You know the saying ‘friends forever’? I love having friendships that honestly will last that long. Last night my friend Em came down from the coast to visit and she said the following:
“Gosh it feels like I’ve known you forever. *pause* Well, I mean I’ve known you since the day you were born *laughs* but it feels like I see you and we hang like this every day, not once a year.”
That’s how you can tell if someone is truly a friend for the long run; no matter how much time you spend apart, once you’re together again it’s like the separation never happened. It’s a pretty rare quality to have in a friendship, people change so often that you often find you just don’t ‘mesh’ with friends anymore, that you’re simply too different for everything to be like it used to. When you meet up it’s filled with awkward pauses and lacking in conversation. You may not feel you can act your true crazy self around them. The friends that skip the awkward moments and get straight into dancing crazily to ‘7 Things’ while the camera is set to take photos at random intervals, who stay up all night talking about your biggest fears, who aren’t afraid to make mistakes around you even if you haven’t seen each other in months and months and months are the ones to hang on to. ‘Cos they’ll be there. Forever.
