"Friendship is the cooperative and supportive relationship between people."

I've been assessing my friendships lately and it's a sad, cold hard fact that my best friends are people whom I have never met face to face. Even though I have never met them, I know in my heart that I can count on them for anything that they could possibly do and they are always there.

While I have a lot of friends that I speak to periodically, I don't have a lot that I hang out with on a daily basis. I really only had one close by that I spoke to and hung out with. Notice, this paragraph is in past tense. I had to make a hard decision to let a friendship go. I finally came to the realization that it was not a healthy one, for me or for Katie. I think the hardest part was breaking the tie for her.

It takes a while for me to make really good, close friends. I don't air my dirty laundry to just anyone. Now comes the question~ Can a person be truly happy without a close friend to hang out with and do things with?

I don't know, I guess only time will tell.

It's a cold hard fact of life~ friendships come and go.. Seems the ones you really thought you could count on turn out to be the ones you really cant.
