The past year has given me a different perspective on friendship. Not everybody is or will be your friend and that’s okay and sometimes the situation might make you question yourself as an individual. Friends come and go, some are meant to be in your life for a season and when the season is over they have to move on while some are meant to stay.
Although people don’t believe this, I am shy when it comes to first time conversations or interactions. I find them so awkward that I hardly ever approach people I don’t know unless I really have to. Also I’ve never been one to have a crazy amount of friends, so when I get attached to certain people and build strong and comfortable relationships I tend to try my best to keep them . I prefer to have a smaller circle of friends because it’s easier to deal with and honestly I don’t think one can be able to deal with too many friends.
The older I get the more I realise that the number of friends will decrease with time and that’s okay, because the friends that have stayed are the closest that you´ll ever have and will be there when needed.What I’ve learnt about friendships really is the fact that sometimes things change in a blink of an eye and they will be gone with the wind. It’s difficult to understand the concept behind losing what you considered a good friendship. It’s not about the quantity it’s about the quality. It’s very important to have people that help you improve your life and go forward, there’s no need for meaningless friendships.
Also never forget that the friend you want to have is the friend you have to be.
Treat others as you’d like to be treated.
To the ones that I’ve lost…Thank you for the memories.
To the ones that are still around.. I truly appreciate you.
To the ones I’m still getting to know…I’m looking forward to the journey.
To the ones I’ll meet for a season.. Thank you for the lessons you’ll come along with..
To the ones I’ll grow old with and end up forcing our kids to be friends… I’m looking forward to that.
