I have a number of friends that I consider close or even best friends but they are all vastly different from each other and myself I might add. Each of my friends have their own way of doing things that works for them and in the grand scheme of things that's perfectly alright.
I have one friend in particular whom I love dearly and though I haven't known her as long as some of my other friends we are just as close. She is the one person other than my mother that I speak to everyday without fail. She wants nothing but the best for me and vice versa. So imagine my surprise when I realized I totally despise an aspect of her character. Perhaps despise is too harsh or the wrong word to use but presently I can't come up with another. I know that I'm not perfect unless I say I'm perfectly flawed, but there is this side of my friend that is a bit callous and spiteful which seriously disturbs me. Am I judging or projecting? I'm not sure, but I feel like everyone's feelings bear some consideration and it seems that this is where she and I disagree.
Ultimately I know true friends agree to disagree all the time and that my friends are my friends because of their unique qualities. I just have to come to terms with the fact she must live her life as she sees fit whatever the consequences.
