I Can’t Lie

Last night I caught up with an old friend.

Not just any friend mind you. My best friend from high school, whom until last night, I hadn’t spoken to in almost 10 years!

Once again, we’re in a similar place in life & she messaged me on Facebook. After two hours of catching up, it was like no time had passed.

It’s funny because I was thinking a lot about my absence of the “best girl friend” in my life. I have close female friends, but that role of BFF as it were has been empty & absent since mine moved to Sarnia last year. No one has ever really filled that void for me, even though I have close girlfriends, some I think of as closer than family.

So, it was funny that as I was thinking about my two best girlfriends from my youth, one messaged me out of the blue.

It’s funny how the universe will give us what we need exactly when we need it. Whether you thank God, fate, or coincidence, I love how life always sees to come through for me. I was longing for a part of my youth & it was delivered. It’ll be interesting to see how we all interact as grown women with kids & ex husbands. We’ve all grown up from those silly teen girls predicting our future with a Ouija Board (to our credit, they all came true except for one & that remains to be seen hahaha). Sometimes, you just have to see the signs, subtle or otherwise & find your way.

  1. Nice post. It’s always hard to continue high school friendships when life, college, work, and new relationships evolve. My best friend & I have been friends since 6th grade, we’ve struggled throughout the years since high schools, she’s even built a bond w. someone she considers her other BF. I must admit it was really hard for me to accept she shared a similar bond with someone else, but we’ve since reestablish our foundation and commitment to our friendship. So as we’ve grown, and progress in our careers, I am more sure than ever that she is my BFF, and regardless of where we go in our lives, we will remain friends and our friendship will continue to grow. Friendships our like relationships people need to feel wanted, loved, and appreciated you. You must nurture your friendships like you do your children, or your spouses. Not saying it’s the same level of responsibility, but being a friend is more than being contact in your phone book! I’m glad you’ve two connected, when you have a chance check out my blog at singleandexisting.com/
