I wish there was a way of keeping track of all of our friends and calling upon them whenever we need that particular person/personality. I have met many people in my 19 years. There have been many people I want to put in my pocket and save for later — lots of people I want to shove into a dark place and never see again — and others I would just like to see almost every minute of everyday, almost. 🙂
“I believe that we don’t have to change friends as long as we understand that friends change.”
This saying is ever close to my heart, because the truth in it expresses how I feel about friendships. We change. It’s our nature and if you’d like to argue about our human nature than take it up with Socrates because I’ve done enough explaining to last me a lifetime.;)
I’ve had a hard time accepting the changes within friendships I’ve developed throughout the past years. I wanted things to stay the same or stay familiar. I can’t expect that when I’ve moved away for college and am not around as often. At first I was hesitant to accept the change — but now I’ve come to the conclusion “friends change” I’m excited for what is to come!
I love my old friends and I plan to embrace all the new! It’s been interesting and hard to overcome, but I’m adjusting quite nicely.
