Day 15 #reallifephotoaday fire pit with friends❤️ Over the course of my life I have had a complicated relationship with friendships-I blame Anne of Green Gables. I was always looking for that bosom friend or perfection. As I’ve grown up and learned about myself and how I am in the world a lot of what I thought friendship was about fell away and has been replaced by acceptance for what I need in friendships and what others need as well: we are different, receive love differently, feel valued in different ways. Some of us need the occasional check in to maintain depth and others like to keep busy with lots of relationships to feel connected. Letting ourselves need what we need, but not demand it from the other feels like love to me.
I hope you can find or realize the depth of love and friendship you desire.
