I have gained and lost many over the years and more than I would really like in the last few years. I take everything so personally with a friendship doesn't workout. I have anxiety dreams about fixing what is wrong but I just need to accept that things change. People evolve and sometimes friendships are lost. I felt like when I lost my job that I was losing all my friends but in leaving the comfort of daily interaction I have realized who the real friends where.

I have many goals in my life that I am currently trying to actualize and though I may not have the collection of friends I once had the ones remaining are solid.  I know that I can turn to the people in my life for the mental sanity I need. They each play a very different role.

Chris my mental sanity specialist.
Ang my weight loss and nutrition motivator.
Travis my creative release expert.
Don my Jimny Cricket. name a few.

All are reciprocal friendships and that is how it should be. All those that I have lost over the years felt one sided and I knew that before they went away. With the friends I have now there are pleases and thank you's. There are good days and bad days. There is no negatives and I am happy with the crew of friends I have collected or that have collected me.

“A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are.”

It is hard to let go of friendships isn't it? I think it's part of life and saying that certainly doesn't make it any easier. I'm glad I had your friendship when I needed it most...Thank you! Not sure I've ever said that to you :) I do love your quote at the bottom of your post.

I do hope you have a wonderful 'collection' of friends who do that for you or I hope you are working on it at least. You deserve to have great friends!

Take care of yourself and I like reading your posts! :)
