"Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity… it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.
This makes me sad, because some ppl just don't realize this. Allowing your friends to bad mouth your family is not loyalty. Choosing friends over family is not loyalty. It's no wonder why we aren't close. Blood apparently isn't always thicker than water.
And if you find out that they don't love you back, hold your head high, wish them well and miss them until someone who can and will love you comes into your life. I will not be made to feel badly for simply wanting love in my life.
