Over the span of my life and sadly having many friendships fail, I feel like I have some insight into knowing how to choose the right friends. The friends that will take you forward in life, the friends that will cheer you on, the friends that you can do life with and not just for a short season.
All I wanted to be when I grew up was wife and a mom. You know have a family, live in a nice house with not a care in the world. I guess I could imagine it because my mom did such a great job at making me and my brother feel loved and taken care of. So it didn’t seem like a very far fetched thought to imagine me having what she created for us.
Have you ever been so hard on yourself that you never allowed yourself room to fail? I grew up thinking that way. From a very young age I felt like I was never good enough, even if I put my best foot forward it simply was short of what was expected. Can you imagine having that kind of pressure at the age of 5 years old?
