I’m Looking For Imperfect Friends

I’m writing this week on Her View from Home about wanting friends. Real, imperfect friends. Here’s an excerpt:

Is anyone else as sick of the facade as I am?

Because on social media, everyone seems to have their crap together. But I sure don’t.

Scrolling through my feeds leaves me feeling inadequate and lonely, desperately lonely.

I know social media is only the high points. I know there is always more going on behind the scenes that I don’t know about. But at the end of the day, I just feel like there’s no one who would want to be friends with little, imperfect, insignificant, me.

A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Proverbs 18:24, ESV

So, I’m placing an ad.

    • It can be very hard. But it’s so important that we keep trying and extend the grace to others that we want extended towards us.

  1. The friends who recognize they aren’t perfect aren’t always plentiful and there are even fewer who will look past your imperfections…maybe this post will bring some awareness 😉

  2. I need to post that ad too! ? It is SOOO hard to find true friends once we hit adulthood, it seems. Obviously friendships change, and “hanging out” has a different meaning when you’re grown and married than when you’re a college kid, but sheesh, it shouldn’t mean you can’t FIND a friends, right?! And the older we get, the more we need those REAL friendships – not the fake “call me if you need something” kind of friends, who don’t really mean it. I’m with you…maybe time for some classified ads! ?

    • It can be so hard to find adult friends! I hope this encourages us all to be intentional both in seeking out true friends and in being a true friend. I have found that one way to cultivate those friendships is to simply be the person who is vulnerable and shares their imperfects. If that doesn’t work, stayed tuned for this ad in the local paper 😉

  3. After I left Bible college and everyone went their separate ways I have found few close friends. Then I struggled for several years with anxiety and depression which left me more isolated. Now I have a few “at church” friends but living in a rural community quite a way from social centers and everyone else’s jobs it’s hard to get together. I see my old friends doing their thing on Facebook. And I am glad for them. But I find myself lonely for friends that are not my family. I could totally answer your ad..if you can hang with a sci-fi, cryptozoology nerd who loves homesteading, farming, and gardening, I’m your gal!

    • I love you addition to the ad! While apartment living doesn’t lend itself to homesteading, it’s my hope to move that way in the future.
