I have decided to do a hub today which encapsulates my feelings towards my friends, my inspiration for this was actually when I was looking for popular search terms but also we all know it is hard to find a...
Friendships can often pull us through when we are too ashamed to tell our families, we are falling apart
Where would we be, who would we be without the ones who we refer to as our strength, crying shoulders, encouraging motivators and most commonly our friends? As much as we put emphasis on the importance of our families, often our friendships have a much tighter bond. Friends are the people that we meet and then grow with, they are the ones that we can call up when a heart has been broken, or a job has been lost. Some friends will take our side, no matter the fault. The best of friends will tell you when you have been in the wrong and tell you to wake up and smell the coffee; but they will also be the ones who will help you fix what is broken and come up with a spectacular fabricated story to tell everyone who asks what happened.
As much as we love boyfriends, siblings and children; our friendships can often pull us through when we are too ashamed to tell our families, we are falling apart. They are the people that most of us, are the most real around. They are there when we have money and when we are broke. When you are on the edge of having a nervous breakdown and want to scream at the top of your lungs, that you hate the world and everything in your life- and after you are done, they won’t hold it against you or even bring it up in a week or two, when you are feeling like you are on the top of the world.
Although we each need our friendships, we often let them fade when we evolve through our lives. When we fall in love again, we neglect our supporters and focus on the unfamiliar. When the unfamiliar never comes into focus, we are then welcomed back to the ones who have always been there to love us. These are our love stories- our soul mates and when we change, for some reason, we are always good enough for who we are when we are the person we become.
It is taught by society to tell our Parents, Children, Husbands and Wives that we love them and we appreciate them for all that they do for us. Parents celebrate their children’s birthdays, Husbands and Wives celebrate their anniversaries, and children go home for a visit on Mothers Day and Fathers Day. Each relationship has its own way and day of celebration. The uniqueness of a friend is that Friends celebrate with you when you get a promotion, when you get fired, when you get engaged, when you get divorced, when you find out your pregnant, when you find out your daughter is pregnant- and they are there by our sides and in our hearts when we face all the obstacles that can be put before us during our journey through life.
Without our friends, we would not be who we are today. Without our friendships we would never be whole. If we are lucky enough to have a friend that shares our best interest, hold on tight, and fight for them, the way that they fight for you-when you cant fight for yourself. True friends are often, a once in a life time gift, that we can’t afford to pass up. Make sure you appreciate your relationships, all of them-for how special they are to who you are and to your life’s story.
