So here recently it was brought to my attention about the quality of friend I am, and it got me thinking. Am I good friend? I have always thought of myself as a good friend, but what do those closest to me think. So me being the crazy person I am, I asked.
So let me give you a little background. I am a very introverted person. I stay to myself, I don't text a lot, and to get me on the phone you have to be persistent. It's just how I have always been. I have also been known to drop off the radar for weeks at a time. When I was younger I wasn't allowed to have many friends and once I took it upon myself to make friends let's just say I didn't make the best choices. So as I got older I had a weird outlook on what a friendship was supposed to look like. I have very few close friends and even they know of the above friendship flaws, and they accept them. My two best friends have been there with me through thick and thin. Noelle and Ashlee have known me since I was in preschool and even though we have gone years without talking, my fault, we were always able to pick right back up where we left off. Now that I am (more) mature I am able to not neglect the relationships that mean the most to me.
Talking to them they assured me that I am a good friend and they always know they can count on me when they need anything. I may not be with them or talk to them 24/7, but I am always there when they need me. I think we all have different friendship styles and we have to find the people that they mesh with. I know there will be people that won't be able to handle the type of person I am and that's ok. I know that both themselves and I will make other friends that will be a better fit for each other.
So lovelies, be the best friend you can be to those you love.
