I built a friendship in my 30s. Something that I thought I would never have the patience of doing after the late 20s stints with some tumultuous friendships both business and personal. I think I had given up on making friends, I had given up on letting people in. I had been deeply hurt. I'm a Libra and we give friendship, so I felt that I was done. I was content with just giving myself to the people closest to me.
My circle became very small, I couldn't trust, my first insntinc is to protect your heart, playing defence all the time (disclaimer: I was going through a lot of heavy stuff in my life then) but I healed, Jesus healed my heart, I forgave myself in areas I was a bad friend, I forgave others as well, I released the burdens. I didn't anticipate that I would allow people in my life again. I would open my heart again.
Sometimes friendship hurts us, sometimes it teaches us, sometimes it heals us, sometimes it rescues us. I know I am a better person that friendship did all that too me, I am better because of it.
This is my friend @miss_sekoto we spend our time laughing, crying, being imperfect. But we do it loving one another, building each other up. I am happy, I give thanks, I am eternaly grateful.
