I had a best friend from year 10 at school and we still talk now although have sadly grown apart but other than her I don't speak to many people I went to school. The main reason being that none of them backed me up when I needed them the most and I spent my final years of school dreading each day and wondering who was going to turn on me next!
So it isn't surprising that in adult life I have very few people I can truly trust but the ones I do are the people I want in my life. I have a best friend. She is Godmother to my son and her husband is just as much of a friend to me as she is. We all worked together and have known each other for something like 8 years now. I was Bridesmaid at her wedding and she will be my Maid of Honour when we finally tie the knot.
|How young we were!|
I trust her with my life and know she will always have my back. I don't have to hold back when I talk to her and I can literally talk to her about anything. She knows what I am thinking just by the look on my face and I can totally tell when something has upset her. She is my best friend and I think she always will be.
Blogging has allowed me to meet some truly beautiful people and there are a select few I call friends. These are the ladies I wish I had gone to school with. I wish they had been there to have my back when everyone else turned on me. I wish they had been there when I realised I had fallen in with a bad crowd or when my first proper relationship broke down. We can't look back we can only move forwards and I am proud to have these ladies by my side to face whatever the future holds.
Here's to friendships, old and new!
