You can let your “freak flag fly” as they say in (I love that movie).And because of that, even if your friendships are fewer, they’re more meaningful. Those friends who have weathered the storm with you will always be there. And my sense of humor has taken a downward turn into the land of Sick and Wrong.Those friends who couldn’t…well…I hope you’ve come to the level of acceptance that that’s your’s. If that person was your soulmate I think that’s the closest to Algebra I’ll ever come in my adult life. The truth is, I’ve changed so much that even if my husband met me NOW I don’t know if he’d even ask me out. So…if different…why would I expect to find the same relationship?
Don’t you think dating is kind of like standing on a ledge?
You sweat, hoping that that bungee cord we call karma is gonna hold?
Now, some of us aren’t afraid of heights and we’re ready to take the plunge.
Some of us take one look at the view (which looks just fine without the addition of our innards splattered below, thank you very much) and step away.
And some of us are standing on the ledge, with the cord on, but need a friendly push from a well-intentioned friend who we may be mad at while we’re swinging but once we’re on firm ground we’ll give them a big ol’ hug.
