I had a good conversation with a friend last night. He has helped me tremendously in the past month and a half that I’ve known him. I have talked about him before as “my new friend,” but now I’m going to call him F for friend to make it easier. F has been going through new emotional territory lately and yet he has taken the time to make sure I’m ok when I need it. He’s usually around at just the right time to help me figure stuff out and talk things through. I love being able to help him, too. Nothing makes me feel better about myself when someone thanks me for being there for them. I don’t do it just to be thanked either. I actually feel better knowing that I’ve helped someone. I sound cheesy and trite, but I’m sincere.
