Hello and happy Friday!!
Since the last blog was for my “non-friends” I’d figure it’s only fair to dedicate blog to all my current friends. How you’ve stuck it out so long I’ll never know.
Friendship is not based on who has there the longest or given you the most stuff. Not who showed out on your birthday and not who was there for your best moments. While all of that is nice and sweet, at the end of the day, it doesn’t really amount to much.
To me it’s about balancing both the lows and the highs. If you throw in the towel after one fight it’s not much of a friendship. It’s not much of anything really. You’re going to fight and sometimes (especially if you’re best friend) they’re going to piss you off to no end.
It’s one thing if you try and try and just can’t reach a common ground anymore. These things happen and they suck, but it’s apart of growing up. However at least try. When two people love and care about each other they’re going to get into arguments. Welcome to life my friends.
A real friend has seen you at your lowest and still love you. Still stays and won’t throw it back in your face later in life (if they do they’re an asshole and you need to drop them). They support you in the good and let you know when you’re messing up. They help you when you can’t help yourself and push you when you’re slacking.
To all of my friends who have stuck it out with me and fought my demons with me: you are truly amazing. I think the world of you and love you to the stars and back. Thank you for all you’ve done, all you do, and all you’ll continue to do.
A friendship is pretty much the same thing as a relationship. Sometimes more important than one. If you’re lucky you get to marry your best friend. The best relationships come from the best friendships.
So, here’s to you. Here’s to your friendships and all the wonderful adventures they may take you on. I hope they’re always strong and last you a lifetime.
