Those friends that you can text “I need you” and the phone rings

Have you heard of ride or die friends? Those friends who will be there with you to the end. When you have such people in your life, even if its just one person, you are rich and blessed. Last year around this time I sent an early morning text for help and it changed my trajectory.

Today I write a small piece in honor of that friend who stood there with me while chaos surrounded me. The pandemic didn’t matter. The economy didn’t matter. We mattered. I mattered.

Cherish those individuals who will drop everything to help you. So many people are busy doing 101 things each day, these days. Yet, there’s one that will stop and hold out their hand.

  1. I believe this is a major point in a world where everyone someone meets becomes another “friend.” For me genuine friendship is about trust and caring in action and not based on lip service to the label “friend.” Great topic.
