An Open Letter From Your Shittiest Friend

So my best friend and I have this agreement that we always treat the next time we talk like we talked yesterday. So we’re always happy to hear, happy to connect, and happy to see each other even its been months (or years, bc I am the EPITOME of shitty friend/sister/family member). Sometimes I feel so crushed by the anxiety of disconnection that it makes connecting seem impossible. She’s has the same problem, so we decided to let the space between us exist and not worry too much about it. Letting life come into that space is easy, but I always struggle with understanding that I don’t have to push everything (including me) out of the way to close the gap. I love that you shared this, bc I feel this so deeply all the time. Thank you.
