Here's To The Real Friends Who've Stuck Around

You deserve it all.

I've had my fair share of friendships that have fallen out. It sucks to get close to someone and then realize that you aren't as good of friends as you thought. However, I've also had a couple friends that I have known since I was younger who have always stuck by me.

The ones I still talk to from home are always ready to listen to me. If something happens with school, family, a significant other, or any other problem, a friend should be there to listen. I usually just want to vent and have them tell me I'm right more so than getting reasonable advice. And, they have always done that for me. No matter how stupid the situation, and there have been some really dumb ones, they have always cared enough to listen.

The friends I have now are able to adapt to how I've grown as a person. We all went to colleges all over the United States. We've also had a lot of contrasting experiences that have shaped us into who we are now. College has forced us to grow into completely new people from when we graduated from high school. However, we all respect the decisions we have made and the differences in our personalities.

Whenever my friends and I get together we're all able to laugh at our younger selves. We bring up past experiences and stories that make us relive the cringe moments and enjoy the good ones. I know whatever I say around them, they aren't going to judge me and instead are going to support me in whatever I think or say. Through all the stupid stuff we did and all the serious situations we dealt with, we were always there for each other. We even mail bracelets to each other. They helped me through a lot growing up and I'm really thankful for them.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
