A true friend is a connection to life, a tie to the past, a road to the future and the key to sanity in a totally insane world.

Nikki- I'm gonna have to print that one out and frame it. It's that beautiful. It captures everything that I believe a friend should be. Thanks!


You said that soooo sweetly. It amazes me, too, how well I normally know my friends and they're shut down when it comes to knowing me. Why is that? Are we just that secretive? Do we purposely withdraw? Or is it because we're ready to take on their issues and dismiss ours as being too troublesome?


Glad I stopped by this afternoon. Your post reminds me of myself and how I imagine bonds of friendship should be. I follow what you've said as much as allowed.


Yolie- Thanks! I guess it would be honest for me to embrace the fact that maybe I do purposely withdraw. The fact that I am extremely secretive does not help either. Sometimes I think that if someone can't figure out their own issues, they sure as hell won't be able to figure out mine. And then, I do often dismiss my issues. But, it's easier to do when your friends seldom make the effort to find out what's going on in your head. And as I've said, maybe everybody's definition of what a friendship should be is different. But for me, I need my friends to know that I will always be there and I will always try to understand, even if I don't agree.


i'm glad i keep you bookmarked.

just wanted to say that my friends have always undergone a stringent approval process before gaining that coveted title. i've lost relationships because i refused to give up friends who had PROVEN that they had my back - and i'll continue to be that way until i drop.


well, i agree with you cee. unfortunately, most of my so-called close friends over the years didn't see things that way. that's one area where i have a lot of hurts. cuz i love my friends like i love anyone else - deep and true. there are very few out there though that will be friends in that manner. more often than not, they are just holding onto you until they find the next best thing.


what a telling insight into friendship...i can honestly say that I made very few close friends in college because I spent every waking moment with my then boyfriend. I don't regret the time that I spent with him, but sometimes I think it would have been nice to have that sisterly bond with others.....
