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.
