I can't even begin to explain my relationship with Camilla and how fortunate I have been to be able to have someone like her in my life. There are no secrets, no boundaries, nothing that is left unsaid. Even though we don't communicate as frequently as we had when I was still living in the United States, our conversations have maintained the quality, humor, life stories, and our deepest darkest secrets that they held for the past 5 years.
I think my favorite conversations are those where we admit to each other what we struggle to admit to ourselves. Those thoughts and feelings that bring shame or guilt that make you feel like your world will explode if these words actually rolled off your tongue and into the universe.
We all have them.
It could be as simple as wanting to steal a piece of candy from the local supermarket. But nonetheless, we gain perspective, we let go of those things that haunt us. Sometimes it's even occurrences from years before we met that we struggled to admit to ourselves. But once they are out, it's like the cobwebs and skeletons in your closet slowly begin to fade and we sit back, indulge in our odd form of therapy, and watch our friendship continue to grow as more and more boundaries and walls are broken down.
Oh, how I appreciate and absolutely adore this fantastic friendship.
It keeps me sane.
