Been thinking tonight. I had a small squabble with a wonderful friend, but we sorted it out, and all is good. And see, that's the thing. When you have a disagreement, you figure it out. It doesn't matter who did what, or what it even happened. The answer is communication.
Now, I'm not always the best at communication. When I get upset, I clam up. When things aren't going well, I clam up. I guess I don't like to share the icky. I feel that people don't want to hear it. But the thing is, real friends, and family, want to hear from you, good stuff or icky stuff. And this is something that is hard for me. But, I'm learning.
I am blessed with an amazing family, and I am blessed with great friends. You know who you are. And I love you all. Unfortunately, I thought some people were good friends, but they weren't. And I think it's those burns that have made me keep the icky close to my chest. And you know? You know who you are in this instance (person from Downers Grove who stalks my blog), among others.
Thank you to my wonderful family and friends. And, to the friends that I haven't seen, face to face, in a little while or in a long while, but who I know I could pick up with like no time has passed, well, you're aces in my book.
