Friendship

    Friends are a hodgepodge of so many things. They love and support you, share similar interests, are there for you when you need It, hype you up, and also call you out.

    We’ve all had shitty friends throughout our lives. Looking back, I don’t know how I put up with as much as I did. As I get older, I realize just how thankful I am for those I have around me now. I have a solid group of some of the most loving, understanding, reliable people I could ever find. I’ve known most of them for years, one for almost 7 years (shoutout Fynn).

    Friends are not about quantity. I don’t need a lot and I’ve never really had a lot either. Being able to form solid connections with people can be so difficult (shoutout my neurodivergent buddies) but one of the most important skills you can learn is how to be friends with yourself.

    Everyone is so hard on themselves. If anyone said HALF the things I say to myself, I would have legitimately fought them by now. There’s no reason to put up with It, not even from yourself. It can be so difficult, as it’s nearly impossible to control sometimes. It’s not an overnight change, it’s a slow progression into enjoying your own company.

    As all friendships have ups and downs, so does your relationship with yourself. Be gentle. Be forgiving. Most of all, be yourself.

    Oh, hi there!
