20 Photos That Prove True Friendship Knows No Bounds

“What sweetness is left in life, if you take away friendship? Robbing life of friendship is like robbing the world of the sun. A true friend is more to be esteemed than kinsfolk.” -- Marcus Tullius Cicero

Finding a true friend in life is a blessing, and real friendship is based on trust, respect, love, and care. A truly worthwhile friendship is one where both parties look at the bond in the same light, they have a shared understanding of what the connection truly means. If the terms are agreed upon by both, there is no right or wrong.

As love knows no boundaries, true friends do not have to share interests or do not have to belong to the same species.

There are all kinds of unforgettable friendships in this world, and some of the best happen to be between humans and animals.

We are all creatures of the same world, and friendship is all about the emotions.

The following compilation contains heartwarming photos of unlikely besties and unexpected acts of true friendship, and they will make you voice a loud “awww”!

Courage where we are afraid, Power where we are weak, Loyalty where we would betray ourselves… Trust that we have lost long before. Beauty where we find ourselves ugly, Not to be alone where we feel lonely… No prejudices where we have already presented ourselves with an opinion Common paths, where we have lost the sight of our goal …… …. thanks our animals !!! . ——— .

Definitely in my feelings this Sunday. Wanted to write something to get it off my chest. Had some things happen that made me disappointed more than anything, but I know that my perception is at a different vantage point. I’m adopted into a mostly white family, I’m married to a hispanic woman, I served in the Marines along side all races enough that I judge a man or woman by their actions individually. With that being said, I can’t expect everyone to do the same. Reality is racism is real and very present today, but I hope we can combat that with pictures and acts of unity. Out of all my pictures, this one always stands out to me. Universally from top to bottom you can feel love. No black or white, large small, male or female. Genuine positive emotion. I will continue to post pictures, videos, and everything I can to send out those vibes. You never know who needs it. I love that little girl and her family and will continue to support them in any way that I can. PS. Yes I edited those words on my back not to full anyone, but to be clear of my message. My strength is nothing compared to hers. Period. #powerlifting #weightlifting #gym #gymlife #gymrat #marine #fitness #fitnessmotivation #fitnessaddict #bigboy #beastmode #fitnessmotivation #powerliftingmotivation #gametime #motivation #inspiration #workhard #workout #grinding #grindmode #iammilitarymuscle #lockitoutbarbell #squat #bench #deadlift #garagegym #charity #helpthekids #progeria #happy
