Will you have my back – be that friend?
Sometimes we need to remind people just how much they mean to us. How often have you noticed that friend who is silently sitting in the corner but screaming for you to be that friend who sees their pain? Have you ever told someone ‘You have their back’.
That friend can be:
When a child has a bad day and they can turn to their parents for support. When you have a bad day and you turn to that friend knowing you will get support. If someone close to you pushes you away because they are drowning and want to drown alone, will you be that friend to let them know ‘You have their back’.
A gorgeous friendship quote I recently shared on Instagram:
No matter what the books say about being friends with your kids, my children are my friends too but I don’t remind them enough that I am that friend they can rely on, that friend that always has their back.
There are some days I may forget to show you how I feel but I want to be that friend that you can lean on. There are some days when I get caught up in my own world and forget about what is happening with you. There are days when I break down, my spirit broken and I hide in exhaustion. Please be patient and be that friend I need.
BUT there are more days when I love just being in your company, listening to your stories and laughing alongside you. There are more days that I realise just how lucky I am to have someone who loves me for me. There are more days where you feed my spirit and I struggle to contain my joy.
To be that friend:
Will you have my back?
When life is difficult, determined to get me down will you be that friend who has my back?
Some days there is no time to share, time to listen or time to learn, will you still be there for me?
When mistakes are made, and shame follows, will you be the one in my corner holding me up?
When the laughs are free and growing up is like a challenge, will you be that silly friend by my side?
Will you be that friend that understands why I can feel lonely when I am surrounded by love?
Are you that friend for someone?
