    One of my friends is having trouble.

    He's not all that close of a friend but it kind of hit me hard. I'm not sure of all of the details but he's back in the mental hospital again and I'm pretty sure he tried to kill himself. He's one of the smartest, sweetest guys I've ever met but he has problems. He's on academic...

    There is a special someone on here

    who took only a few messages to figure out they are a awesome friend. One who doesn't judge and always has strong advice and sound judgement!

    The hardest part is not about saying goodbye

    and watch someone walk out of your life. It's about knowing what was special will never be the same again. I should have cherished those days because I know it will all come to an end and even though it's only for a short span of time it made my days much better. Back to where...

    There is the friend that can read you like a

    book... These are rare... A person that could break down all of your walls and see into your soul. Precious they are, and oh so rare. The beautiful thing about you is you're there without needing to be. Early words that set a path that could have been destruction to a path of...

    When you realize your worth,

    the crap people who drag & beat you up (they are miserable with themselves- it's not your fault) you know/knew can be dropped in a heart beat. Life is so much better being free of toxic beings. :) Choose to live.

    Friends are easy to find.

    but keeping a friendship is really hard unless you find the right people.

    "This is not about you

    Yesterday an EP friend unexpectedly blocked me.

    It caught me totally off guard. It hadn't been a long friendship, but I thought it was a true one. I guess online friendships are too easy to form and too easy to break.

    I don't have very many friends.

    I have been used and screwed over so many times by friends; therefore now I am very careful who I choose as a friend. I would rather have one good friend who I could talk to or hang out with who is true and honest with me. I don't like to be used or abused.

    Relationships are like a mirror: what reflects

    back is how you treat the other person. Personally, I would say grow up, forgive (even if you cannot forget). That is the mark of a true friendship

    Wonderful words by Henri Nouwen: When we

    honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in...

    You have to truly love the other person to have

    a true friendship. I have a best friend who I can say I have a true friendship with. Our friendship is so strong that I realized she was my little sister. No matter what happens, I will always be true to her even in the darkest hours.

    Today is one of the hardest days of my life.

    My kids and I are moving out of the house we have shared with their dad for 4 years. More than that, we are moving from being a family of 22 years to being co-parents with shared custody of children we both adore. For a person who values family above all else, this is a...

    why do I have to be the one to put in most or all of the effort to a friendship? Sorry, that's not how it works. Eventually I am going to get tired of being the only one trying. Eventually, i'm gonna stop talking to everyone who doesn't put in equal efforts. you know whats funny...
