day eight: share something you struggle with.

wow, I don't want to get too personal with this but I'll give it my best shot. I struggle a lot with developing friendships and having friends. You see, due to a past experience I have been quite selective with the people I surround myself with. I basically, got left out of and pushed away from a group of friends when I was younger and because of that I have a tendency to put certain walls up to prevent myself from getting hurt. I liked the idea of the friendship being on my terms. But I came to the realisation that I can't control everything. I can't control what people think of me. I can't control their actions, their every move.

I am also quite introverted so getting out there and making friends is on my list of things that I would like to do, I just get so anxious and then never do it.

But I am happy to say that the people that I have as my best friends now, literally mean the world to me. They have truly broken down those walls, and shown me that they are here to stay. They are going to be with me through it all.
I can honestly say that I am so blessed to have them in my life.
