"What would they say to make you feel ok?"
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.
