Common interests that bring people together, stressful situations, shared values, and having the ability to support and encourage another person is what draws people together. It’s what brings us to make friends and to be worthy of being called a friend.
It’s Hard to Make Friends
From elementary school through college, making lasting friendships was much easier than when we get older. We find that people become less willing to make new connections with one another. That’s difficult to accept, especially if you view your friends to be a lot like an extended family. Not everyone marries and has children, either it is by choice or because they just didn’t find a person that was right for them. Whatever the reason, friendship is an important part of life.
Keeping Love Alive
An all-time favorite movie about a screenwriter who falls in love with a famous bachelor, it’s one of the few movies that I can’t resist watching. There is an excitement and hope that even through the ups and downs of their relationship, in the end, I hope that they will be together. That’s what love is about. Getting through the ups and downs of life and through it all, we remain together. At least this is what I’ve told myself so many times, but the truth feels that we have forgotten about real love and replaced it with the fantasy of being in love.

There is that fear that by losing control, than something bad could happen. A bad review, an argument, or not getting the relationships that you want in life.
Making Tough Decisions
Over the years, I have had to make two difficult decisions for me. The first was deciding where I would live, and the second being what type of career that I would pursue. I’ve had to reinvent myself over the years. I went to college to become a private practice counselor. Although instead, I have found my greatest passion to be in writing. My hope is to write full-time someday.
Have you ever met someone that instantly you clicked with them, but over time that relationship just seemed to disappoint you? It could be anyone, a family member, a relationship, a friendship; no matter the type of relationship it is, there was still something about it that just doesn’t seem to work out. Maybe they…
Free to Be Me
I have to admit it that I’m one of those people who whatever I eat will put on the pounds. I don’t even remember what it feels like to eat whatever I want and not suffer the consequences later. But I was fortunate in one regard. The media wasn’t putting the emphasis so much to…
