About Friendship

Sometimes we shut the door on people who are trying their best to understand us. We lose them because we’re afraid to lose control. We’re afraid to break our own barriers and let them into the life we perfectly planned. We’re scared to admit that we lost control of who comes in through that door. We’re scared to admit that they’ve made us think of life from another perspective.

However, life can be chaotic in the most beautiful ways. It often has these small coincidences which spark unexpected friendships and they can last a lifetime. Some people come into our lives to teach us that life often flips from being terrifying to magical. We need to muster the strength to believe in these moments.


There’s always another side to the story we try to convince ourselves. Not everyone out there is trying to hurt or use us. Some people come into our lives so they can bring out the best in us and by default we bring out the best in them.

    1. I wanted to bring this perspective to light, because I know we get hurt a lot from the people we trust…I’ve been there many times.
      It’s easy to stop searching for real friends.
      But the past few months have really proved there are wonderful people out there who would accept you in the most vulnerable momentsπŸ™Œ
      Can’t thank them enough for being there.
      I hope I can pass their kindness forward and be that friend for someone who needs it.

      1. Bless you so much. You are a true and genuine friend. I can tell. I love your answer and I wish there we’re more people like you in the planet of ours who cared about people like us who are vulnerable and when we need a friend to talk to. πŸ™‚

      2. Bless you too xoxo. I’m always here to listen πŸ˜€
        I’ve been trying to wrap my mind around it…It’s still hard to define friendships, isn’t it?
        I mean sometimes one side needs more support than the other and then at some point it’s vice versa.

        I’m sure there are genuine people out there. Maybe some stopped trying because they got hurt. It happened to me last summer and I thought I’d never get over it.

        I think we lose more if we keep treating every single person who comes into our lives as if they’re going to hurt us. So we just need a little faith in order to see things from a different perspective. xoxox

      3. Friendships are about 50/50. The balance. However, depending on the person the scale tips over and its a mere one sided as oppose to balance.

        I know exactly what you mean. In my own experience. I have been nervous and scared to meet a friends. I can be someone’s acquaintance. But that’s it. I want a friend who I can count on and we can both be there for each other. Someone to talk too about anything in life, books, movies, etc. I live in L.A. and the people here are different and very full of themselves, narcissistic.
