Friends, family members, teammates... We all need a partner in crime to get through the different stages of life. In that sense, I guess I've always been a lucky guy, maybe my romantic life sucks big time but I've always had a good friend to rely on. I'm that type of person that doesn't do too well inside big groups, I much rather have one-on-one moments with people and develop those relationships into something truly valuable.

For as long as I remember, I've always had one or two friends that I heavily rely on. During my schoolboy years, I had a best friend for kinder-garden; a best friend for my first few years of elementary school (and a different clique for the final years); same thing happened for middle school and; during high school and Uni it evolved into a small group of people that I cherish today. Throughout July I talked about getting your mojo back and I think a crucial part of this process is acknowledging that there's someone out there that will be able to hold your hand and support you no matter what.

That's what true friends do: they grab your hand when you're scared, they jump with you when you receive good news and offer a shoulder to cry on when the skies are grey. So, I guess one important thing I'm trying to say here is that no matter how dark the situation gets, if you have that one partner in crime near you, things are going to be okay; just make sure you don't lose that important person on your quest to find yourself.

// Amigos, familiares, equipos... Todos necesitamos un compañero de crimen para poder superar los obstáculos de la vida. En esa área, creo que siempre he sido un muchacho con suerte, quizá mi vida romántica apesta pero siempre he tenido un buen amigo en quien apoyarme. Soy ese tipo de persona que no es muy buena en grupos grandes, prefiero muchísimo tener momentos uno a uno con las personas y desarrollar esas relaciones en algo verdaderamente valioso. 

Desde que tengo memoria, siempre he tenido uno o dos amigos en quienes me puedo apoyar fuertemente. Durante mis años en el colegio, tuve un mejor amigo en el kinder; un mejor amigo en mis primeros años de primaria (y un grupo diferente para los años finales); lo mismo sucedió en secundaria y; durante la preparatoria y universidad, evolucionó en un grupo pequeño de gente que aprecio hasta hoy. Durante Julio hablé de recuperar tu mojo y creo que una parte crucial del proceso es reconocer que hay alguien allá afuera capaz de tomar tu mano y apoyarte sin importar nada.

Eso es lo que los verdaderos amigos hacen: te toman de la mano cuando estás asustado, brincan contigo cuando recibes buenas noticias y se convierten en un hombro solidario cuando el panorama es gris. Así, creo que la cosa importante que trato de decir aquí es que no importa qué tan sombría se ponga la situación, si tienes a tu compañero de crimen cerca de ti, las cosas van a estar bien; sólo hay que asegurarse de no perder a esa persona en el camino a encontrarte a ti mismo.
