Yeah off the cuff that is very supportive but although this quote is inspiring…I’m not so sure I can do without my sister’s friendship despite it all 🙄
Oh I'm sorry, hope it didn't trigger you. 🤞

Thank you lovely, it truly was inspiring… but had my first psychotherapy assessment today… it was emotional…didn’t even realise how this effected me. I just responded to your quote from the gut. Was hoping for another more inspiring quote… never meant to upset you 💜 I guess this is exactly why this forum is here. Xxx

Psychotherapy assessment... I'm sorry to hear that was difficult for you.

I feel the same... not much of a friend to myself though, might be the real issue... dunno..
Yep, might be so… i do feel a bit unlovable even though I’ve been a good friend to many… sisters are a little bit poopy, BFFs who expect that kinda friendship but don’t actually wanna reciprocate…a lot more poopy… we should both start liking/living ourselves! We totally deserve that… so how do we achieve this?🤔

Sorry to hit you with a bit of the Buddha trip but Metta Bhavana might help, Google (or use another search engine of your choice, others are available!), there is a fare outline of the basics on Buddhanet.

It is very difficult to find a person you trust. Who is willing to invest in that friendship just as much as you ... somehow it all comes down to the benefit they want to derive from your friendship. As their problems are always much more important than your personal problems. At least that’s my experience with most friends.
