Being There

“True friendship isn’t about being there when it’s convenient; it’s about being there when it’s not”

Everyone leads very busy lives. I’m separated from my closest friends. I live in the city, and they’re all home for the summer at the beach. I’m a few hours away from home, so I don’t get to see them as often as I’d like. This is how life works, we will not always live in our hometowns, and distance will separate us for the remainder of our lives. This means effort must be put forth in order to maintain strong relationships. When it comes to special occasions, or difficult times I make my way back no matter what. It’s important to be there to celebrate the good, yet it’s more important to be there during the bad. There is nothing more important in life than the people we love.

My group of close knit friends has been through hell and back multiple times. Whenever we need each other to lean on, no matter what the distance or schedules are, everything is dropped to support one another.

So the next time one of your loved ones needs you, make time for them, everything else going on in your life can wait.
