I am a good friend.
I say this because I have been told numerous times over the last few years that I’m not. I was even told by a girl that used to be my very best friend (from the time I was 13 till the time I was 25) that I should take a look at all the friends I’ve lost and realize there is something wrong with me. THAT hurt more than I can say. I began to think she must be right, that there must be something about me that causes me to be a terrible friend.
Until recently. Recently I began to realize that maybe my old friends just didn’t change in the same way I did. Maybe they stopped appreciating me. Maybe we had misunderstandings that lead to our friendships ending. And that was BOTH of our faults, not just mine.
Because lately I’ve been told on a few occasion what a good friend I am. By people who don’t even live anywhere near me, some that I’ve never even met in person. I’ve been told that the advice I give is wonderful, that I’m good at lending an ear when needed, that these people enjoy talking with me and reading my words. I’ve been told I am a good friend.
And you know, deep down I know that. I’m ridiculously loyal to my friends, I fight for them. I love nothing more than sending little surprises when I know someone’s feeling sad. And even though I’ve admitted I’m not the best at talking on the phone I AM a fantastic email and letter writing and I have no problem spending all day in a coffee shop or shopping and talking.
Despite what my old friends may have decided about me, I am a good friend. And it’s their loss.
