I wasn’t always a good friend. I’ve had selfish thoughts in hopes of favoritism shown on my behalf. Going out of my way to present my brand of being something I could barely recognize. My social cirlcle changed quickly as the weather, my wordplay landing me in impossible scenarios I’d never dreamed of fulfilling, leaving me all alone as a result to careless planning. Repeating occurrences never promoted the kind of happiness I’d imagine so the decision in “trying something different” soon became my new life project. It never dawned on me till I pondered on this…. “not only have I fallen in love, I’ve fallen in love with my best friend.” Learning to love is first learning to become a friend.
That’s what I aspire to become.
