Support systems come in many varieties, one of which that can last a lifetime is friendships. A true friend can tell you when you have toilet paper stuck to your shoe and not set you into a shame spiral. They can tell you the truth even when it might hurt. A long-lasting friendship will have ups and downs, fights, miles apart, infrequent communication but it rarely matters because the bonds of friendship are just that strong.
