her in my life. she is like a friend of mine, she always listens to me and gives me advice to get over my problems. I regularly have my own presents from my sister everytime she comes back home after working or travelling. That makes me so happy and love her more.

The most important people in my life are my parents. They have always believed in me and helped in difficult moments. Another very important person is Monica, my cousin. I spend a lot of time with her!

Of course, is my mother, she is a very kind mother, like a godmother in the fairy tale. She makes me feel comfortable and safe, of course. : )

My best friend Vika is 1 year older than me, but looks like a little pretty girl. She is short and she does not like it. I think it is funny!
I like her appearance, she is very beautiful, with blond hair and blue-grey eyes. We met 10 years ago, but first we did not get along. Then we became friends and spent a lot of time together. Every summer we swam in her pool and every summer we made concerts near the porch for grandmothers and children. I remember we cooked dinner on her birthday and then rushed boiled potatoes from the balcony. We still make some kinds of nonsense together!
Vika has a small sister Arina who loves me very much!
We quarrel very rarely and I sure that I would never find such friend as Vika!

There are three important people in my life. They are my best friends. We had have a frendship for eges. Before we spend a lot of time together. We hung out, had a walk, played volley and so on. But no we cant meet very often, because some of them has his own family or another reasons. And somehow, even under all these reasons we keep tradition, each our birthday we selebrate together and its briliant time. I beleave that our trardition wont be broke down.

I think all people that appeared in my life are important, because all of them gave me some useful life lessons. Some of them moved to another place, with some I just fell out, but I still know that they are important for me.

3 other girls and me are best friends. But now, we are having some problems. Two of my friends are having an argument. Although we sometimes argue, this time is really serious. We are both sad. What should I do to save our friendship ?

Hi kawaiirain, sorry to hear that.
I wonder if the friends trust each other with their heart?? If so, it seems that the argument might be a little spice for their friendship!
But, if the friendship is easily clouded by a deceptive friend who enjoys inane babblings, they might need time to truly understand and build a better bond with each other.
What are they arguing? What do they want from each other? How serious and constructive are they to improve?...
I hope they are arguing on the same wavelength!
