One of the saddest lessons I’ve had to learn over the years is that not all friends stay with you forever. You acquire some friends that become like family and absolutely nothing will make them leave, and then you have some friends you acquire based on the life you've decided to live at the moment. My mom always used to tell me, “Most of the friends you have now won’t make it to your wedding.” I used to think she was crazy because those were my girls and they were going to be there no matter what, and I just knew it! But yet again, as she somehow always is, was right.
I went through some phases growing up, as a product of some things I was going through. I developed friendships with pretty much every type of person along the way. As I tried to look for the type of person I wanted to be I ran into basically every situation and every situation came with a new friend. Each time I was amazed at the quality of friendship and my heart warmed with how great each friend was. I’d keep them for a year or even more before I started to share some more personal things and that’s when they’d start to fall away. Somehow I had attracted the most selfish of the selfish, the neediest of the needy, and the most untrustworthy of all the dishonest. Many times when push came to shove and I needed people to have my back there was no one to be found.
