Sometimes you just need to be the friend who’s there. You need to be around to hold hands and give hugs and be that shoulder to cry on. It isn’t always fun. It certainly isn’t always easy. But I would rather be exhausted and sick than leave a friend in the cold.
I’ve been so blessed to have friends who are so loyal. So blessed to have friends who are always there for me and who never ever leave me on my own. It has meant the absolute world to me and I want to be a friend like that. I want to be the kind of friend who is around and is available and doesn’t give up. That’s the kind of friend I need and that’s the kind of friend I want to be.
So this is a vow. A promise to be around and to be there for the people I care about. To be the kind of friend I need. To be the kind of friend we all need.
