The Benefits

In my youth I used to think I had many friends. How I needed that!

All of that has faded over time and distance…

I can’t say for sure that I had any friends.

I was needy for friendship because of lacking family.

Requiring something from them for me. I am not so needy anymore.

Experiencing both spectrums I see the importance of family.

Without family, you look elsewhere until you can figure things out.

The relationships I have now are without desperation and feel solid.

I am so grateful for both opportunities in spite of the growing pains.
