Today I’m thankful for true friends. Everyone is not really your friend. This was an exceptional hard lesson for me to learn because I’m weird and I’m awkward and I just really want people who get me. I want to be understood. And so I’ve put energy into friendships that just weren’t worth it. I’ve wasted time with people who wouldn’t spit on me to put me out if I were on fire. And it hurt like hell. But I’m better for it because I truly appreciate the friends I have now. I’m more able to appreciate kind words and gestures and I’m in a better position to give. I’m a better friend for the true friends I have.
