I’ve been going through a bit of a rough patch lately. For the most part, I’m really pleasantly surprised about how supportive my friends have been. I’ve actually become closer to several people as a result of opening up about what’s going on with me. And I also try to be there for my friends too, asking about what’s going on in their lives. Some of my friends are going through rough patches too. We’ve actually been able to bond over the mutual support. Of course I had another experience (in the offline world) which made me appreciate those friends all the more. Not that I didn’t appreciate them already.
