I’m back where I grew up.
I’ve been hanging out with friends so far. I get to see my mom tomorrow. I’ll be spending the next four days with her. We’re going to have such a nice time.
I’m struggling with my friends.
I have a few individuals with whom I’m very very close one on one. We’re great. I’m so happy when I see them.
I have other friends, however, with whom things are a little tense.
I know that’s just a part of growing up. You lose friends. You grow apart from people. You grow into liking opposing things and disagreements form.
Today, I had a heartfelt conversation with one friend on how easy it seems for some people to give up on someone or throw them away. Last year, so many people seemed to give up on me or throw me away.
I nearly started to cry when I said adamantly that I would never throw any of my friends away.
I’ve learned that to my detriment, I’ll stay. Last year I practically let myself die so I wouldn’t give up on someone. Love and friendship will always be worth it for me.
I’m still recovering from last year.
I’m mostly doing great.
I know I did it all for love and friendship.
It was all worth it.
