Every person who has ever come into my life and considered me a friend will be my friend always.
It doesn’t matter if I haven’t seen you for a month, a year or ten years. If we crossed paths, I’ll always be happy to say hello and catch up. If you were a friend to me, that much will always be true.
I used to be a very anxious person around people. Okay, perhaps I still can be, but I’d say I’m much less so now than I was back then. So I was always happy when someone would accept me as their friend. Back then, I don’t think I gave it much thought but the Present Day Me really appreciates their friendship.
As everyone follows their different life paths, it can be difficult to keep up with each other. We all have different lives and different things keeping us busy. With social media like Facebook around, you’d think it was easy to keep in touch. But it’s ironic that the easier it is to get in touch, the less we seem to actually do it. It’s useful to be able to keep up with everyone’s lives via Facebook posts but also easy to forget that it could be nice to directly catch up with them once in a while.
Nevertheless, I ultimately find it a handy way to keep up to date with everyone’s lives. Whilst I’m not glued to my newsfeed, I do enjoy it when I come across nice updates from my friends. It’s so strange how far we have got and how different our lives have become.
This week I crossed path with friends I hadn’t seen since high school. It was super lovely to catch up with them and they inspired this post 🙂
