God Put People In Your Life For A Reason, And I Will Forever Be Thankful For My Girls

Sometimes you never know why certain people come into your life and I'm okay with that.

God Put People In Your Life For A Reason, And I Will Forever Be Thankful For My Girls
Nini Tran

For as long as I can remember I have always loved having friends in my life. I always said that people come and go for a reason and whenever I stopped being friends with someone I always got super upset as to why that happened. I started realizing that certain people come into your life for one reason or another and I've learned to accept whatever the reason may be.

I don't know about you but I have always been a very social person. I have always loved the idea of having a lot of friends. I always had a group of friends that I would always go out with and then i had my work friends and then I had my lacrosse friends. Needless to say I had a lot of friend groups. But as I got older I made mistakes and a lot of my old friend groups learned of what happened and they left.

Now, I am not saying that I blame them for not being my friend anymore that was completely my fault but at the same time I was super sad. I always thought in my head that if I was always so forgiving and I would forgive them if the roles were switched then why wouldn't they forgive me. That was when I realized that God really did have a plan for me and removing people from my life was one of them.

Let's fast forward to a few months to when I crawled out of my shell. I started volunteering and became a high school youth group leader and that was when I started making friends again. But instead of being SUPER friendly with everyone I was partially friendly and partially kept to myself.

When you lose 95% of your original friend group you kind of lose yourself and you just don't know who you really are anymore. That was one of the reason to why I wasn't as social as I used to be. I was scared that the new friends I had made were just going to leave me again. Little did I know; they became some of my closest friends.

These girls truly have been my rock through everything. Yeah we don't go out as much as I used to but part of me has been perfectly fine with it. Which got me to thinking; I never knew I needed these friends until they came into my life.

The more I hung out with these new friends of mine the more I started to open up and be more of myself. I started to let them in but most of all; I started to show them my heart. These friends accepted me for who I was but more importantly they accepted me for my past mistakes.

We all get upset when the friends that we made are no longer part of our life. All the memories you created together is gone and sometimes we feel like a part of us is missing. But my favorite saying that got me through my summer of lonesome is that sometimes God takes certain people away for a reason.

Sometimes those friends will come back but whenever our friends are no longer part of our life that just means better friends are made to come into your life. If you had told me that a year ago I would have laughed and said no way; now that I am older I can't help but be thankful for the new friends that God had brought into my life.

We live in a world where we feel the need to have multiple friends and be loved by everyone. I live in a world where being loved and liked by the right people is more than enough. Words cannot begin to express how thankful I am for my amazing friends coming into my life when they did. The memories that I have created with them have been amazing and I don't think I have ever laughed and grow as much as I have with them in my life before.

When one door opens, another door closes. Everything happens for a reason. Whatever the saying is; it's all in God's hands and He has a plan for us. We just have to learn to go with the flow and ride the wave.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
