"Sweetie, right now, you are that girl."
-Jan, one of my best friends
This quote comes from when I was with my best friends over Christmas, sitting at a table at Top of the Hill in Chapel Hill, having one of our usual heart to heart to heart to hearts.
I was upset about being upset about something and said something along the lines of "but I'm not that girl." My friends are amazingly supportive and kind, but also real. I think Jan's words showcase this kind honesty perfectly. As well as our Southerness. (It's very much along the lines of "that tramp...bless her heart.")
I came across this quote in a draft email this week and it just made me smile. I hate being that girl but, sometimes, we all just have to be.
