I was thinking about all the new friends I’ve been making and wondering what role they are going to play in my life. Then I caught myself and stopped that way of thinking. It’s like the post I just wrote about, trying to stuff a square peg into a cylinder. Control creeps in and yanks you out of the present like there’s a bungee cord strapped to your back. You create expectations and pressure on the friendships and they become loaded, lopsided. So instead, I am going to focus on being grateful for my new friends and just try to be the best friend that I can be. Some will stay. Some will go. But that doesn’t matter. What matters now is who’s in my container and how our collision will sharpen us. The focus is to seek truthful moments instead of definitions. Because at the end of the day, that’s what friendships are built on.
Keep leaning forward,
