..because all you really need are a few good friends
We start our lives as a lonely soul. Sure, we have family .. then it’s off to some form of school. That’s what I mean by “start our lives..” We’re alone in the sandbox, or on the swing set. ‘Til someone bold enough asks if you want to be friends. We move on, making more and more friends as we age. We go through high school with a ton of friends. After graduation, we party with them knowing we’ll never talk to half these people ever again. Then, we begin to lose friends. The people you once swore would be your bridesmaid’s aren’t even invited to your wedding. The girls that are your bridesmaid’s, end up becoming your children’s aunts and uncles. But somewhere between high school graduation and the day you get married .. A lot happens. People die. They move away. They change so completely you have no idea who that person is anymore. Then, there are those few that you’ve met along the way that would give their right arm, and left leg for you if it meant you’d be able to live a normal, happy, healthy life. There are those people you can turn to and just break down and cry. Those friends are the very friends that leave you back at square one. They leave you a lonely soul - but you see .. the cycle begins again. You start the rest of eternity with the ones who matter most.
