I came across this quote on Pinterest today and in light of recent events it made me wonder… Are some people just meant to be in our lives? Whether you and a friend had a falling out, or just grew apart, can you pick up where you left off when given the chance to make amends? I feel like there are some people that we just click with and have amazing friendships with, and then there are some that we will be friendly with, but they never become “friends” and will remain merely acquaintances.
I can count my real friends on one hand and I am 100% okay with that. I am at the point in my life now that I want people who I can count on in my life and around my kids and family. I don’t need drama nor the people who thrive off of it, and unfortunately, I have come to learn that there are a LOT of those people around. With that being said, do you open up your heart and move forward with a friendship after not having seen or spoken to someone in a few years or do you take it slow and see where the road takes you? I am not a very trusting person and usually once you hurt me I will never let you back in my life, but sometimes there are circumstances involved that make someone’s actions better understood.
I feel like if you have spent the past few years missing someone or a group of friends then you need not sit on it and just let the time tick by. Life is too short. If you have the chance to mend a friendship or relationship then take it. Sometimes taking the first step is the hardest, but often times you will find that the other person or people feel exactly the same way you do but were scared to make the first move.
