don’t feel bad or left out if you don’t have a giant friend group. [this might be more for the youngin’s in grade school, but I like to think always applicable to all].
I never had a huge friend group in grade school, or college. My life thus far consisted of having one best friend that I did everything with. At one point it seemed like I had kinda-best friends. idk what that even means.
I don’t have a group chat that’s constantly blowing up. I don’t have a group of friends I’ve shared all my grade school classes with.
I have one best friend whom I declared a best friend within a week of hanging out. I have multiple who have helped me grow in my faith,adventure life with me, struggled in comp sci classes with me, staying up all hours of the night. there’s many who’ve helped me in life & gave me courage to make life changes. I have best friends in different states &when we talk it’s like we time nor distance are a factor. I have friends I’ve known since we were lil kids.
I feel cheesy calling so many my best friend, but they really are.
Uh I think my point here is, I know it can feel off, or sad..or something..., while
growing up - or even in (young)adulthood life, seeing those groups of friends that have been friends forever &do everything together..at least, I would feel like that.
life takes care of you &puts the people you need in your life when you need them. Even if it seems like you’re extremely low on friends right now. Don’t worry, your friends-family is out there waiting to meet you. It might take some time.
The love I’ve gained from my friends combined with the unconditional love from my family, helps keep me alive.
To my lovely friends, DEF not all pictured here, reading this: Words will never express my appreciation for you. I’m blessed to add you to my life’s family.
Ok. I’m having fun with my actual fam-fam right now. I just had to say, it’s okay. The number of friends you have doesn’t change the quality. Quality over quantity. Even if it’s just one REALLY good friend. The others will find you.
Be kind to one another. 🌵
