Dione Warwick, Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Gladys Knight had a huge hit, "That's what friends are for".
Of late, I've been thinking a lot about he meaning of friendship. The investments we make are often irreplaceable, but sometimes they get lost in time.
To me friendships are bridges. I honestly believe that every connection happens for a reason. Some are meant to take you from one place to another, in your life. Some carry you the miles that life has to offer. At times they are like a oneway street, with both people heading in the same direction. Sometimes the relationship is like a super highway with one person surpassing the other; At other times you head in different directions and sadly endings.
There are friend's that show up just when they need you.
Friend's you've had for a lifetime.
Friend's who have your back.
There has to be chemistry. Some you fall in love with for a lifetime.
Friendships are often imbalanced and based on need. Ultimately they are necessary, unique, non transferable and aid in a desire to be loved.
Until next time, when we can chit-chat again!
