Hey, let's talk about....true friends

They say the best things in life are free such as family, friends, love, laughter, hugs, kisses, sleep & good memories. I'm pretty sure we have all experienced all of these. I think your really blessed to have true friends. Some of you may be sat waiting to figure out who your true friends are or may even be sat waiting to meet them. Have faith that they are on this planet somewhere, you just need to be patient.
 Most of us when we leave school & go in to the big wide world will then realise who are true friends are. In school you might be friends with people just because you all have the same thing in common, you spend most of your day & week at school. But trust me once you leave, you'll find that's when you find out who your true friends really are. Don't worry it's a good thing.
You realise who was just with you for that part of your life. Then there is the other people who will continue with you through your journey of life. Unfortunately you will sometimes probably not take anyone with you but you know what, that's fine. You will soon realise to just focus on you & then you will build friendships with people without fully realising how much of a friendship you have built.
I can safely say that since experiencing trouble with my mental health I have built some fantastic friendships along the way. Yes, we all have the same thing that links us all together, mental health. But I don't see any of them as an illness or a problem, like some people might do. I see them as a lovely bunch of people, not crazy..okay, maybe a little bit..hehe..but who actually is normal? Is there even such a thing as normal? Who knows? Who cares?
Our topic of conversation isn't just around mental health. Yeah, we openly speak about it & if we are experiencing trouble then without a doubt we talk about it because you know what, it's okay to talk about mental health. But really we just have conversations like every other person on this planet.
So basically what I'm saying is if your lucky to have true friends around you, okay..maybe sometimes not literally around you. But we do have ways to communicate letters, phones, emails, Skype, twitter..whatever you like to use! Just remember to keep hold of them & treat them just as you would want to be treated.
I'm so grateful for the friendships I have made over the last year or so & I plan to keep these friendships going, you all know who you are..I love you guys! Don't ever change, you are who you are!

  1. brilliant post! your posts keep getting better and better since your first one :D and so true, I have lost a lot of 'friends' through mental illness but they were never really true friends to begin with. But I have found lots through twitter and I guess I still have that to look forward to in real life too :)

    1. aww thank you Marie :) exactly, always remember that :) that's the spirit! :D xx

  2. I really loved this post, I was actually thinking about putting up a post very much similar to it. I really liked how you said, "treat your friends the way you would like to be treated yourself". And at times I would forget this.
    Keep up the brilliant work Anna,
    love ya ta bits :)
