What I Learned From Losing All My Friends

Ok, I have a confession…

Once upon a time…I was a bitch.

Yea, I know…how could someone so cute be a bitch?

I have no idea…

But I was…

I had a great family, great friends, great support system, great boyfriend…

And I messed it all up.

Well not the family part…they seem to have this whole unconditional love thing really down packed.

But the rest sort of just fell apart…within weeks.

Now nothings really the same…

No more game nights and dance offs…

No more middle of the day check in videos sent to my phone…

It’s all gone…

And the truth is, I missed it all…

I missed the laughs…

The intense conversations…

The hugs…

The experiences…

The love…

I missed it all because I was so consumed by the little shit.

Insecurities…

Worry…

Jealousy…

I internalized all of that, and it clouded my mind.

I had all these amazing moments I was apart of, and dynamic people around me, and all I did was complain…

I didn’t appreciate not one thing.

I took it all for granted.

And now it’s all gone…

 

So what did I learn?

  • Acknowledge and handle the pain within yourself, before inviting others in.
  • When you catch yourself about to complain or judge, stop and ask yourself what’s wrong with you. Often times our judgments towards others are just us projecting our faults on to someone else.
  • Don’t focus on what a person isn’t, focus on what they are.
  • Stop expecting for things to go wrong. Stop expecting for someone to lie to you. Stop expecting someone to betray you. Stop expecting someone to talk behind your back. Stop expecting the worse. Because what you expect is what you will get.
  • Appreciate every moment (good or bad), every person, and every single thing life throws at you. We are the creators of our own reality, and the first step is creation is appreciation. Be grateful.
