“I just heard… Are you okay? I love you. Let me know if you need anything.”
I received this text the other day upon waking up. I gazed at the beautiful Swedish boy who lay next to me, still asleep with his arm hooked around my waist. I smiled. Not because of the boy but because of the outpouring of love and support I have been getting from my amazing friends.
Side note: go ahead and call me heartless for having sex so soon after my break up. Guys do the same thing and aren’t criticized for it. #FEMINISM
This text came from my very best friend, Kira. My soul sister. My everything. I’ve been feeling so empty without her because nobody gets me quite like she does. With her, there is no judgment or questions asked. She’s someone that will be there for me no matter what.
Another girl I have recently befriended is named Zoe. Although Zoe and I haven’t spent a lot of time together, I already feel connected to her. She’s a Seattle transplant and one of the coolest girls I have ever met. Upon first meeting, we spent hours chatting about everything. She’s beautiful inside and out. I’m lucky to have met her.
I got texts/calls from the usual suspects: Jen, Collin, Dominic, Jenny, etc… Yesterday, however, my phone dinged with an unusual message from someone I thought I would never hear from.
Remember her? Otherwise known as my ex-partner, Abie used to run TRM with me. Long story short, we got into a huge fight and, me being the way I am, decided to drag her through legal hell.
We haven’t spoken for months and I honestly missed her so much. I was beyond floored. Memories of us laughing together and watching Friends in her apartment flooded through my head. I wanted to cry.
Immediately, I responded saying how much I missed her and how touched I felt that she had gone out of her way to send me that message. I really miss her so much.
I spent so much time resenting her and here she was, ready to forget all of it and start anew. Though we may never work together again, my heart leaped at the idea that we will one day be great friends again.
