I recognize so much with romantic relationships, but none of them happen when I’m making friends. I’ll be friends with a gal for a few weeks and suddenly we’re calling each other besties. And, I think every friendship will last until the end of days. Then when we don’t, I feel like I’ve somehow failed or something. If these were romantic relationships, I’d be telling myself to relax and get a grip.
At first it was really hard for me. I felt like somehow I was betraying my friends or that I was being a bad friend. My friendships are genuinely important to me and I don’t ever want my friends to feel like they don’t matter or like Mr. T matters more. I’ve been the friend on the other side of things. I know how it feels to be tossed aside the second that a guy comes along.
