I was thinking about friendships. How complex they are and how fragile. How they must be treated with respect. I think that the best friendships are a give and take. They aren't a give-give-give or a take-take-take. There's some sort of equilibrium.
I long for friends. Very much. But recently I find myself questioning some of my friendships -- worried about hidden agendas and saddened by slights. I’ve been finding solid ground in those friendships that date back years. But yet I crave new friends with new intimacies and new sharing. And so I wonder how to best navigate through this place that I’m in.
I would love to hear your advice or stories of your own friendships.
