Superstar friends

9 Comments

I’m not one of those people that has lots of friends.  I know a lot of people, but consider a small percentage of them true friends. Of those true friends I have a superstar friend. So, what is a superstar friend?

To me, a superstar friend is someone who gets you – they understand your struggles, and even share some of them. They’ll let you bitch and whine when you need to, but they’ll also tell you the truth whether you want to hear it or not. They have their own opinions that you may or may not agree with – but you’ll know them. They will open your eyes.  They are there for you whenever you need them, and even when you don’t think you need them. You are there for them as much as they are there for you – and you are just as honest with them. You share things that you are embarrassed to share with anyone else. You’re not afraid to show your vulnerability, or failures to them. You both understand that sometimes ‘life’ gets in the way of constant contact, but that doesn’t change the support you have for each other. The friendship is never one-sided and there are no grudges held.  It’s a friendship that you hope will last forever (and you’re pretty sure it will).

I met my superstar friend 7 years ago online. Our friendship started with emails and then we met in person for a cinema double date with our husbands. Our husbands are both as laid back as each other, and I’m sure she’ll agree they are both geeks in their own way! They hit it off and we had a good laugh. The rest, as they say, is history. As the years passed our friendship grew. Initially she lived 5 mins from me. Now she’s a 5 hour flight away (yes, I’m still mad at her for that, but also happy that she’s happy). Technology is a wonderful thing (as I’m sure you will agree!) – most of the time it doesn’t matter that she’s so far away. I do miss spending time with her in person on a regular basis, but when we do meet it’s always awesome 🙂 We’re currently doing a 30 day challenge together and I love sharing the journey with her!

I am truly grateful for my superstar friend…you know who you are!

I’m a 30-something female who’s striving to be the healthiest woman I can be through diet and exercise. In early 2013 I was introduced to the world of Paleo. I completed Whole30 and had fantastic results. I had finally found something that worked for me! My blog is a jumble of my thoughts as I take the journey through my life. Somewhere for me to unleash my views, my challenges, my failures and my successes (hopefully!).

  2. Such a lovely post at a time when friendship is bandied around way too casually, young people these days seem to have 30 best friends, I don’t think they get the meaning of superlative, or they are very lucky!

  3. Hey, thank you for the follow on my blog. I really liked this post as I also have loads of friends and then my inner circle friends and then there is who I call my person. We have been best friends for about 14 years and still going strong. Nothing beats that friendship. When I try and explain our relationship to people I usually say that the term friend or friendship is too weak to explain what we have. I hope you get to see your superstar friend again soon, being far away from each other hurts in a very special way.
    Peace

    • Yes, ‘that’ kind of friend is very special indeed. I think that people who don’t have it don’t always get it – but I sure hope everyone has it! I hope that I see her soon too. Thank you for stopping by and for the follow 🙂
