My blogger friend Raili,over at soulgifts, is starting a new ‘challenge’ for the month of May, called Circle Of Friends. I thought it would be an interesting challenge for a ‘loner’ like me to participate in. Today’s challenge is A Friendship Mud Map…… This is what I came up with…..
I liken my friendships to starfish on the beach.
They’re far and few between……..
I’ve never had any real, long term friendships…
Moving around as we did, they were fleeting friendships…
friendships of the moment.
The minute we upped and moved, the friendship
Circle was broken………
When the realization that I was always a loner
Hit me, and that it was ok, AND that I actually preferred
It that way,,,,I was able to see and appreciate the people
Who came and will come into my life in a whole different way.
Instead of feeling as though there was something wrong with me
or something lacking because of the scarcity of friends,,,,,
I see myself enriched with the lessons and messages I received and
will receive from those I meet and befriend along the way…and in
turn, I hope they will get the same from me, in our time together.
Like the ebb and flow of the sea,,,my friendships tend to come and go….
No longer do I mourn when they’ve ended, instead I choose to be grateful for the time afforded me.
