friends

I wanted to write a post about the friends I am thankful for. They stood by me when everyone else seemed to want to leave.

As is the case for most of us, I’ve been comforted, laughed with, cried with, and built up by my friends.

Friends aren’t like family in that they aren’t really required to be there for you, especially when something in your life goes a mess.

They stand by you even if maybe it’s not a good look for them to be your friend. Your name and their’s in the same sentence isn’t a problem.

I’ve had the friend who had many friends at the time when I only had her.

I’ve had new friends come into my life and prove me wrong about the understanding and compassion people are capable of showing me.

I have the lifelong friend since elementary school that I still keep contact with and we don’t even know how. (Seriously what happened in 3rd grade that was able to house anything substantial at all?!!) Also, I am very confident I would still think everything we thought was funny back then would be hilarious now.

I have the college friends who still associate with me and want to see me even though my most difficult seasons in life were while knowing them in close quarters.

I have friends who encourage me. Push me. Believe in me. Want what’s best for me. Don’t care what anyone says about me or them.

They are heroes to me in their mission to be a good friend. The real MVPS.

So this is for my friends, whether I met you this year or I’ve known you forever, thanks for not leaving me in the dust by myself and hightailing it out of proximity (lol) and for valuing our friendship. I promise I do, too.

  1. Laura! I stumbled upon your blog at random through someone I was following on instagram. Just wanted you to know I am encouraged by your blog and look forward to every new one you write. I suffer from depression and it’s a breath of fresh air to have someone portray what it is so well in words. I have passed some of your posts onto love ones to read and friends and family are able to understand my disease more because of your wisdom with words. Thank you.

    1. Kara, thank you so very much for the encouragement!! That all makes me really happy to hear my posts could impact you so positively. Depression is definitely a beast, but I’m so glad to hear you’re tackling it alongside friends and family and moving forward! Wishing you the best–XO, Laura 🙂
