Friends

A while ago I came across an article online where dying people were talking about what, if anything, the wished they would had done differently in their lives looking back. Did they have any regrets? One of the regrets was regarding friendship. It was number four on the list (out of five).
"I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
Often they would not truly realize the full benefits of old friends until their dying weeks and it was not always possible to track them down. Many had become so caught up in their own lives that they had let golden friendships slip by over the years. There were many deep regrets about not giving friendships the time and effort that they deserved. Everyone misses their friends when they are dying."
To me friends is the family I choose. So my friends are very important to me. I'm the kind of person that puts effort into the friendship. You have to nurture a friendship and keep a good communication going. I'm lucky to have made some wonderful friends in my life that I stayed in touch with for many years. And some people were not friends after all but that's OK......I'm better off without them. Just a few days ago a rather new friendship I've developed in the past year or so unraveled and ran it's course. I thought I would be more upset by the fact but I am relieved. Looking at the whole picture, the person I was thinking was a good friend created too many conflicts in the short time I knew them. The proof is in the pudding so they say and I have the proof. I can't help it if you are not happy with yourself and your life.
Don't take it out on me. And that's all I have to say about that. Sooooo.......I turned the page and moved along.
Life is amazing, the people you meet and connect with. I love it. Today is one of my best friend's birthday. Although you can never be certain about much in life, I am very confident that me and Rose-Marie will stay friends forever. I am pretty sure I have some more friends like that, people that I will be friends with for life. It's a great feeling! Take care of your friends, friendship is precious.
