I love my best friends. I only want the best for them. I want to help them when they’re struggling. Talk them through issues. Give them space and refuge. Treat them. Show them they are loved.
Then I decided (with the help of a dear friend) to do this for myself. So when I found myself one day completely tangled in knots, I asked myself ‘if I saw my best friend going through what I’m going through, what would I wish for her to do for herself?’ The answer came fast and clear. And then I knew what I had to do detangle. So now, I’m my own best friend first.
