My best friend from high school and I had lunch today, during which we had our bazillion-th serious life conversation, HA! This was a good one. It showed our age in a way that wasn’t unpleasant, HA (again)! And dare I say, it showed that we have obtained a level of wisdom that we didn’t have at age 16.
This conversation was about keeping genuine and good people in our lives. People with whom we have a loving and reciprocal relationship. Simply put, we just don’t have the time or energy for anything less. We are secure in expecting and demanding more from others. And know that we deserve more than what one-sided topical interactions with disingenuous people can provide us with. I have to say that if an awareness of this level is obtained through time and experience … getting older isn’t quite so bad.
Well, I hope you all have a day where you get better with age!!!
