Today (technically yesterday) I went to a new cafe with my gal pals and I initially tried to get out of going but they called me out on my excuses. I treasure those girls because it doesn’t feel like “negative pressure” when they urge me to go out. It feels more like “Hey we know life is hitting ya hard and you’re swamped but you do need to care for yourself and have a laugh.” And they never give me a hard time about asking if we can head back home (so I can hit the books).
When I start acting generically, like not holding quality conversations because I’m distracted, they call me out and pull me back into the present. Thankful for those girls keeping me accountable and genuine.
