I keep going to these things; holiday parties, housewarmings, yoga, birthdays.
I meet these wonderful women; supportive, kind, beautiful, open hearted. And I spend the rest of the evening gushing with these women about men and work and family, falling out of shoes, our feelings about eyeliner and our butts. And we exchange texts later about how much we want to be real life friends when this night is over.
It’s wonderful and always serves as a reminder that there is a big world of kindness out there.
Friendship doesn’t have to be built on hating the same things. It can be built on just simple listening. Time spent noticing the kindness in someone’s face when they’re really listening to you. And endeavoring to give them the same gift in return.
It feels really good.
I want more of this.
I want more relationships that are just about supporting and being supported. It feels so nice.
