I recently lost a dear friend to a complicated misunderstanding, and I’m sad. it’s been a while now, and I’m still trying to wrap my head around the loss, because the whole concept is ludacris to me. I really don’t understand the compulsion to cut someone out of your life– I still talk several times a week to my ex husband, whom I consider a close friend, and knowing us, I can’t really imagine that situation evolving differently.
Many many moons ago, I did break up with a friend, and I’ve always counted that among my biggest regrets. Since that mistake, I’ve done away with the practice altogether. I just keep people. Does that make me a people hoarder? Maybe. Do I care? Nope. Not even a little bit. Should I?
What do you think, readers? Can you have too many friends? Are some friendships meant to be temporary? Would you ever dump a friend?
