Sweetheart News - On Being a True Friend

| No Comments

Hello to all my sweethearts! 


I hope you are all doing well and feeling as cute as I know you are. 

Well I thought the subject for this issue would be being a true friend, which matters a lot to me.  To me, being a true friend means that I continue to care about someone without expectation.  Sometimes a good friend I care about will drift apart, and I'd be lying if I said it doesn't hurt.  But I try my best to understand, and not to be bitter or resentful.  I believe that if a friendship is true, then they will eventually connect again and that's why its so important for me to never abandon my friends, or take things personal. 

I have felt very exhausted lately from business and obligations...  I'm beginning to build accomplishments in my life, and I'm trying not to OVER-extend myself and become another burnout candidate.  Oh, I've been there BELIEVE me...  With that, I've been working on a new project to help decompress those feelings, so far titled Burning Out Of Fuel.  The title may change, just thought of it yesterday actually.  I see it as not especially "sweet" or "nice", and maybe if anything feeling a little guilty that maybe I haven't been the best friend I could have been to people. 

Sometimes I feel my hard charging attitude I develop in order to be successful and get things done - I feel like maybe it polarizes the people in the relationships I care most about.

On Being a True Friend

Always On Your Side – November 8, 2009
If you believe in me, I'll always be on your side.
I remember the way I felt from ex-friends that lied,
so I'll let myself down before I ever hurt you.
Because if I know you as well as I think that I do
then you deserve the benefit of the doubt.
Maybe someday you'll come back to me,
but if not I guess I'll just do without.
When I Care – November 8, 2009
When I care about someone as much as I do
I'll do whatever it takes to make sure I get thru.
At The Greatest Expense – November 11, 2009
My successes come from my
own diligence, you see.
But glory in my life
comes at the greatest expense to me
as I develop a hard charging personality.
When I burn only the hottest of red fire energy
it makes me worry that I burn up the people
I hold most dear....
when I watch as the people I love
break away and disappear...

I Wish To Hold The Hand That Covers My Mind

Here is a drawing I did back in... 1996 or 1997?  Its a visually peaceful metaphor for what can be many things that can cause anxiety or mental distress.  To me, it was a hand... and oh such a pretty hand!
