It takes some uncertainty and general angst for me to reach out to my friends for help and advice. If I ever ever thought that there was no one who would drop everything to be there for me, I couldn't have been more wrong.
Today, is many ways, has reinforced what amazing friends I have. For instance, I was in my car, ready to turn around, go home and drug myself into oblivion with ice cream and milano cookies, but I called Aimee and she reminded me what a fucking great person I am. And I said "I know, I know" through my blubbering and she says "Well, I know you know but you really have to believe it."
This is a problem I often have. I forget to believe in myself and my ability to get through just about anything. If I didn't have Aimee to remind me, who knows where I would be. A cardboard box comes to mind. Oh how horrible! I mean I would certainly make it nice inside, but still.
Thanks to Suzie and Lisa L. too for reminding how strong I am. I forget sometimes.
