It would seem that the older I get, the less friends I have. Hahaha. Now, shouldn’t it be the other way around? Shouldn’t one accumulate more and more friends as they grow older?
That is not the case with me. I’ve had many good friends in the past. Girly girly friends of whom we used to giggle and do silly stuff together. Where are they now? I mean seriously, where are they? I have no idea. Sadly quite a lot of friends have come in and out of my life. Not many stay.
Theres this girl which I used to be very close to in college. We went everywhere together and were like peas in a pod but where is she now I wonder. After marriage and kids she disappeared! Then there was this group of girls whom I used to go out for drinks with. They’ve disappeared too. All but one but we’re not very close now as well. Hmm…
Then there are the past colleagues and no need to talk about primary school or secondary school days. Those are long gone. During those days, we moved around (as in change schools and state) quite often, perhaps a bit too often to make lasting friendships.
I really feel it on festival dates. My phone won’t beep as it used to. Now whats left are internet friends who really are rather like ships that meet in the night and of course my dear hubby and sweet sisters. They are my everlasting friends. 🙂
