F is for Friends
I understand what the definition of true love is because of my 2 best friends. I know what loyalty is because for the past 7 years I've had 2 people in my life, who have never failed me. 2 people who stood by me as I watched my world crumble. 2 people who held my hand through my darkest moments, and never let it go. I have friends who have never seen me cry, but my 2, my soulmates held me as I let down my waterfall of tears. I am sure I have friends that don't even know my mother passed away. I met my 2 a couple years after her death, and the wounds were still fresh. When I finally opened up to them they loved me beyond measure. Took care of me. They welcomed me into their families, their parents treat me as if I was their own daughter. That sort of unconditional love I never even knew could exist outside of my own familial relationships. I have such a hard demeanor, I know I do. I spent most of my childhood in pain, so I try my best to stay as far away from that type of emotion. I have become this beautiful person. On the outside I was always tough, but privately I was a wreck. Dealing with loss and issues at home. My 2 help me get it together on both sides, publicly and privately. Never once did they complain. They loved me through it. They told me the truth, even when it was hard to hear. I owe them my life, and that's exactly why they are stuck with me. That's exactly why I am not easily impressed by words, I need that action behind it. They are the reason I am so sure of my worth. When it comes to men, I see no point in dating someone who doesn't possess the ability to love me from beginning to end. I see no point in dealing with people who I do not deem reliable. Will you love me into health? Because I'll dedicate my care to you if you promise to do the same. I learned that type of love from my 2. A big thank you them. My very best friends turned family.

I am young, and still trying to figure this adult thing out. I come from a West Indian household, and my life has been a series of unexpected events, like most.
