On friends and website frustrations

Mood: Half furious, half confused, half contemplative (okay, that’s three halves; so sue me)

Ah, yes. There’s nothing quite like working on a touching, heartfelt tribute to a dear, departed loved one, then posting it and having this f*ckw*d site eat it for breakfast.

Sometimes I’m not sure why I’m on this site anymore. I expect to come back to that theme again. It’s been on my mind a lot lately. For now I’ll just say that I came here looking for something, and now I seem to be looking for something else. Or finding something else that’s different than what I was looking for. Or something else has found me. Or something. I told you I wasn’t sure.

I’ve met some wonderful people on here. I feel very close to a few of them, even though we don’t live near each other. For now, that’s good enough to keep me here. It feels good, anyway.

One of my new friends is facing a problem I faced a few years ago. I came through my problem fine, but it was and continues to be a struggle. I’m doing what I can to help her. It doesn’t feel like a lot, but she says it helps, and that’s what matters. She helps me, too, more than she knows. I didn’t have a lot of people helping me. She does. And she has me. I’m not leaving her side. I’ll be here as long as she needs me.

If this site disappears tomorrow, I will be here for her.

Yeah..isn't it strange how what you end up with is nothing like what you set out to find. And yet despite that, it is exactly what you needed. I wasn't looking for a lover and yet, when I wasn't watching, love snuck up behind me, spun me around and dropped me on my unsuspecting ass.
As for sticking by your friends...that is an admirable trait.
