I don’t know about you but I don’t know what I would do without my bestie. Whenever Sam is sick on a school day (or having a mental health day… oh admit it you had them to) I feel lost and as though someone wrenched my brain out through my nose (sorry but I wanted to be detailed).
To some, friendship is under-rated. Just a shoulder to cry on, or someone to use. They hide things from you, they gossip with you and they gossip about you. I’m sure we have all had that friend. You feel used and get sick of them quickly. You may also find that it makes you crabby and generally unpleasant. These friends are not bringing out the best in you.
If you find yourself in this sort of situation or relationship and you know it, maybe it is time to move on. This is always hard. How do you end a friendship? I am sorry but I do not have an answer for that, and in the past, I wish I did. But when you do, and when you form new friendships, that are hopefully stronger and healther, trust me, you wont regret it.
But what are friends really for? Are they just a like minded girl (or guy) that you can hang out with? Well, they are! But they are so much more. They are people with whom you can trust to pull you up when you do something wrong, or someone you can trust to keep your secrets, someone to support you in the hard times and someone to be with in the good times.
If you want a great book about friendships read “How to be a best friend forever” by Dr. John Townsend. You can read this book in a night (okay maybe in a weekend to be generous) and you will love it.
This book is all about how to make sure that you are in a healthy relationship and what you can do to make it better. It even touches on Social Media and friendships, telling the truth and being honest with your BFF.
You can read more about “How to be a best friend forever” on the Girls of Grace Blog.
So, lets appreciate our besties, and not only them! All friends! Thankyou
