I stand before you on my feeble, wobbly soap box to preach to you the beauty of turning a crush into a friend. I’m not saying it is always easy; I am not even saying it is always the right move, but with the right blend of self reflection and honesty, the end of a crush can be the start of a beautiful friendship.
This season in my life right now is one of those times where I’m not being my own best friend. And here’s why: I’ve listened to what my family wants for my life instead of following my own heart.
Maintaining strong friendships is hard enough as an adult. Let alone when that friend is your ex-girlfriend.
