I've been feeling low and down lately
so today's prompt
really touched me.
What makes a good friend?
a good mate possess the qualities
I would expect from myself.
Loyalty, love, humour and sensitivity.
And bringing a bottle of wine
to every event is a plus.
With Scott away,
I'm feeling lonelier than ever.
I have good mates,
but have found myself
questioning some over others.
All my mates here are incredible.
They have been super supportive
with Scott away.
They want to make sure I'm ok.
It makes me feel loved.
And shows me they are in fact
not just good mates,
but great ones too.
I also have a couple of mama mates.
There's a group of mamas
I "met" when I was pregnant.
While I don't often think I have a lot in common with them
I feel loved and special.
And that makes a good friend.
I've come to realise,
I really have nothing in common
with many of them.
I'm not sure if it's loneliness,
or self pity,
but I'm not sure if many of them think
of me as a mate.
however have a couple of them
that are incredibly supportive.
And despite never having met them
I think of them
as some of my best mates.
did I answer the question?
A good friend
is someone who's there for you,
who doesn't make you feel unwanted,
who listens to you
even though they may not be able to relate.
And I'm glad to have some of those
in my life.
