I came across this picture and it got me thinking. Friends. Why do we have to surround ourselves with people and why are they so important to us. I've never been one to have alot of friends...mostly because I felt I really didn't need them. When you open yourself to someone you call a friend, you are also opening yourself to hurt. I've been hurt so many times by friends I couldn't begin to count them. I left my guard down and it's happening again.
I was talking with my daughter Jenn this morning and we were discussing this same subject. Her and I are so much alike it's crazy. She is exactly like me in not having many friends and probably for the same reason as me....I'm tired of being hurt.
Maybe I'm crazy for thinking this way, I don't know but I do know it stops now. If I have to become a hermit to stop this type of hurt, so be it. I can not deal with these types of people anymore. Let me know your thoughts on this and if you feel the same way or completely different.
As always, Barbara
