My day didn't really get off to the greatest start as I was having one of those, "no matter what I do or say I can not please anyone day". You know, you are damned if you do, and damned if you don't kind of days? even though all you have been doing is trying to help. All I am pretty sure I lost 95% of any energy I had being upset over this and the other 5% crying about it.
Thank goodness I have a couple of really great friends I can confide in, as that is exactly where it took me.
My one girlfriend and I have been friends since we were 15 years old with all our history going from there right through with the birth of our children, the breakdown of our first marriages, and so on and so forth. We lost contact for a number of years, but now we have reconnected it has been like there has been no break whatsoever in our friendship.
I have much to be thankful in this area of my Life, as to have a few lifetime forever friends is more rewarding then having hundreds of false friends in my eyes.
Emotional upset can so totally drain us of energy, can it not? Truly I think emotional drain can at times be much more exhausting then physical.
After pouring out my heart and soul, I was still drained, however felt so much better for another understanding and relating to what I was feeling. It feels liberating to have someone you can confide in that has also felt similar experiences to what you have yourself.
I am grateful to have friends where we do not judge each other, but understand. Friends who we do not have to walk on eggshells or beat around the bush about things Friends who if we say something that might hurt the other, that we are friends enough to say, "I am sorry" or "I screwed up" .... I always pray that I am as good of friend back to my friends, even though I find myself speaking out of turn more often then naught, or saying something that might not be just so or politically correct. My friends, my true friends, know where my heart is, and overlook these imperfections I have.
