One of my favorite topics to talk about is friendship because it's obviously one of the best things about being alive. It tends to shock the beejeezus out of you every once in a while. Haha. I love talking about this because I totally understand what its like to lose 80-90% of your friends in one go. This happened 3 years ago and the pain I went through drained the hell out of me, but then life pushed its limits and gave me the inside scoop into love and friendship. The most important ones stayed and then I met a whole new bunch that captivated my heart. It's not like I talk to these people ALL THE TIME, but I know they'll be around when I need them. Let me put it this way, if I died, I know they'll most likely attend my funeral or at least cry their eyes out... Hahaha. If I got married, there's no doubt they're on the guest list and some HAVE to be part of my entourage. Haha. It's funny because CellyWelly and I were talking about Marriage and she already said I'm a bridesmaid at her wedding. She can't take that back. Haha.
Now, there's obviously a handful of these friends that are so good at loving and caring for me. The feeling of 'missing' them is there, but no matter how far we are from each other, the relationship doesn't die. Some of these friends have been around since High School and some I just recently created a relationship with, but it doesn't matter. We've been tested and I have to say, we did a really good job at this whole friendship thing. I've been having these Skype Dates with my best buds and it's like the distance and time were never there. It's story after story and laughing out loud at all the ridiculousness we come up with. Do you know how awesome that is? This only proves one thing to me... I'm so damn lucky which makes all of us so damn lucky. It's hard to find really good friends you can absolutely trust, but the fact that we're able to talk about anything and everything makes it special. Not only that, the good memories outweigh the the bad. We've said and hugged each other goodbye. We've fought like animals. But we made it through.
So, I'm one damn lucky person because I may have lost close friends before, but I gained the kind of love that can never be replaced. A love full of smiles, comfort, trust, love, and chemistry. The most amazing part in all of this is I know these friends are here to stay, even with the distance. A lot of these people aren't physically with me, but that's fine. It doesn't matter. We're able to keep the flame alive and damn, that's deep stuff, you know?
