I once read somewhere years ago that friendships are born in those moments that we look at someone else wholeheartedly and say “Ohhhh, you do that too!?” It is in those moments of clarity such as uttering that statement that will markthe beginning of wonderful memories.
Through the years I have found that it really is about how much we can relate to others that not only determines the amount of friends we have, but the depths of those friendships as well.
As we grow and change we will grow together as friends, or grow apart. And if our circle has never changed or has not changed for quite some time, then we may want to question some things. Because if it our circle does not grow or change, then we probably aren’t either.
It will not matter how much we love, forgive, or accept someone. If they are incapable of loving us the way we need to be loved, the relationship is doomed.
For some love is a lifelong commitment.It is a sacred covenant where they place all of their trust.For others, love lasts until the next best thing comes along. They want the rush and thrills of love without doing any of the work. They need the quick fix.
Thoughts of goodbye may bring anxiety. There may even be moments of panic depending on how it ended. We can suppress the feelings or face them.By facing them we stand a better chance of succeeding the next time.
When we have given all that we had and loved with all of our heart to have lost; odds are the next time will be the real deal. It very well may be a relationship where all things are reciprocated. In the meantime, keep the faith. Had we not experienced the loss we wouldn’t be ready for that one we are about to meet.
