without fail, you will hear it ever time you talk to a sorority girl. You will read about it on Buzzfeed, Pintrest, and Instagram.
EVERY LITTLE LOVES HER BIG.
And its crazy, but its true. There are girls in my sorority that are not best friends with their Big’s. Just because you got along so well at one time, doesn’t mean you’ll be together forever. people change, people age, and people grow apart. that’s life. And every girl will say it. no one will admit that they don’t love their Big. But there are some people, the lucky few, that get matched with a Big who become their other half. Their go to for absolutely everything.
i am one of those lucky few.
Its times like these, when I’m sitting on my floor curled up in my ex’s sweatshirt and crying my eyes out, when she reminds me how amazing of a decision i’ve made. when it feels like my entire world is crumbling around me, she stands there with me, strong, and holds my hand while i trudge through the ashes.
And as i start to plan for my Little, the girl that i will hopefully have as strong of a bond with as i do with my Big, I think of her. I remember how she wouldn’t coddle me, she wouldn’t tell me what i wanted to hear, and she wouldn’t take my shit. she was the grown up when i didn’t want to be. she was the one that taught me that strength will always be within me, even when i deny it to myself. she was the one that taught me that chapter meetings suck, and panhel is sometimes disorganized, but you just have to make the best of it. she was the one that taught me that my blood family comes before my sororal one.
So here’s to you Biggie!
"Some girls have all the luck" and i’m lucky that i have you.
"A best friend is someone who never gets tired of listening to your pointless dramas over and over again." I was contemplating just posting snapchat screenshots, but I figured you would appreciate this a little bit more. From seminary to Sigma to snapchat and everything in between, we’ve been there for each other through thick and thin. I can’t believe we’ve made it two whole years, @sarabeeman. I’m so glad to be able to call you my best friend. 😘💜😁👭🎉
