Growing into a small batch of good friends…

They say as you get older you don’t need a lot of friends but just a few really good ones, and lately that truth has rung more and more true.

After college, everyone’s life seems to be like a pinball machine, bouncing off different places and milestones at different times, sending us in different directions and meeting new obstacles in our own timely manner.

Although, it is scary and relieving to be maneuvering through life at your own pace, it is hard to maintain friendships when you are both standing on very different ground.

There are a few friends though, that no matter what happens, and what element of life you are propelling through, will be there no matter what.

The friends that TRULY celebrate your highs, help you conquer and navigate your lows, no matter what stage of life they are in.

Those are the keepers, those are the friends that you fight for, you love and you are beyond loyal to.

I bring this up because I have noticed the evolving friendships around me. The weariness but urge to let go of acquaintances that aren’t fully our close friends, and the ever seeking need to be surrounded by the women we truly trust.

Growing up is odd in that sense, realizing that all friendships aren’t meant to last forever, just like relationships, and that sometimes we just have to learn to be grateful and appreciative of the bond and time we have shared together.

So that is my tidbit, it is ok to move forward and be closer to different people and different friends. Just go gracefully and be respectful of the relationships you have had in the past. Each one has helped shape you into the person you are today.
