When you have rough patches in your life and when things seem to be going in a downward spiral there are certain people in your life that seem to make things magically better. They appear in your life at the right time and they listen to you without judgement. People like that are rare and seem hard to find.. And yet they do exist.
I am going through my own personal storm at this moment in my life and while I’m doing my best to surf these stormy waves I can count on the love and the true friendship of the people that I have chosen to be my family. Because unfortunately we don’t always get the support from our real family. When we are born we get them whether we like it or not. They get to see our experiences from nearby and they are not always understanding, nice or supportive with everything we go through. It’s sometimes painful to listen to them trying to tell us what it is we’re supposed be doing or how wrong it is to handle our problems that way. Sometimes their advice makes you feel even worse than you did when you tried handling it on your own. It’s not because you are related by blood that you can expect they will be helping and understanding you. In fact it is usually quite the opposite.
This is where your real, true and honest friends come in. The universe is so big and it’s so loving that it will provide you with the support that you need in many shapes and forms. It will send you people that have a deep understanding in your feelings and in you who you really are. They can lift you up by just listening to you without saying their opinion or giving their advice. You can feel their sincere interest in what you have to say.
I don’t have many friends: a few of them are near me, but there are quite a few of them scattered all over the world. Each and one of them I consider to be angels in human form. They are there with me when I need an umbrella when the storm gets harder. They pull me out of the water when I fall of a wave and hand me a towel to dry myself off.
I am writing this for all my friends that have become my family. I am writing this for YOU. You are that special friend to someone who thinks you are important in their life. YOU are that angel that can improve someone’s life just by being there. THANK YOU for being you! ❤
