lately i'm learning that getting to know our oldest friends again is a true gift we must not take for granted. it's important. and so much fun. see, we aren't the same people we were back then, we've evolved into the people we want to be. more comfortable versions of ourselves. let's meet again, whaddya say?
i've struggled a bit in my adult years letting go of friendships that aren't serving me. it's a hard lesson to endure, yet i think we all go through it to some extent. while i've learned that parting ways is simply part of growing up, i can't help but feel guilt when things aren't in-sync with those who were once so near and dear to my heart.
however, the older i get, the more i realize that friendship doesn't have to be hard. in fact, it should be the most natural thing in the world. when i'm grounded in that notion, i have faith that people are in my life at the exact time i need them, and they need me.
so, wherever we are in our friendships, it's okay. in fact, it's perfect. if it's not our time now, it will be when we both need it. all we can do is be kind and be open to new beginnings.
