Bigger Shoes to Fill

I feel I will always be in someone else's shadow. Never the star of the show more the stem holding up a flower, always supporting rather than leading. I know there will always be someone better, always bigger shoes to fill. This I can accept. However I am the friend who makes you seem prettier, funnier, more confident, but you have made me that way, you have made me second best. If I was ever to take the limelight I dont't know what would happen, it would be a shock to both of us, and I know you wouldn't like it.
I don't need friends like you, I need friends who treat me as equal not as an aquaintance. I need friends who make me feel good about myself. What do I get from our friendship?

The Holiday
: Iris, in the movies we have leading ladies and we have the best friend. You, I can tell, are a leading lady, but for some reason you are behaving like the best friend.
Iris: You're so right. You're supposed to be the leading lady of your own life, for god's sake!


  1. I fully get how you feel,
    and I love The Holiday, watched it way to many times,
