Absolutely. I'm fortunate to have an extremely close-knit family of friends who I have known for more than half of my life. There are five of us total, and I trust my four mates with absolutely every & anything. We don't all even currently live in the same state, our continent for that matter, but it's the kind of relationship where any one of us could go an entire year without any communication, & we make contact & it's completely natural, as if we had just seen each other the day prior. I'm pretty fortunate, as from what I've seen on this message board, an alarming amount of people don't even have that kind of bond with one other person. I don't want to say "that's sad", because bestowing pity on another is extremely arrogant & shows a complete lack of empathy, but I do wish everyone had someone to confide in; someone who supports & loves them unconditionally.


So lucky omg O_o I've lost my family so not much of one um I have a broken family of friends online but that's it. I've been in a situation before though where I would end up on a death bed and have had those same friends fly out to me so. Even tho I lost most of those people who did help me... I still have that one person I trust v_v apparently I'm also lucky for having at least one person considering most everyone here can't even trust themselves -rolls eyes-


Indeed I am lucky, but like anything worth a damn, you have to work for it. I've been in situations where out friendships were tested. But if you care deeply about someone, or in my case, multiple people, you learn to set your ego aside, even if it means biting your tongue till it bleeds. Admittedly, I have given two of my four blood brothers black eyes, but in both respective occasions it was a case of "boys will be boys" going a bit too far. In one case, my friend asked me to punch him in the face. We were absolutely drunk as fuck off whiskey, listening to Motorhead, and he asked me to punch him in the face. I said, "Are you sure?" & he insisted. Normally I would never indulge such a request. But then again, normally he (Matt) would never ask me to do something so destructive and absurd. Either way, we were both sitting down in those foldout metallic chairs, I asked him if he was ready, he nodded, and I delivered. He literally flew backwards out of his chair. At first I laughed, but he didn't move for a few seconds, then he shook, as if he were given the kiss of life, & was in a complete daze for the next fifteen or so minutes. And the next day, the entire right side of his face was yellow. I mean a vile tone of yellow. But we laughed about it & we felt even closer, this happening a good eight or nine years into out friendship. I absolutely didn't tell that story to try to make me sound like I HAVE A MEAN PUNCH, I'm just saying close friendships / relationships are complex. At times they will be destructive, and you will feel immense surges of anger directed towards someone whom you would take a bullet for. But that's completely natural, and in some ways, essential. Fuck. I'm just rambling on. I write really long comments / texts / replies / messages / posts / whatever else. It's a terrible quirk to have in the age of instant everything.

When I was 2 years old I trusted a surgeon I didn't know to sew my head back together after surviving a car roll on a 2-lane highway back in the day. I trusted the ambulance driver to remain sober and alert while he took me, my father and mother to the nearest hospital located 25 miles away. I trusted the 1-piece suit maker to produce a product that successfully repelled germs as I lay face up along a raised railroad grade awaiting rescue. I relied upon the car windshield manufacturer to place shatter plate glass within the confines of that front windshield so I wouldn't get excessively injured as I catapulted through it at great velocity enroute to a hard landing several yards away. I relied upon the laws of physics to propel the automobile away from the rest of my family as they were ejected out during the roll.

That was then. Presently, I rely on God and dumb luck.

The group of people I trust with my life is very, very small. At this time it's two people, and those two people's trusted friends. The pool may be small, but I am in good hands. Currently working to better myself so that I can be someone a stranger can reply upon for help in a not so good situation.
