Fake Friends Are Like Shadows
"Fake Friends Are Like Shadows,
They follow you in the sun,
But leave your side
When it gets dark"
One of the great things about having a mental illness and/or mental disability is that you learn who your true friends are. You learn that there are many wonderful people in the world who won't judge you just for your illness. You learn that some people will love you just the way you are.
If you lose "friends" due to your illness/disability, realize they were never your real friends to begin with. I don't know about you, but I rather have one true friend than a bunch of fake ones.
I want to thank my dear friend of 21 years, Adelle Adored (her second life name), for being there for me when it got the darkest and scariest. I remember how badly I wanted to die and how determined I was to give up but this girl did the simplest of things such as going on a drive with me, listening to my struggles, and sending me friendly texts. It was those simple things that saved my life!
I wish more people knew the power of a phone call, a text, an email or im. It really can save a life.
Who are your true friends? And have you been a true friend to someone else? Your phone call or text can save someone.
