Aside from my usual “new years” goal, to be a perfect blend of Mary Poppins and Martha Stewart, I am also going to push myself to be a better friend, to actually be a friend. Last year was very dark for me, the last 2 years actually, and I retreated from life. I unfriended/deleted/retreated from pretty much everyone I knew, interacted with no one, certainly not in real life and barely here on the internet. I reached out to no one. I wasn’t there for anyone, had no one over, I made absolutely zero deposits into the friendship bank. This year, I aim to change that. I’m going to set the bar pretty low to start, maybe send text messages, try and reestablish friendships. But the point here is, I am going to try, I am going to be a better friend this year, heck, maybe even have people over to swim this summer. I know, I know, just set the bar at medium with that. Here’s to brutal honesty and being a better friend.
