Hello everybody, I have been learning a few life lessons recently so you might see a bit of a pattern going on in these posts. It has been a challenging season in my life at the moment but I am learning valuable lessons from this season so it has been worth it. One valuable lesson I have learned is finding the people who will stick by me and for myself personally who are the people that will help me to grow closer to God as that’s important to me.
As I mentioned above, I have been learning many life lessons recently and I hadn’t really opened up about it to anyone until sometime last week when I had a weekly catch up with one of my good friends. The conversations we had were pretty much the same as every week and I was just happy listening and giving advice when needed until I absolutely broke down in tears revealing to my friend what I had been going through. My friend was so wonderful, she listened to me and gave me advice and didn’t judge me no matter what. She also said “I can help you for five seconds, you need to give it to God”, so I did and it really helped. The incredible thing about this conversation was that my wonderful friend knew exactly what I needed which was her to listen and not judge me, it felt so freeing being able to open up to her. I open up to my Husband but this was a female problem and she understood exactly what i was going through.
I can not stress enough of how important it is to have the right people in your circle, I have had many friends come and go throughout my life and they have brought great life lessons with them. Many I have had to let go but it has been for the better as I now know my worth and how I deserve to be treated and you should too. Friendship is give and take not just take take and take so think about that, who in your life is just taking or maybe you’re the friend that’s just taking, do something about it. Are there any people in your life that are toxic and are perhaps worth talking to about it, try talking to the person before you go and cut them out, they may be willing to change and if you are the friend then be willing to change. I’m no expert on this topic at all, in my experience I have talked to the people in my past and we just kept clashing so it didn’t work but everybody is different and it may just work for you and the friends that you’re struggling with. Just remember that we are all human and we will make mistakes, we’re all on this crazy journey of life together and we’re all trying to do our best.
Thank you so much for reading, I hope you got something from it, if you feel like sharing, comment below some friendship experiences you have had, I’d love to know. I hope you have a fantastic rest of your work and enjoy your weekend! xx
