They say the true friends are the ones that, no matter how long it's been since you last spoke to each other, you pick right back up where you left off.

Until recently I didn't think this was true. I believed that in order to have a true friendship, you nurtured and babied the friendship so that it grew to be unbreakable. Suddenly I'm finding myself completely and utterly grateful for the 'true friends' I have.

There's the people that I've known since grade school.. the ones that, throughout the course of going to separate high schools and growing up, we lost touch. It wasn't until college that we started talking again. Even then, I text or email them once in a blue moon. Yet every time we are able to reunite, it's as if we had seen each other just the day before.

And then there's the people from high school, especially from youth group during those years, that I grew up with.. that I became so intimate with that they knew me like the back of their hand. Even now, when I go to them for my own problems, they know me. I don't even need to explain the entire situation.. somehow, they already know..

My college friends are a whole different set of friends. They have known me for the least amount of time, and yet, without them, I don't think I would have been able to survive the past 3 years of my life. The only thing I worry about with this set of friends is that the friendship isn't unbreakable yet.. there's still a possibility of losing them if I don't keep in touch.. So while they may not be the 'true friend' type yet.. I think the friendships that have been developed so far can grow to be much more significant in later years..

I realize that lately I've been focused on myself and my love life a bit too much. In hoping that I'm taking a proper turn in my life, I'm grateful for the friendships that I have.
