I've been up and down a lot lately and just when I think I'm doing well, something else happens that I let affect me negatively and it sends me plummeting back down. This past week, however, I've been doing extremely well and I've really been making the effort to get back into contact with friends. I have a tendency to become extremely reclusive at times, especially when I'm feeling sad, but right now, I feel like things are mostly on the upswing. It's nice to know that I have love and support from my friends, even if they are scattered throughout the states.
Every single night this week I have been making phone calls to my friends. Monday was Micaela, Tuesday was Dan, Wednesday was Alexis and Jenn, Thursday was Max (although he didn't answer and I missed his return call), and then Tyler actually called me last night. I plan on calling Max again tonight, but in the meantime, I'm reflecting on those conversations I've already had and I'm looking forward to making more calls this next week.
Thank goodness for good friends, because without them, life would be a lot more difficult.
