Telling the truth

"What would they say to make you feel ok?"
-One EskimO

I have a lot of friends. Well, I have a ton of acquaintances. I bet some of them think they're my friends. Maybe they are. I do have a lot of friends. For some reason, people like me. A lot. Weird. I have a nice amount of good friends. Like, really good friends. Not all of my friends are good friends. Some are just friends. And that's okay. Some of my good friends are amazing friends. Friends with whom I'll share secrets, to whom I'll show my true colors. Those are some of the best friends a girl could have. I feel really blessed to have some really good friends.

My friendships have evolved over the years. Some friendships have grown apart. Some have gotten stronger. Some have remained intact despite major changes in lifestyle. I've said before that some friends kind of dropped me when my life started to be 'special needs-centric'. It's true. Some did. But, I'm getting more and more honest with myself and recognizing that I've done a lot of dropping, too. I'm not sure I've been as abandoned as I thought. I think I've let go of some friendships that just weren't serving me. It really is a healthy thing to do, but I don't think I've been quite so honest with myself about it.

Telling the truth. That's all.

I am a big believer of dropping friendships- Life it short and giving time to the things that are most important, well it takes time.
Being able to have a perpetual sleep over with your best friends helps too!
Love you.

amen. i have a few good friends that i have kept close for years and some that after years of friendship, i've terminated the relationship. others come in and out of my life. some passing thru, some grabbing a coffee and staying awhile.

and i understand why people like you. despite being so skinny ;), you seem to be a nice chick.
