I just read that women rotate their friendships every seven years, or so. Mostly due to changes in location, job, status…children, you know….life. I find this very sad. Although, I am not as close as I would like to be to some of my friends, I am hanging on for dear life. I welcome the opportunity to make new friends, I feel like I reach out, but the older you get, the harder it seems. Maybe, we are just set in our ways. Sometimes I am overwhelmed by the strength it takes to keep a friendship together, and other days, I am flabbergasted by the fact that you can meet someone, and have an instant connection. Either way, it takes work. Just like a marriage. So, if you are feeling itchy….try to stick it out a little longer, there is strength in KNOWING someone, there is power in seeing each other through hard times. Never underestimate the power of a real friend. Honesty, nudity of the soul….thats what it is all about. night.
