The past few weeks have been so difficult. Agonizing even. But my beautiful friends have been my anchor and a safe place to fall. I always want to help my friends, I love them so very much, be there for them in any way I can-- but I don't rely well on others myself. Something about my personality makes it physically and emotionally hard to ever actually lean on anyone. Thank goodness I learned my way around it. I'd have missed out on the incredible healing that comes in a true friends understanding.
I don't have loads of friends, there are just a few-- but those few are closer to me than family in many ways, and I am enormously thankful.
