Relationships

As I was thinking about my post for Embrace Your Life, I came across this and just thought it was perfect!
This past summer, I went through a major change in my life. Now, I got married and that was huge but that's not the only change I'm talking about.
Now, if you are married, you may remember some people acting just down right strange around you after you got engaged and even worse when you got married. I've come to realize that this is normal. I have one such girl, that did not even acknowledge my husband existed, which was odd and hurt my feelings so much.
But, after some crying to Cody and some introspection, I realized that my true friends are happy for me when I'm happy, support me when I'm sad, keep my secrets and care about my life. 
Anyone that didn't fit that bill, had to go. So I either let them know how I felt if they truly did hurt me or just stopped talking to them and a weight lifted off my shoulders.
I wish that I had this list when I decided to make these changes as it really does spell out exactly what I did.
So, if you are struggling in this area of your life, I encourage you to make a change and embrace your true friends and your happiness and own it.
