So this is what it's like to have friends

After a great nine-day stay here, my boys went back to The Princess this afternoon. I did a post on facebook about how quiet the apartment suddenly is. About an hour after that, one of my music friends - who I didn't even know a year ago - texted me:

On my way over with my guitar. I have wine.

Turns out, that's what it's like to have friends: They notice when you need company, and they make sure you have it. And most importantly, they bring wine!

I had no idea what it was like to NOT be isolated from people who might actually be nice to me. My life is slowly finding a good place to be!

I'm glad you have good friends Pass! You deserve them.

Isn't it wonderful? I love my friends so much and they have really stepped up for me too!

I am to the point now that I have become "that friend" for a few people in my life going through this roller coaster of emotions. I am so happy to give back!

Wonderful!! That is so genuine.

I agree, friends that I haven't seen in years have genuinely asked to get together to be there for me,

One of them ironically saw WH with OW the other night, her email to me said, I hope he is being honest with you, you deserve the best and nothing less. It's a shock to my college friends as they all enjoyed WH and loved us as a couple.

It is good friends that boost your confidence back up and give you that warm feeling.

I am so glad when I finally told my close friends......and boy they sure stood up for me in a big way.

Enjoy your friends!!!!

If we had a like button, I'd be hitting it several times. 😊

Thanks, y'all. I spend so much time complaining on here, that once in a while I like to tell the good stuff too.

I put up with The Princess isolating me from everyone except HER friends and family for years. Thanks to me finding out she was also a cheater, I found the strength to leave, and am discovering a whole new life. And I love it!

How amazing.

Very cool realization, Pass. Sounds like he's a great friend.

My friends drug me through the divorce when I was unable to walk on my own. They fed me, made me laugh, and listened to me cry. I have one friend from Italy that called and screamed at wxh in Italian because he was too pissed off to speak English.

Like Williesmom, my friends carried me through this mess. It was like they came out of the woodwork and circled the wagons to make sure I survived the devastation. I learned I had friends I didn't even KNOW I had ! Their support was amazing and I DID SURVIVE infidelity, thanks to all of them and our two amazing daughters. Lean on your friends, Pass…. after all, would you not do the same for them ?

When they are real, "Friends" is one of the few good F words there is!

That's really cool! My family has carried me through but they are out of town. Have some friends but they all have toddlers and busy lives.... Happy for you!

Great post. Made me

That is the definition of a real friend.

Damn. My musician friends never bring wine...they drink all of mine.
