What does a friendship mean to you?
I have just been thinking lately. I have 3 best friends, all very different. Claudia, has 2 kids and a strict boyfriend/husband. Bibiana, 2 kids and her husband is a DJ, so they are more liberal. Then, there's Cynthia, single and no kids.
Then there's me... Single mother.
This isn't about just my friends but, friends in general. Why do sometimes friendship change when your relationship status changes?
Those 3 girls have been my best friends since school, for over 10 years each. I love them to death and don't love them any different. But, Claudia usually invites me out more when I have a boyfriend, I guess when we could double date. When I'm single, she gets upset that I go out, party and date and she doesn't.
I have an old friend named Angie, we were so close and then she turned "gothic", or whatever she calls herself. I love having different set of friends, but she thinks I'm different now because I have been married and I am someones mom. So, she distances herself from it (without making it too obvious) and says that is something she never wants to do.
Why is it that friends come together when both their hearts are breaking, but when they are happy with their partner, all they give you is 2 minutes of a pitty party. That's not what it's about.
Friendship, you just have to be there and listen, it has to reciprocate. Regardless of your status, what you believe in, how you dress and what kind of color you like.
Why are we all so afraid of something different?
Why can't we just all love eachother and accept that we're not all going to be the same.
This is kind of all over the place, but the bottom line... Do we all keep close friends that have similar taste and lifestyles?
