I have been thinking a lot lately about how life changes and relationships evolve or evaporate. How some people I thought I would forever be closely connected to have drifted so far out of my life that I know almost nothing about them. That people I thought would be interested in my children’s lives just aren’t at all and how others that I barely know seem deeply interested in the wellbeing of me and my family.
I had a friend tell me today that she knew I wasn’t going to listen to her so instead she wanted to try and make me feel confident in the way I do things. Who says that?? Strong supportive confident people do! I am thinking that as I get older I won’t just settle for what is there, it’s important to have a good support system and long relationships but it’s also important to know when to let go and be ok with that.
