These friends are not easy to find.
You can mostly that within someone a deep part of them that tots disagrees with a deep part of you; and that is difficult to resign yourself to....
Maybe it is your shorthand, but your statement isnt registering
Let me try this out: you know how you feel about animals...and after a while you find out someone you really like doesn't feel exactly that way....suddenly you are faced with the fact of maybe NOT wanting them in your life at all....
I see. What you feel deeply about, and spend much of your energy on, doesnt need shared, but understood
Now, I'm confused....;)
No you arent. You're poking at me:)
Not really. I don't know what you mean. "doesn't need to be shared"...what does that mean.
I love animals, alot. My gf, not so much.
But...she loves me and understands my afinity for them. So, what makes me happy, she is good with.
So if you had to put a pet to sleep and her take is: 'WTF. It's just an animal." How would you feel?
We have been through that. She is supportive and grieves because i do. She empathises. She encourages my passions, as i do hers.
That is nice. This was just an example...but if someone didn't feel the same way I did...I don't know if I could tolerate them.
People are individuals. You can choose to reject or accept your differences. We have enough in common and been through so much, that to ignore what connects us would be cheating ourselves.
I hear that.
That was fun, can we do it again
Great post Jan....
Yes, those people are very difficult to find. I wouldn't know what to do without mine. The boys might yell at me sometimes, be slightly overprotective, and despise each other but I never have to worry about them turning their backs on me.
huh so that explains why you glued me to your heart <3
I overlook my friends' flaws and I'm happy to have like-minded friends.
I meet such people now and then. They always act like they have no idea how to act and they want to hang around because I'm the only stable person they ever met.
