Bestie appreciation post 💚🐾
(swipe for proof that I'm not always photogenic 😝😉)
This amazing, genuine, loving and REAL lady right here,
has made her way into my heart and I couldn't be more thankful.
This is after a couple of years of self isolation after my last "best friend" decided to quite literally, suddenly drop me when I started going through a hard time, despite all I had stuck around for with her own drug and mental health issues.
It's devastating when someone latches onto you, makes themselves a big part of your life, then doesn't have the decency to stick around when they aren't able to lean on you, for once.
When someone you treated like actual family, shows you that you don't mean the same to them, that you don't deserve the same love and effort you put out. To add on to that, she also befriended the one person causing so much upheaval in my life at the time, immediately after declaring that she couldn't be my friend because I was "being too negative" and sad.. It takes a while to recover from that kind of blunt betrayal and uncalled for abandonment in your time of need, and to be able to trust again.
BUT, after all the time needed to heal from that deep wound,
this little ball of sassy sunshine just straight walked into my life and I haven't looked back since! ☉
Mainly because she's reminded me to be more open, loving and forgiving, and to enjoy life fully rather than staying stuck in the past. It only repeats if you don't learn from patterns, and if you expect it to repeat.
I also now know not to ignore my intuition with friendships anymore and the value of boundary setting!!
I've actually made up with/am on better terms with several people from my past since meeting her as well, which is a really great feeling.
We are both growing and evolving rapidly and it's very clear that our journeys are wandering along very similar paths. 🐾💚 She's helped me believe in true, selfless friendship again and actual good humans with big hearts, and connection without expectation.
How fucking beautiful!!
