Friends, How many of us have them? Ones we can depend on.....talking bout FRIENDS.......LOL. When it's time to get out there and meet new people and be a social butterfly, I run like a scared chicken. I am not the best at meeting new people and having meaningful conversations with people I just meet. So, when people take interest in me and want to hang out....I always give them the disclaimer...."I am not a good friend....I don't always call back....I don't always text back....and yes my dear I break dates at the last minute. LOL. It's not purposely but my business and children have to come first." Despite the warnings and my lack luster communication skills I have some pretty amazing people stick by my side. There are times when I know my friend Daniell wants to ring my neck because I never sit still and I have to cancel so many girls nights because of mom duties.....but she loves me unconditionally and I truly appreciate her. Keisha is a great example of timeless unconditional love......states away and she always manages to make sure that I get an encouraging word even if it takes me 2 days to text back. Shameka sends me countless recipes and even though I don't try them all she always keeps me in mind when she sees something that I might like. Sherwood and I have such similar personalities that we don't fuss about anything. LOL. I think its the hispanic in our bloods that makes us so relaxed with each other. I may not be there for them in the way that they are there for me but we all serve a different purpose in each others lives. I may not call/text when I am supposed to but my friends know that when they need me I am there. I am the friend that will pick up your kids and keep them for a few days so that you can get a break. I'm the friend that will put a Valentine's Day gift on your porch in the middle of the night so that you feel special. We all do things different and we appreciate each others LOVE LANGUAGE.
You can't force circle personalities into square societies. Allow people to love you like they want to love you. Relationships last so much longer when we accept people for who they are. I'm a free spirit, Brandon is a dictator/business first type A personality. I don't force him to change his personality to accommodate my ego. I allow him to be him because that is what makes our friendship work.
I love my friends. They love me. We will always be.
