Yesterday, after taking an unplanned nap that caused me to miss a meeting (oops) You can probably guess how hard it was to fall asleep early that night. So as most 20-somethings I take to my phone and browse the socials. If I’m being honest, Facebook is totally my favorite platform right now. I think It’s because I’m getting older haha. On Facebook there are so many videos shared, be it happy or sad they’re all great. I came across a video of a girl waiting on her best friend at a train station. It was captioned something like “when you haven’t seen your best friend in so long” once the two spotted each other they rushed into each others arms and fell to the ground as they continued to hug and love each other. I shared this video with my best friend who is coming to visit me next week. The excitement that I feel when I have friends visiting is so immense. I’m so proud of my friends and I can’t help but brag about how great they are. Sounds familiar right? Sounds like a relationship.
I got to thinking about my friends and the depth of our friendship. While I’ve been single for years; I’ve never truly felt single. That’s because I’ve always had my girls. What a blessing right? The first year I moved here my friends came to spend my birthday with me in 18 degree weather (they’re all from Texas) so I didn’t have to spend it alone. In college when I lost my dog, my friend Rachel stayed by my side and made sure I ate and moved around because I was deeply depressed. Nearly everyday I can count on my friend Allison to pick up the phone and talk about anything or nothing. I love these girls so much.
As I move forward in life and continue my search for the one, I stop and think, would it be the worst if I never find him? I happy to say I don’t think it would. Though our lives change and the time we spend together grows shorter and shorter I know that I can always depend on my friends. Men come and go and will betray you over and again. Your friends ladies, they’re the ones who will be there for you to wipe away your tears (and plot revenge haha).
In the spirit of November and Thanksgiving, take the time to thank your best friends for all they do and mean to you.
