On Friendship

“Life’s better with company. Everybody needs a co-pilot.”- Ryan Bingham (George Clooney)  “Up In The Air”

Or a group of them.

Free love and all that.

Your friends are the people who are celebrating with you at your highest. They are the ones who offer to shank those who hurt you. They are the ones who you can just hang out with in silence.

They burrow their way into your hearts and refuse to let go.

And you (eventually) realize that you like having them there.

They are the ones who show up every Sunday for dinner.

They are the ones who you stay up all night with playing video games.

They are the ones who you can go months without seeing and fall back into old routines like breathing.

They are the ones who stand with you at the end of the day.

They are the ones who you can talk to for hours and not run out of things to say.

They are the ones who let you know when you’re out of line.

They are your people. Your family. You may fight. You may hurt each other sometimes. You may split for a while. But the ones who stick it out are in for the long haul. They will be there for you to lean on. To cry with. To laugh yourself sick with.

And you are thankful for them, all of them.

Keep them close.

Be there when they need you.

Let them be there when you need them.

No one has to be lonely.

Trust.

Christmas 2009

So whether it is your roommate, ex-turned-best-friend, co-worker, significant other, or the crazy wonderful people you meet through the Internet, do right by them.

They deserve nothing less.

    am totally and entirely one-hundred-cement in agreement with your post.

    esp the bit “They are the ones who you can go months without seeing and fall back into old routines like breathing.” <– that to me, being super-busy with being a mom and a working girl, is one of the most important things.

    and also the in-the-computer friends – they're some of my favourite.

    smooches to you, for being such a great ITC friend x

    “They are the ones who you can go months without seeing and fall back into old routines like breathing.”

    Those are kind of my favorite… they’re so rare. Like a friendship unicorn.
