International Friendship Day: July 31st 2015!

When I was younger I went through all of the obligatory comings and goings of friendships. I learned that girls can be spiteful & horribly mean, and that boys were a little weird, but much easier to get along with. Or that’s how I saw it.

Sure, I made some epic friends when I was younger. Some I still know but those friendships have grown apart, but if we see each other in passing we’d have a quick catch up in the street and others I no longer see due to them moving away, or vice versa. After those teenage years I sort of went all hermit-ish. Through the friendship fails and broken hearts when good friends moved on to greener pastures and sadly even some of them passing away…yeah, I went went a little anti-social and shut myself away from the friendship circles of the world. I even found it hard to connect with people. To talk to them even and to trust them. I felt awkward conversing with people I didn’t know and the list goes on.

But fast forward into my 30’s and I can honestly say I never thought in a million years that I’d be able to one day say, that I have some of the best friends a girl could ever, ever ask for. Also, they’re girls! A total shocker even for me!

These girls have helped me, be me. If that makes sense. They’ve, some how, dragged out the Debbie underneath all of the Mummy-ness that I’ve built up over the years and I could not be more thankful to them for that.

I never thought I’d have ‘girly’ friends to ever do that sort of thing with, and even though it still feels a little strange, it also feels pretty damn perfect too.

Truly.

I feel very lucky to be at this stage in my life with two girls by my side that I can depend on 110%, and how did I meet them? Through blogging! What a crazy, CRAZY world we live in. If I’d never started blogging, we would never had met. So for this one, for these two…I have to thank fate for a lot of it. We’re even planning a girly weekend {me, doing a girly weekend!? HA!}

I cannot wait! So yeah…friendship means a hell of a lot to me. No matter when we talk or catch up, we literally just pick up were we left off. We know that each of us is always there for the other when they’re needed. Knowing that you have that sort of support system is new ground for me, but I’ll tell you now…it’s a wonderful feeling to have friends like these two!

Do you have ‘besties’? How’d you meet and how long have you been friends?

    It’s nice to have a few really close, genuine friends than to be surrounded by people who don’t really know you. I have two close friends that I can chat with even though we don’t live close to each other. Happy Friendship Day!

      It really truly is Michelle. I’ve always said having a few close ones seriously outweighs the other. Happy Friendship day to you too!

    This is the first post I’ve read this morning, now I have a big smile on my face 🙂 I love that through blogging you can ‘meet’ people from all cultures, ages, backgrounds etc. I’m so pleased you’ve made friends with girls. I couldn’t be without my 3 best friends and I’m slowly building a genuine friendship through blogging. Girls need girls – especially once we’ve settled down and have families!!! Great post.
