Occasionally I find that I feel like I should be apologizing to people for who I am.
Sorry that I enjoy country music. Sorry that I say all the wrong things and laugh too loud. Sorry that I have a unique style and a curvy body. Sorry that I don't often say much and that i have a wickedly dirty mind. Sorry that I enjoy my own company, haven't had a boyfriend yet and find joy in a really great book. Sorry that I appear unwise and immature at times. Sorry that I am not everything I
But you know what saves me from actually apologizing to them? I realise that these people are in my life because they choose to be. Because they have unconditional family love for me. Or because like me, they have finally found the people who will stick around through it all and still be willing to hand out the best kind of friendship, admiration and love because all those little quirks and qualities make up best friends.
