You can't determine who walks out of your life, but you can decide whose life you walk out of.
Stuck like glue? Yeah, some friends are like that, they will be there for you no matter what. But friendship, it’s a group effort. Don't expect your friends to stay around when you don’t reciprocate.

Green Beans

Say green beans slowly and it sounds like gullible. Have you ever fallen for that one? I did, I also fell for my dad and sister telling me that if I tossed all the ice in the house outside on the ground it would snow, yeah, four dumped ice buckets and 2 hours of waiting later, no snow. To top it all off, a friend of mine well, you see one day at school she slipped me a note saying that the reason she was so sad that day was because, I could feel myself tear up as I read, she was dying of cancer, the note was smudged with tears and everything, she went all out on this one. I spent the rest of the day sick to my stomach, my best friend was dying. Oh boy did she get a laugh out of that one :) I can laugh about it now, but then, that was one of the most traumatizing moments of my 11 year old life. So heck yeah, I’m gullible. The question is, is that a good thing? Is it good to be that trusting? Or should a person be more skeptical? You decide. P.S. your shirts on backwards.

For The Record

All of these posts are my personal opinion! It’s a blog after all. I'm not trying to make you believe the way I do. Think what you wish, it’s up to you. I'm not going to try and convince you. If you enjoy my posts, read them. If you hate them or think they are stupid, please stop wasting your time on them, go read something else. Ciao!

Copy of a Copy

Peer pressure for a girl these days is so strong, for most of my life I have lived in Russia, the land of many tall thin bleached blonde Barbie dolls. The pressure to dress like a skimpy Barbie, and to be stick thin (seriously, it’s not like the States, one in about every 40 girls is overweight) is tremendous! I may not have lived in America for very long but it seems like it's hard here too, pressure to watch the same movies, listen to the same music, read the same books, wear the same brand of clothing, Uggs? Everyone needs a pair of those right? Seriously, the only unique people left are going to be the homeschoolers. No, I don't mean that, that's a little extreme. But my challenge to you is don't let it control you. Don't let the pressure of the world decide who you are going to be. You are unique, special, every one of you different! And that's what makes you so great :) don't lose that, don't ruin yourself. And don't get me wrong, being "in" is all cool, in moderation; just don't let it control you. If you like the Ugg style, go for it! But not if you're doing it to feel accepted.

Always Miss You

There are three things I believe to be true, Missing someone is very painful, not knowing if you are missed is excruciating, and knowing you are missed, is one of the most painful and beautiful feelings I can think of.
In my life, I have personally dealt with a lot of goodbyes; I've learned that I will always miss someone. I won’t always be in the same place with the same people; it is always going to feel like someone is missing.
But I can't be bitter about this, I can't sit around moping.
Reminding the people I am with about how much greater it would be if so-and-so was here is fine, but not if I let that take place of enjoying the people I have been given. How do you think the friends you are with would feel? I know that for me it makes me feel unimportant, like the fact that I even exist means so little.

Sometimes you have friendships where you really don't know if you are missed, and that kills. Its obsessive, you long to be missed, to know that the person cares about you as much as you care for them. You start to feel unloved, almost rejected. But you've got to remember that there is someone who loves you more than anyone ever could he cares for you, unconditionally. You need to stop obsessing over that one person and focus on the one who loves you no matter what. That doesn't mean give up on this person, it just means don't obsess.

God loves you, and so does your family, as the years go by people change, life moves on. Some friends will be there for years, other friends, not so. You can both change alongside each other, or the changes will separate you. But for the most part you can count on your family being there. And God, well, he'll be there no matter what.
