Next Thursday my buddy Adam will be coming to LA from NYC to visit. Besides my mom, this will be my first real visitor who is in town simply to hang and enjoy the Cali sunshine.
My list of things to do with him keeps growing and we only have a little over a weekend to do it all. Anxious to show off my friends and have someone from back home see where I live and such.
He is a swell guy and it will feel so nice to have a friend here who has known me for more than a year. I anticipate laughter, adventures, and good talks.
Anyway, I have not been this excited in a while, so there!
At the end of the day, after all of the stress and the doubt of being a 20 something, all I need is to know is I have a good friend who believes in me. Someone who (without genetic obligation) unconditionally cares about me and can remind me of all the wonderful things I forget about myself. A friend who has an open mind and can understand that we will not always see eye to eye, but understands how special it is when we do. How empathy, compassion and support are three things we can never have too much of. And someone who can tell me the gods honest truth while looking me straight in the eye, and does it thoughtfully. Has my best interest at heart when giving an opinion and advice.
A friend that I can share my incredibly embarrassing confessions with and would never judge me for them or use those confessions against me down the road.
Anyway it’s been wonderful and completely refreshing to have built a friendship like this — and effortlessly. I am happy to have it and trust in it.
Hope everyone has at least one person in their life similar to this. I have no idea how I would get through things without mine.
Sorry to get all mushy just felt like it needed to be said. I could go on for days about this topic, but I’ll conclude here.
LA is an … interesting town and having people to survive it with are priceless. Period.
Always makes me think of the title of a song from a buddy’s band back in high school that always stuck with me, “Good Friends Are Hard To Kill”.
They will always have your back.
Let a new friend in my brain trust this week.
Feels nice to trust people a little bit again.
