So no one told you life was gonna be this way…
When the rain starts to pour….
I was talking with a friend the other day and I said about friendship, and how you learn when the shit hits the pan, (sorry mum and dad-lol) who your real friends are.
I am lucky that I have friends so close to me I can’t remember life without them. They are always there, as I am for them and always will be. Tea, coffee, food, gin, wine-I see a pattern here…haha nights out, afternoon teas, meals theatre, fun.
I have made new friends since J started school, who also saw me at my worst on school runs and always offered and do offer support, a chat, coffee, play dates, a listening ear.
My work mates who just “get me” who accept me for me my pink hair, loud laugh, converse, quirks and all. My work mates are great, very supportive and very funny.
I thought I had a group of friends at one time but I realised that if I wasn’t around, I was soon forgotton. I don’t mean seeing them but a comment on facebook, a message doesn’t take long does it?!
Perhaps they had me boxed off as the one who was ill so that was that ans the click was clicked tightly, me being un clicked.
Then…there is facebook and facebook groups…
I am very fortunate dear readers, to have met and spoken to some loveoy people, through clothes groups and also NMO facebook groups. Support online through such sources can be great.
So in life, things happen, people change, things change.
People come and go in life, and those you haven’t seen for some time and thet say “how are you?!” I reply “yeah good thanks, you?”
I wrote a blog post on this a while ago, but real friends understand when we are not at our best, and others will get the “fine” response.
So…….be yourself…let those go who are no longer there for you…don’t force it…be you…and……
