I was considering why it is that friends come into our lives and some of them go out of our lives again.
There are many reasons but for me I think that some people fall away because of the changes I have made to myself. I have learned so much about myself that I was unaware of. For instance I have stuffed emotions and feelings down because I was conditioned not to show emotion or share feelings.
When I was in a toxic relationship I had very few friends, and those I did have were not that close. I wasn’t allowed to get close to anybody. Getting divorced and learning to live my life as me has been a steep learning curve.
I have learned how to express my feelings, get close to people and keep others at arm’s length. Now that I am able to express emotions and share my feelings other people may find this unacceptable to them. And that is okay. What I am comfortable with is not always comfortable for everyone else. And that may be why some friends have moved away.
The friends I have currently are wonderful. Some live nearby, some live on different continents, but I am grateful to them all for their friendship and support. I do my best to support all my friends, it may be in a big way or in a small way.
I am grateful for all the friends I have had, still have and those I have yet to meet for their contributions to my life.
