The loss of one friend is hard enough. I lost two to cancer yesterday. And the third to me accidentally triggering some deep insecurities in her. I am focusing on the two I lost to cancer. Still unpacking that last one.
When I lost someone who was always there for me, it reminded me of the simple fact of feeling alone but never being alone. My friend was always there for me while I struggled to escape an abusive home environment all of those years ago.
