I had the pleasure of a visit from an old friend yesterday. We’ve known each other since we were 7 years old, so she’s known me since before I knew me. She’s seen me at my worst, my best and everything in between. She knows who I am, my intentions, my heart. We even went to the same high school together so she saw me through one of the toughest times in my life.
I don’t need to explain anything to her. There’s no explanation necessary. She knows me. I don’t need to defend myself. There’s no explanation necessary. I was so grateful for our time together. I didn’t know how desperately I needed that visit until last night after it was all said and done and I began to cry. Her visit reminded me what true love feels like. I didn’t realize how long it really had been since I’ve felt like I could just be me until she was gone. I didn’t realize how exhausted I’ve become from explaining or defending myself to people that don’t know ME until I felt her presence yesterday.
I’m sure you have someone in your life like that?!?! Maybe you’re lucky enough to have a few friends like that?!?! Thank you to them. Maybe you should give them a call today and tell them how much they mean to you.
Thank you to my lifetime friend for reminding me what “friends don’t need an explanation and your enemies won’t believe you anyways” actually feels like. THANK YOU!
