I found out on Friday night a friend had passed away just before the summer. I was so afraid to hear more in case it confirmed my fears. It was sadly confirmed and I have had loads of wobbly moments since.
What if I could have made a difference had I not put in so much distance? Questions like that haunted me.
But now, I’m ok because best friends always say, “It’s ok, to be sad. It’s ok, to have these wobbly moments. It’s ok, to ask questions. It’s ok, to be honest. It’s ok, to say no. It’s ok, I’m always here for you.”
Don’t bottle things up and just talk. That’s always been my downfall in case I affected the other person’s mood or feelings.
A best friend doesn’t and wouldn’t mind, simply because we matter to them.
