Letting Go of Friendships

I’ve learned that things change, people change, and it doesn’t mean you forget the past or try to cover it up. It simply means that you move on and treasure the memories. Letting go doesn’t mean giving up… it means accepting that some things weren’t meant to be. It happens as we get older and […]

To You From Depression & I

Here’s a letter I wrote to my partner when I was at toughest point of my battle with depression. Dear You, I love you dearly, more than anything in this whole world. I think you already know this. I know you love me too, I just forget sometimes. Depression clouds my mind and fills me […]

My Message To You

…Yes You! Love yourself. Make peace with who you are and where you are at this moment in time.  Listen to your heart. If you can’t hear what it’s saying in this noisy world, make time for yourself. Enjoy your own company. Let your mind wander among the stars.  Try. Take chances. Make mistakes. Life can be messy and […]

Best Friends Forever? (Part III)

In Best Friends Forever? (Part I) I spoke about how a lot goes into maintaining a friendship. In Best Friends Forever? (Part II) I spoke about how to recognise when a friendship is turning or has turned toxic how to decide whether or not that broken friendship is worth saving. But what do you do when you realise the friendship […]

Best Friends Forever? (Part II)

As you may have read in Best Friends Forever? (Part I), I have been experiencing some dynamic changes in some of my friendships – some for the better and some for the worst. Some of them have been happening gradually. People change, grow and often they grow apart. That is ok and completely normal. What […]

Making Time For Our Friendships

We all have times in our lives when our priorities aren’t really on socialising. Whether it’s moving house (like I have just done), a new partner, a new job, or something else entirely that has captured all our attention, it’s important to find a way to make time for our friendships. No matter how busy […]

Being Friends

The other night on my way home, I was having one of my pondering sessions while wandering to the station. I was thinking about all those awesome people in my life, whom I treasure, who have left deep marks in my life and strangely the ones I talk to the least. So on one hand […]

The Gift of My Girlfriends

A Friend

“Good friends help you to find important things when you have lost them…your smile, your hope, and your courage.” Doe Zantamata This is the definition of a good friend, that person that helps you be the best version of yourself you can be. The version that is quick with a smile, that is full of […]

100 Years

“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.” A. A. Milne This is from the author of the beloved Winnie the Pooh books. For me it sums up what it’s like to have a friend, relative or […]

Friendship Through The Years

Friendships are complex and unique relationships because unlike family relationships, we choose to enter into them. And unlike other voluntary bonds, like romantic relationships and marriages, they lack formal structure and specific role titles. You would not go months or years without speaking to or seeing your significant other (in an ideal world), but you […]
