sometimes there must be a destroying and rebuilding.
longevity has its place, but not friendship.
there should be five people you can call at 5am & they’ll answer because they know it’ll be: extremely funny, extremely sad, a call from the county jail, or you need a designated driver.
those same five people should be the folks who, if they were to betray you, would cause you to question everything.
“always put up 50%” i was told on an interview. how true it is. every relationship should be fifty/fifty.
when the other side drops – you remain.
i’ve always remained at 50% with true friends.
i show up.
i lost a best friend in 2010 & seem to be losing friends weekly.
but i’m still at 50%.
parachutes and friends: if they aren’t there the first time, you may never need them again.
