The weak points are what help me today.
I at 39 and she at 9 struggle have struggled
with the same things.
She wrote something that made me stop
Her last journal entry was on my laptop
I couldn’t help but feel sad as I learned
that she was struggling with friends
She was tired of secrets and being told no
I thought about friends
and my experience
We talked, shared ideas and
got to a place
A place where she could lean into
spending time with people who believed she was
I told her never to beg.
Never to beg for
Friendship, love or a job.
I told her she was in control, and
should never be mean, but also could set boundaries.
I told her not to drop the friends who had always been there
I told her I had been there and knew a lot about dealing with friends
I told her fourth grade is tough, but she will always figure it out.
I told her to pray about it.
I prayed about it.
Tonight I remembered a lot about friends.
