This post has been hard to write. My ‘One Little Word‘ for the year was Friendship (wrote about that HERE) and I’ve been trying to revisit the subject every month or so, but my thoughts for this post are a work in progress.
But I’m going to try…
Friendships are not static. They change. They ebb and flow. Friendships are after all between people and people change.
People who have loads of things in common in their twenties sometimes grow in different directions as they get older. Different interests. Different passions. They become very different people.
And that’s okay.
The history between them is still rich and real. The love is there. But the commonality that fueled their day to day relationship is gone.
Since I don’t a have a bazillion friends, I kinda looked at my close friendships like forever-friendships. No matter what we’ll always be BFF. Things will never change.
I’ve found this year that isn’t true.
I knew when I started my journey with this one little word, there would be surprises.
And around every turn this glorious year…I have been surprised.
Surprises aren’t always delightful, can I get an amen?
As you can see I’m still processing…I’m fairly certain this will be continued.
Any thoughts ?
