Reverb10: Friendship

How has a friend changed you or your perspective on the world this year? Was this change gradual, or a sudden burst?

I feel like all I ever really do here is gush about how fantastic my friends are as a collective, and it's true – they are so amazing. I don't think I could attribute just one friend to the changes in me this year because I feel like the quality of my friends is so profound.

Each and every one of them has shown me something about myself, about this world that I hadn't known. They are inspiring, supportive, funny, thoughtful, kind and pure. And I am not speaking simply about my in life friends, this absolutely extends to my internet relationships as well.

To be able to see the world through someone else's eyes, to walk a mile in their shoes? How can your perspective not be changed by those things?

The changes in myself have often been gradual and small but the revelatory fashion that they come to me is awe-inspiring.
