FOR YEARS I HAD BEEN PONDERING THE “TRUE” MEANING OF “FRIENDSHIP”, AND THEN, SUDDENLY I UNDERSTOOD! I finally got it! THROUGHOUT MY MANY YEARS, ALL everyone AROUND ME IS CONCERNED ABOUT HAS BEEN THEIR SOCIAL STATUS. AKA/( to be cool, or not to be) that is the question.
. I was a floater, still am. I would have some friends in every group, because I had shared interests with a lot of different types of people, in alot of different groups, but there has only ever been one person, that I felt I could completely trust, come into my life at a time. I am okay with this now.- No matter how far apart we were we always kept in touch. That is, until 12 years ago. It was late one night when my very best friend/first love Scott,
was in an accident and was killed. I took the news very hard, but I kept it all inside for a long time. It is only as I think of him now that I have my revelation…IF YOU CAN RAISE ONE FINGER ON YOUR HAND- JUST ONE, FOR THAT ONE TRUE FRIEND, YOU ARE DOING ALRIGHT!!! Why has society made us feel that we all have to have tons & tons of friends in order to succeed at life? I know that I would rather be able to raise one finger in confidence, than 10 with doubts filling my mind………..
SO TO ALL THE FOLKS OUT THERE WHO ARE SAD, LONELY, OR DOWN ON THEMSELVES- REMEMBER—————————————–
IF YOU CAN RAISE ONE FINGER, YOUR DOING ALLRIGHT!!!
