I prefer to have a couple close friends rather than tons of not-so-close friends, but it unfortunately leaves me a little lonely when those friends are far away.
Take my best friend for example. We were basically inseparable from September of 2014 to December of 2016.
We both had our own stuff to figure out but were always there for each other.
That’s her up there — ain’t she cute?
She’s moved around a lot, so our friendship has been long-distance for about three years. There are plenty nights where I’d love to drink a bottle of wine and watch a movie with her like we used to, but distance makes it hard.
But when I am able to see her, it’s like we haven’t missed a beat.
That’s something I love about having a few close friends — they are my absolute BEST friends.
If growing up has taught me anything (besides how expensive living is) it’s people I grew up with won’t always be in my life, and that’s okay. People grow up, grow apart, and college tends to accelerate the growth.
I see it as a sign of maturity — we appreciate old friends and accept growth.
Thanks for reading.
