Friendship

Posted January 22, 2020 from Zimbabwe

People often wonder why I am so keen on talking about friendships. I have had ups and downs in them. I was peer pressured at times but I usually was the instigator-Mrs know-it-all / done-it-all type. Some got lost along the way (good riddance lol), others we still strong. But above all I am grateful for those experiences painful as they seem but all in all, I cherish those who have boarded the train of friendship with me. I love my girlfriends they bring out the best in me and back me up on this journey of life. I grew up in a family of boys being the only girl, they were and still are my PIC’s (Partners in Crime), and they made my life seem so easy.

I celebrate friendship today because I know how it feels to be cared, loved, hurt, entertained, bullied etc. The list is endless but I tell you to Hold on to the memories because they surely are the best you can ever have.

I will talk about my experiences ….keep watching the space

Hello Tatty,

How are you doing? Thanks for your lovely post about friendship. That's funny, "PIC's:-)" How is your job and mentorship search going, by the way!?

Hope you're doing well and having a great week.

Hello Tatenda, thank you for sharing your story on friendship and for celebrating friendship. We all need friends in life, but sometimes we are betrayed by friends. We thank God for friends who stick on.
