5 Minute Friday

Five Minute Friday

Friend

START

My mind is flooded just thinking about this subject. I have never had an easy time making friends. I am one of those painfully shy extroverts that needs time to really trust people enough to be who I am. I came into this military life and started it out so lonely, and determined to change it. Then I met all the wrong people who tore me down to the point that I didn't even want to know me.

But out of that, I somehow found the amazing people who would become friends with the real me. I am actually thankful to the friends who broke me down, and led me to the people I was supposed to know. When we moved, I left all that behind, and have met people here who will be my family forever.

God made me to be exactly who i am and I stopped fighting it and am just me. I love my people here. We talk and laugh and they put up with my extremely strange and silly personality. They are honest, and hard on me when I need it, and there for me when I just need to let it all out. They are a blessing to me, and I will always have them, no matter how far away.

STOP

  1. mmm ... I love that you wrote that God made you exactly who you are and that you stopped fighting it! YES! To be comfortable and thankful for the skin we're in is truly a life-giver!

  3. I wrote about this, too. I would hear my dad come home and complain about all of the people in the Navy that tried to tear him down. There never seemed to be enough "good" people there. So glad you turned it around and found yourself and your friends out of a negative situation. Thanks for sharing.
