It is so easy for people to love you at your best, but what happens when they see you at your worst? This is bound to happen eventually, even if it takes years, and if it does take years, then what? One can only hope that you get the support needed, but you never know – this is when true colours are shown.
A year ago I said goodbye to one of my best friends. She described me as “the brother she never knew she always wanted”, I described her as “the best friend I always wanted”.
People often talk about soulmates, but what about “soulfriends”?
While I mentioned in a previous post that I don’t believe in that single soulmate, I do believe in the principle of a soulmate, so the thought of a soulfriend is equally intriguing and also heart warming at the same time. One of the quotes above suggests that this person could be a friend, sibling or even a parent or child.
I have been thinking a lot about how I have gotten to where I am right now – “Lost but with direction, a path forward but uncertain of the journey yet to come”.
Many obstacles have been put in my path, but because of them I am in a position or have an opportunity to reach for one of my dreams. This is not the silver lining I refer to above. The silver lining came in the form of a new friend.
