You know, I was gonna write something long about this, but I don't think I have to. I have always felt closer to the outcasts and the ones nobody thinks are friend-worthy. Probably because I am that person (trust me, I am more of an outcast than any of you will know). But when you are a friend, you don't care what others say or think, you stick by your friend and that's that.
That said, I have had a handful of friends who have stuck by me, even when I *know* it was terribly hard and they got a lot of criticism for it. Those people hold very special places in my heart, and I hope they know that.
