February has taught me that I’m a good person. February has also taught me, that my friends are The Best. When I say “friends”, I mean FRIENDS.
Because being acquainted with lots of people through school, growing up in the same area, work, university, friends of friends etc. Doesn’t constitute frienddinship.
That’s why I say, I know a lot of people; but I do not have a lot of friends. Now the fiends I do have are 100, A1. We don’t always agree, we don’t see each other often but we are always rooting for and supporting one another.
I went through a phase where I thought that my couldn’t or wouldn’t help me, in one particular situation. Turns out I underestimated those friends, and our friendship, because they 100% have my back.
A d*ckhead once sent me a message sayingg, “You can’t keep single friends and expect to hold down a relationship, they single for a reason” and I couldn’t help but laugh. This was in response to a quote I posted which read, “Grateful for like-minded individuals, especially those I’m blessed to call my friends”.
I didn’t say my friends were single, in a relationship or even mention who these friends were. I simply posted a quote that resonated with me and made think about how valuable my friendships are. When someone thinks you don’t want to be with them because of your friends, as opposed to their own actions, there’s 100000% a problem. If my friends knew the intricate details of my relationship woes, it would be ON SIGHT.
This is how I know my people are world class because people are threatened by the value and strength of our friendship, and the knowledge that my support system is solid. Family included.
February was definitely about Friendship this year.
2020 is about Friendship and Family
(And eradicating the spirit of the D*ckhead)
