One of life's many joys is friendship, and it is the source of so many people's motivation. There is something so incredibly pleasant about being able to have support while also supporting someone else...but what happens when things start to get more demanding?
They say friends will stay with you forever. Never fight over a boy. Love comes and goes. I agree. At least I think I do. My experience has been… different to say the least. If you have friends that go through your whole life with you, then you’re luckier than you might think.
Friendships are like buying shoes. You better make sure that you love them before you make your purchase. I have this problem of always seeing a really great pair of shoes and buying them on impulse. If only I was impulsive with making decisions as I was buying shoes I think I’d be a little bit happier. I don’t just do this with shoes, I do this with other items of clothing. Jackets, button ups, t-shirts you name it. Except for jeans and pants. Jeans and pants are the bane of my existence. Reason is because God blessed me with an ass. I’ve always been between sizes thirty-six and forty and I’m not ashamed of it anymore, I’m just “athletic.”
True Confessions (Part Two)
Friends and relationships, both romantic and platonic are a major part of human interaction and life in general. Making friends and building both forms of relationships are ingrained into our psychology as people, no matter how reclusive, anti-social or even outgoing we are as people. We are drawn to socialising like moths to a bulb, for an infinite number of reasons. Whether that’s differences, similarities, interests or a shared hatred for a common entity. We all have a collective need to connect with one another. But saying that, the types of friendships—I, as an example—have formed as I’ve gradually grown up and certainly when I went to university were drastically different from those I had made in primary and high school.
Welcome, friends, to another rant where I try to give readers advice on things that I've learned the hard way. Don't you fret! This won't be a pity party. I've come to terms with the friendship I lost and I'm a-okay, pal. So, without further introduction, let's hop right in.
True Confessions (Part One)
The Friends theme song goes "I'll be there for you 'cause you're there for me too"; and that's the way it's supposed to be, no? You're supposed to be there for each other? Distance, age, the sheer busyness of life should not be a reason for the end of a relationship let alone a true friendship. Life has had the most ironic ways of showing me that anyone can switch up, no matter the bond or history.
