Sometimes, you meet people that you regret ever talking to. Sometimes you meet people that just won’t leave the back of your mind and you wonder what it would have been like to be friends with them. And the odd time, you meet someone who you become friends with, spend years with through the good times and the bad, and they change you forever. I have been lucky enough to have experienced friendships like this throughout my life and have grown into a greater, more motivated person because of the positive and amazing people I surround myself with.
My friends are generous, kind, motivating, inspiring, trusting, perceptive, understanding, loving and sympathetic. They can tell the moment I walk into the room that something is wrong, and instead of asking what it is, they just hug me. A hug can sometimes work wonders that even the greatest and wisest words could not fix.
The people you allow into your life can either build you up or tear you down. They can support you and encourage your success, or they can become the cause of your failure. Allowing those close to you to see you for who you really are is hard, and is something that I have had a hard time allowing to happen recently. The people that know me for who I am are very impartial to any mistakes I have made in my life and have come to be my support group, my best friends, my family of sorts. Letting these people see my flaws, my weaknesses and my imperfections was hard, but the relationships that I have gotten out of it was worth the risk. As someone wise once said, if it’s worth the fall then take the risk. Even though the downfall to having friendships so close was a huge risk, the outcome of having these friends there for me through the good and the bad was totally worth it.
I trust my friends with my life and talking to them about the bad things, can make them seem less colossal. I want to thank every person in my life that has helped me through a rough patch, and let them know how much I appreciate them. Friends are not always forever, but the one’s that are worth it will stick around, even when they realize how childish, ridiculous and complicated you turn out to be. The friends that suck it up and deal with it are great, but the one’s that go along with your crazy antics are the true friends that you can never forget about.
So all in all, make sure the people that surround you in life are the best of the best because if they don’t actually love you, they aren’t worth your time. I love my friends, they might as well be my second family because sometimes I love them more than my biological family. They will always be there for you and that’s all that counts.
Trust your friends,
love your friends,
motivate your friends,
believe in your friends,
and remember your friends.
Never let the good one’s go, you will regret it forever. <3
So… I am new on tumblr and am still trying to figure out how to use everything. I figured I should say some things about myself…
My name is Melissa, I am 17 years old, blond, have blue eyes and I am a competitive dancer. I have a dog and an older sister and I live in a small town that is slowly turning into a terror city. I love to travel and my favourite thing to do in my free time.. which doesn’t happen much, is to read. I hate girly books.. they drive me nuts with all the gossip, lip gloss and cat fights. You have to deal with that enough in real life, why on earth would I want to read about it too?! I would rather read romance or fantasy or action, since I tend to be pretty mellow and normal, reading about people with crazy lives and fascinating super powers amuses me.
My favourite TV shows are the big bang theory, big brother, and the vampire diaries. I love pretty much all music, except screamo and country.. there’s only so much “hurting” songs I can handle. My mom might as well be a hick so I listen to her sing country all the time… its very unenjoyable.
I want to become a photojournalist so I pretty much take a camera with me everywhere. My dream job would be to travel and work for national geographic and just, explore the world! :)
