Things Every Friend Should Know

There are few things in a friendship that can be taken for granted.

  • You don’t have to apologise to me for not texting back when you have so much going on.
  • You don’t have to apologise to me for “going silent” or not reaching out when you’re not feeling yourself.
  • You don’t have to apologise to me for cancelling plans when you really need to prioritise yourself and your mental health. Infact, there’s nothing more I want than you to prioritise yourself.
  • You don’t have to apologise to me for telling me how you feel.
  • You don’t have to apologise to me for being “needy” when you need somebody there.
  • You don’t have to apologise to me for talking about your mental health, you’re not a burden. I want to listen, always.
  • You don’t have to apologise to me for being a bad friend when you’re distant. Friendships aren’t always going to be easy but we chose each other and I’m here for it all.

What would you add to the list?

        My pleasure,

        But it’s true!
        I saw a lot of blogs, many with empty content but lot of followers, some others with good content, and just a few followers. But yours is well balanced, your content is appealing and you have a good progress with followers. Is good to see that!

        I hope my content also be appealing for you, I don’t post that often though.
