You never really know where or from whom the best advice will come from. I went home to my LP room last night feeling much better considering how the day started and it still amazes me that I got the right advice from a manicurist.
While I was bawling my eyes out in the middle of a much deserved and needed pedicure, she simply said:
It will all be okay, miss. You just have to surround yourself with your people.
Yes sosyal siya. English ang advice niya. Hahahaha.
The past six weeks has been tumultuous, to say the least. My mistake was to not tell anyone that it has been. I am not used to being the one with the problems. I can actually count the number of people I confide in with one hand. Actually, that will just take up three fingers.
Imagine my surprise that when I came running to them for comfort, they didn’t ask any questions. It was automatic for them to cheer me up and turn my day around. They really are the best group of friends a girl can ask for.
So thank you. I know I don’t talk often; I’m usually the go-to person for advice, so my pride gets in the way of me asking for help. But thank you for not hesitating to lend a hand.
On top of everything else, thank you for helping me put myself back together. One day at a time.
