The other day upon arriving home from work I walked through the door and blurted out my good news, “I have a friend!” I said it with such excitement I surprised myself a little. David on the other hand looked at me with a confused look on his face.
“Well, that’s good news.” He replied. Still a little bewildered by my announcement.
I moved to Oregon the last week in May and over the last couple of months I’ve realized how much I miss having someone, besides my boyfriend, to talk to and hangout with. Not that I don’t love spending as much time as possible with him but as you get older I think you recognize how important having some close friends are. Plus, I think he gets a little tired of hearing about how bloated I feel and how I have nothing to wear.
Friends are important to your social life and to your sanity.
It’s hard not to get into a groove where your life becomes somewhat robotic. Friends, I believe, mix up the monotony that we all create in our lives at times. That shopping date or lunch with the girlfriends is something to look forward to. It’s free therapy, its laughter, its support and love and if your friends are those of great quality, it’s truth staring right back at you.
Friends add so much to your life.
