Girls

I’m unsure why. But for the longest time, I had a hard time connecting with girls. I seemed to only ever want to focus on boys. Mostly because1 it was because it was easier for them to understand me. What I didn’t realise was that they only seemed to understand me because they wanted more from me than the friendship I treasured. Facebook is a funny thing in that way. It’s allowed people to connect to me who I never would have seen again2 and also allowed them to tell me how they used to have a crush on me.  Oh, so that’s why you were my friend… great, thanks.

But these days, I treasure my girls. There aren’t many of them but I treasure them with every ounce of treasuring I can muster. I’m grateful that I’ve been able to experience what it feels like to connect with people who aren’t interested in anything more than friendship; people who honestly like me for me and not because they can use me for something. I’m not sure I’m able to articulate just how grateful I am.

J: I hope you’re reading this because you’re at the top of the list. We have this weird sense of humour and this certain way of talking but I feel like we always understand each other and I’m so grateful for facebook for allowing us to find each other. You have no idea how much it means to me that you came to visit me months after we first contacted each other on facebook. I honestly hope to never be without you in my life ever again.

H: even though you’re leaving me to go back ‘home’, I hope you know that I understand and that I only ever want the best for you. I will miss you but I so hope to visit you often3! You, too, understand me in a way that I don’t think anyone really does and I truly hope we never drift apart.

C: My girly girl. You’re the inspiration for my girliness and I can’t thank you enough. If it weren’t for you, I think I might have ended up a tomboy forever. I always have a great time when you’re around and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I only hope you feel the same!

There are more… but my glass of wine is done and i really must retire. Sorry for the drunken post but it was inspired by honest feelings!

Who in your life do you treasure4?

  1. You and I have had the same dilema, which is interesting… the whole tomboy thing. I just started the girliness in 2008.

  2. Funnily enough most of my friends have been boys as I was the one they never dated but always came with their girlfriend/wife problems to me lol.
    With traveling to and fro I miss having some close Lady friends. It’s just the two of u here in vast Canada at the moment.

  3. Sisters…and cousins.
    I don’t have any super-close girl friends (“best” friends, if you will). I used to, but that’s a blog topic for another day.
