Keep calm people! This is not a cheesy post about friendship.
And although I may sound cynical, I’m really not.
I think if someone would ask Adina to describe me she would probably use the phrase from the post title. My life experience has tought me that people come into your life, stay a while and maybe at one point they leave. And it’s nothing wrong with that. It’s called evolution. And maybe you do not evolve in the same direction as some of your friends. Growing apart is as normal as growing together.
The minute you’ll stop expecting and live the moment, you’ll be free.
“The best friend” – what’s that? Did you ever think about how much this label limits you? I think it’s very important to have many people around you, as diverse as they can be, cause your ability to learn and absorb information multiplies immensely.
Adina and I, we’re not “best friends“, we were partners long before we became friends, we’re not constantly together and we don’t go out with the same crowds. We respect each others freedom and individuality. That’s why when we meet, it’s always a little party, yes, we laugh, yes, we bitch about everyone else (like we all do), yes, we act snobbishly without reason (no, my father is not a Lord) and at the end of the day, we return to our lives, smiling and tasting what a real and honest friendship should be.
It took me a lot of time but I’m very proud of myself for being able to think this way, I don’t own the philosopher’s stone, chill.
To all of you who were my friends and are not anymore…Thank you! For entering my life and also for leaving it.
