Day 21 - 30 Days of Truth

Day 21 - Read this scenario - Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?

No question. I would be at her side in an instant. Arguments are trivial and when a life hangs in the balance it doesn't matter anymore what you were fighting about. There will be time for discussion and resolution (if it even matters anymore) later. You never want the last words you say to a person to be something mean, spiteful, or hurtful because you'll regret it the rest of your life.

Best friends are best friends because they are alike enough to not let trivial things come between them. And hopefully they are grown up enough to realize that when the big things come along, that they can't be controlled and it's not anyone's fault. Be supportive and be there for each other through thick and thin on both sides. It's a hard lesson to learn and yes - it hurts. There are times it hurts so much you think it would be easier to just run away but it wouldn't be. So you swallow the pain and put on a smile and you're there for each other because you know if it was the other way around, she'd be there for you.
