I’m a very self reliant person. Occasionally, I will ask for help or ask my friends to accompany me somewhere, but I don’t usually rely on people to take care of me. I’m usually the one taking care of people and supporting them. I like that. But it also feels good to be taken care of once in a while. Today my friend dragged me to the doctor for an insect bite that flared up quite badly. I was all set on ignoring it, because that’s how I am. Turns out she did me a huge favour, because the bite got infected and could have turned into something really bad. I’m so grateful that she took me. I probably wouldn’t have gone otherwise. I’m grateful have good friends. And it felt really good to be taken care of, for a change.
