Columnist Reflects on the People Who Stay
Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend!
Alyssa recently celebrated her 29th birthday with some friends and was reminded of a hospital visit several years prior. In her latest column, she reflects on what the memories brought up for her. Instead of focusing on health problems, Alyssa turned her attention to the friends she was celebrating her birthday with — the friends who stayed.
I’ve been lucky in that the friends who “left” didn’t leave because of SMA. (Or maybe they did. Who knows?) But I find a lot of wisdom in Alyssa’s words. Inevitably, people will leave. You can try and fight it, or you can focus on the people who stuck with you through the good times and bad.
Who are the people who have stuck with you?
