One friend has been my confidant for all of my breakups since I moved to LA and has convinced me I'm "not crazy," and I owe him a great debt.

Sofie Orstadius, who is a 16-year-old from Minnesota, her sister Peri and her friend Sophie Castle, both 14, showed the internet what true friendship looks like.
