Why The Friend Who Came Into Your Life The Quickest, Last The Longest

Why The Simplest Friendships Last a Lifetime

Friendships are complicated. They come in all kinds of different forms and happen for different reasons. I am a firm believer that everyone comes into your life for a reason. Some come suddenly and ditch, some take time form, and some come suddenly and you feel like you’ve known them your entire life. No awkward stage, no feeling annoying for hitting them up daily or asking them when they can hang out, never feeling uncomfortable about your conversations, never feeling like a nuisance.

I am so grateful for these friends for being so upfront and inviting. They were so confident in themselves and friendly, which is super respectable. It was so easy to talk to them about anything at any time. I’m am so grateful for all the memories we share and will share in the future.

1. They’re Confident In Themselves

They say whatever your friends are, you eventually become. Who wouldn’t want to rub off of a little confidence? For someone to be so approachable right off the bat, they have to be confident. They have to be able to feel comfortable approaching those they don’t know very well, which also makes them appear very inviting.

2. They Are Very Inviting

Obviously, to feel that they are very approachable means that they are inviting, aka they’re friendly and respectful.

3. You “Just Click”

To “just click” clearly there has to be a reason. Either you guys are basically the same person or just simply get along really well, which is great.

4. No Awkward Conversations

It’s super easy to talk to them about anything. Nothing seems to be off the table and no one feels uncomfortable. A friendship isn’t a friendship until you see what’s beyond their walls.

5. You Don’t Feel Like A Nuisance

You can text them/SnapChat them daily and it just feels normal. You can ask them to hang out whenever, even if it’s just to go on a coffee run. Feeling like a bother is one of the worst feelings in any relationship, so to skip over that is such a relief.

6. Y’all Form The Best Memories

From the very beginning, you guys were able to experience fun little adventures with plenty of stories and inside jokes. A memory holds a bond, and a bond is the element that causes you to care about someone, and then you’re stuck. Not always a bad thing, though, because it always means more memories are open to form.

Dear Mom, I Hope You Know

I hope you know that I am here for you--until the very end.

Dear Mom,

I hope you know that I appreciate you.

You are the hardest working woman I know, continuously putting your family before yourself. Thank you for doing all of the tedious jobs that no one wants to do like keeping the house in order, cooking the food, and doing the laundry. Thank you for constantly putting up with my siblings and I. Thank you for always supporting us in our interests and hobbies. Thank you for investing in our daily lives and listening to our minor problems. Thank you for always loving us unconditionally.

I hope you know I'm sorry.

I know I can be a big pain in the butt sometimes, and for that I'm sorry. I'm sorry for yelling at you, arguing with you, not listening to you, and making dumb decisions at times, but thank you for loving me anyways. Thank you for helping me stand back up, teaching me right from wrong, and pushing me to be the very best version of me.

I hope you know your love inspires me.

You live your life with a love that is contagious. Whether its nurturing love, tough love, friendly love, or romantic love, you have it all and you show it daily. The love you and Dad share is something I hope to find one day and the love you have for your family is evident in the way you constantly put us first.

I hope you know that you are my biggest role model and hero.

Ever since I was a little girl, you have been the person I have looked to in my life. You are strong, independent, confident, loving, supportive, and nurturing-- everything I strive to be as a woman and as a future mother. You give the best advice, even when I don't always take it. Though, I should know better by now because mothers always know best. Without you in my life, I honestly don't know where I'd be.

I hope you know that you are my best friend.

Not only are you my biggest cheerleader supporting me in everything I do, you are the person I talk to about everything, whether it's good or bad. I'm honestly so thankful for the relationship we share because I've had countless screwups and you literally give the best advice. Seriously, thank you for being the person I can count on at all times, at any time of the day or even night to just talk with. I mean we really do have some of the best conversations, best laughs, best cries (when needed), and the most fun watching cheesy chick flicks together or going on crazy shopping adventures.

I hope you know that I am here for you--until the very end.

I don't mean to make you cry or anything -- even though you probably already are, but I want you to know that when the time comes, I'm going to be there for you just like all of these years you've been here for me. I will be there to support you, talk with you, laugh with you, cry with you, and love you for all of my life.

Honestly, I can't really imagine my life without you -- but it doesn't matter because I wouldn't be here without you, so here's to you.

Thank you for being you.

Love you lots!

Your daughter.

Sometimes You Need To Stop And Listen To What People Are Saying

Stop developing your own opinion before the person finishes their sentence.


We are living in a world full of opinions, but no one is listening to each other. Everyone seems to be getting upset about not being heard, but are they taking the time to listen? I doubt it. Lots of people in my life haven't taken the time to actually listen to what I have to say. They just want to fix me, I don't want to be fixed, I just want to be heard.


Depending on what the individual is saying to you, should affect how you respond to them. Are you taking time to think your response through? Are you putting that person before yourself and your desires first? Are you actually there to give them the energy they need to feel that you are listening?


If you answered no to any of those, you need to make a change. You know now that you aren't being the best friend, daughter, son, co worker, spouse, significant other. You don't have an excuse not to listen now. So start listening, stop being self centered around your own thoughts and feelings and listen to someone else's for a change. The thing about listening to someone doesn't always mean what you listen to you agree with, but have more empathy for others, and listen anyway. Don't always have the reaction to shoot them down as soon as they finish their sentence. Stop and listen and be there for people, it's so important.
