I am so grateful for my family of choice! They are so awesome-they made my birthday the best one ever! I am so blessed. This includes my wonderful & loving sister-Aija & my absolutely fabulous aunt-Marianne.
Being friends with anyone takes time, attention, commitment & unconditional love. You encourage, listen, support, cheer & celebrate!
This all takes time & effort on our part....and sadly some people do not become our true friends or some are in our lives for a short time.
It really comes down to expectations, real ones-I give a little & if it is returned, I give some more and some people are just meant to say hello to, while the very few & special ones blossom into a real & genuine closeness. And for me, that person becomes part of my family.
It will be challenging to reach out, especially when you have been hurt in the past. Yet, there are people out there who want & need a friend like you.
I encourage you to be a friend to yourself-You Are Worth It!
