Facebook Post 7th June 2017
Sitting here having a quick break from my admin and I am amazed at how far we have come. Friends have hung in by my side, others have decided they don’t want to be there any more.
Some I have debated with, others I agree wholeheartedly with.
Some have become more than acquaintances and work colleagues and grown to be close friends whilst others distanced themselves totally or have become a passing nod.
All is good though. I am, more and more, finding myself surrounded by people who are starting to accept that I am melodramatic, negative, loud, lacking in self-esteem and petrified of day to day life but that I am also loyal, kind, considerate, giving and fairly brave. They accept that I have reasons for the way I am and, although they may not always understand or they may wish I would stop being the way I am sometimes, they still hold onto my towrope if it is needed or cheer for me when I get something right.
For those who have left my side – that is fine – I no longer harbour any negativity towards you apart from regret that you felt you couldn’t stand there beside me but it is your choice and I am no longer hurt by it (well not as much as I was).
For those who have stayed by my side – either physically or cyberly – I thank you. For putting up with me.
