Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Best Buds

--by Angel4eva, posted Oct 20, 2007
When my new neighbour moved in I did not want to meet her as I am shy. So I just watched her move in hoping that one day my shyness would go away and I would be able to meet her because she seemed so nice.

One day my neighbour told my mum that she was having a barbecue. My mum told me and I said I would go. While I was getting changed I started to have second thoughts about the barbecue but I reminded myself that this would probaly be the only chance I would have to get to meet her  properly. So I went  and bonded with my neighbour and had a great time.

So the week after I decided to make her some jelly . But when I gave it to her I ran back to the house because I was still a bit shy but before I got to the door she thanked me. A week later I decided I would make her some biscuits and this time I didn't run away instead I stood there blushing.

And now a month later we are like best buds!!!

Thank you for your honesty and vulnerability ! Warm greetigs Ynco
