Hello lovely people!
Hope you’re well.
As some of you might have noticed I haven’t been around for a while now. I’ve been posting things on Social Media (Instagram) but I haven’t had the time or the inspiration to blog. I think it’s mainly because I’ve been super busy and so many things have been going on that my “Burrito” days just took over and corrupted any motivation to function left in my body whatsoever.
Today’s wee post is about friendship and what it is all about (in my personal opinion)
The meaning of the word “Friendship” according to Google is quite odd.. so, I’ll paraphrase it a little:
Friendship – the state of mutual trust and support between two or more people.
But what is true friendship?!
Is it people being together all the time, doing everything together…
Could a friendship be true if people were not talking or seeing each other a lot?!
The answer is…
There’s no right answer. You can’t justify true friendship one way or another. The definition above is as close as it gets, and physical distance and time have nothing to do with how true friendship is. In fact, all the material obstacles are nothing but dust on the road.
Truth is people come and go in our lives and we have no power over this. The most important thing is the memories we’re left with.
Many people are lucky to have kept the friendships they’ve grown up with. You know, the usual lovely fairy tail of meeting at school, going to college/ university, and then living on the same street as their childhood besties.
I’m not one of them.
I live away from the majority of my friends (the ones I grew up with) and sometimes we don’t see each other or talk to each other for months. Life has taken its toll on us, and each of us has their own path to walk. Sometimes those paths don’t even cross for the majority of the time, but when they do and we finally get together (either in person or via this lovely magical invention THE INTERNET) it feels like we’ve never been apart.
I’m lucky to have an amazing circle of beautiful people here in Scotland, that support me and I deeply love, that I can call FRIENDS. But even though we live in the same place, we still meet occasionally just to catch up. And that’s life… The sad truth is that when you grow up, you slowly start distancing yourself from the people you call friends. That’s not because you don’t want to be around them anymore (although that’s also the case sometimes) but is because you all have your own lives and everyday responsibilities that start to pile up.
Just a reminder:
There’s no such thing as FOREVER, there’s only NOW. If you don’t live for the NOW, FOREVER will never come.
Be kind. Explore. EVOLVE.
