A dear friend of mine took a not so flattering photo of me at an event we both attended last fall, and posted it to Facebook, "tagging" me in it.
Now I should be angry with her but I am not, and here's why.
I think she suffers from the Lylas Syndrome, and that is a good thing. In fact, I am flattered.
What exactly is the Lylas Syndrome, you ask?
When I was a kid, and I am sure many of you experienced this as well, my friends and I used to sign our notes to each other with L.Y.L.A.S. which stood for "Love you like a sister".
Back then it was just a fun thing to do, but as the years go by, I have learned to seek out and notice when I have a friend who treats me like a sister. If my friend indeed suffers from the Lylas Syndrome, then she does not see my bad side. She does not notice what an awful picture that is of me. She just sees a photo of her friend/sister.... her Lylas.
That means the world to me.
