To close out March. I’ve had a lot of time to reflect on my friendships and what type of friend I am.
Self reflection isn’t my favourite thing to do. I have to see my shortcomings. Trust me, I’d rather see only the good about me. But if we are to live this life as wholesome beings then it’s unavoidable. In this quest to be a better friend, I’ve had to redo my friend list. Turns out there’s such a thing as redoing a friend list. What I’ve learnt from my reflection is ‘best friend’ means something completely different to me and, therefore I have had to redefine that title.
I think taking responsibility and facing yourself in the mirror and being honest with yourself is major. And when you realise both the ugly and beautiful things about yourself you leave no room for attack or blame. Knowing oneself is the best weapon in life.
Sometimes God will shut your doors for a moment. For us to see the things we are uncomfortable with. For us to feel loneliness so that we can appreciate what’s in front of us, and for us to see which person will keep knocking at that shut door. That incessant person, that is your blessing. Hold onto them.
To the person who keeps knocking at my door and choosing me every single time, ‘even if I had one friend for the rest of my life and that friend was you, I think I’d be fine. I know am not without a friend.’
I’m feeling really grateful to God in this moment for the God-friends He has opened my eyes to. For the people who trust me with their hearts, and for my army of sisterends (sister-friends).
And huge thank you to everyone who has subscribed to the blog. I promise I will do my best to not only deliver bomb interviews but to always show you a glimpse of my heart. Truly appreciate each one of you.
Sending you love from London.
