During recovery there's an influx of information on getting support. My challenge has been finding people who want to be a friend. I found yesterday that I don't really don't have the strength for a friendship. We need friends and people to be there. I found myself questioning, can I be there for that person. Since the trauma, my definition of friend has changed tremendously. I discovered while I look for those who can meet my standard, I questioned do I even have the strength? I believe I need to take more time to heal. Am I even meeting my own standard? PTSD requires different demands. Any thoughts?
