Inspirational quotes about friends and family

Friends and family are a very important part of your life. They mean the world to you but once in while it's good to remember how much you love them. Thanks to all the things we have to do every day, the struggles we face, the busy schedules and the impossible days, we sometimes lose perspective when it comes to the ones who are dearest and nearest to us: our awesome family and our irreplaceable friends.

Have you wondered why is it that when it comes to family and friends we sometimes treat them so bad, we hurt them with selfishness and careless? It's probably because we know we can, that they can take it, they know us, they get us so they gave us passes on a lot of crap we send their way.
