Friends


I'm not sure where I would be without my friends. This has been a rough year. Failing heath, finical problems, and family stressors. Most of my life I've been a "loner". I was too afaird to open myself up to friendships. I was afaird of being hurt or used. The last couple of years I have developed some deep friendships. I don't know what I would have done without their support over the past few months. My entire life has changed and I am so thankful for the support of my friends. Making friends was hard for me. My past had taught me not to trust anyone. I built a protective wall around myself and nobody was allowed close to me. I now so enjoy being with my friends. We help and comfort each other in times of need. We laugh and play together. We cry and hug each other when "things" aren't going well. We talk on the phone until the batteries go dead. We enjoy life together. Nothing can compare to friendship.

Thank you friend.

Thats really awesome Wanda. I'm so glad you were able to let down your walls and allow others in. That in my opinion, is one of the fastest ways one can personally grow in life. Keep that heart open :-)

Friendship and emotional connection are so necessary. Like air, we need it to breath!

It's a strange thing, but most of the people I can open up to are not people I have ever met in person. Maybe that provides some safety.
