They can lighten unbearable loads. Joy shared is doubled and sorrow shared is halved. Bad days become good ones and good ones only improve.
Last week was a bit rough. I had a really bad day where I felt ill and work just agitated the snot out of me. And as the week went on it seemed like the news only got worse. My dad’s sister found out that instead of having had Chron’s disease for the last four years she’s had intestinal cancer. It was definitely a week where I realized how much I needed my friends. The love and support of my friends helped with all of it. I felt better even if the situations didn’t improve, my attitude did.
I’ve always known that friends can help with hard times, but, it’s never been more realized in my life than now. I’m constantly amazed by how much just one person can turn the world around. It’s really awesome. I like it.
