Before I say anything about how much I love this quote (whoops, too late!) I just want to say how adorable The Alison Show blog is. I actually just found it and started sifting through all the posts (I’m headed back there after I write this), but I already love how real she is and how she represents herself so honestly (with a fun, whimsical flare). I feel like I could tell her my love for unicorns and she would squeal, do my favorite dance move, and say, “me too!!” Needless to say, you should go check it out.
Ok, back to the quote. So, this quote kind of sums up my most recent life lesson. I had dinner with one of my good friends here in Texas a bit ago and she flat-out told me, I have been a bad friend. At first, I was like, “you love me, remember?” and then I started to let it sink in what she was saying. She was right, I have been totally self-absorbed and wanting her to invest time in our friendship when I wasn’t really investing in it.
This quote is a perfect reminder that: 1. you should only invest in people who invest in you and build you up, but also 2. you need to be worthy of someone’s investment. Especially as we get older, friendships require more effort and it is easy to let life push you apart, but thanks to my sweet friend, I will not be a friend who isn’t worth investing in (and just in case you were wondering, my friend and I are back to normal; texting ridiculous thoughts and confessing our diet splurges).
