I recently broke up with my boyfriend of one and a half years. It was the hardest thing for me to do, but it had to be done – especially after I came to the conclusion we didn’t have the same goals for our lives. I fell into your typical depression: I couldn’t eat or sleep, had anxiety, and was mad at the world. My best friends, Katina and Casandra, would call me, and I’d ignore their phone calls because I wanted to wallow in my sorrows.
One evening I was home on a date with my two favorite guys, Ben & Jerry (ice cream) and my doorbell rang. I went to the door and looked in the peep hole, and it was Katina and Casandra. I was upset initially when I saw them because I didn’t want company. I opened the door, and they came in with an earful about how I was handling the breakup. They gave me an intervention, and I was not in the mood for it! Both of them shared stories on how they dealt with their breakups and gave me words of encouragement. After our talk we prayed, and I felt at peace about being single.
Later that evening, we all got dressed up and hit the town. I had so much fun that night thanks to them! The three of us made a pact that evening never to go through a challenging obstacle by ourselves. We are friends, and we will be there for each other no matter what. I always appreciated my friendship with Katina and Casandra, but after that night, I love those two ladies even more!
