Just Like That: Friendships & Life

When we were young,
we thought that the world was ours.
That the friends we knew will never go.
We play and laugh all day long.
We see the world as a wonderful place to live in.
We never experienced betrayals and heartbreaks.
Skinned knees are much easier to heal, just one band-aid will do.
We just only cry when we stumbled on ground,
when our parents would scold us for not eating vegetables.
Life was much easier way back then.
Then we grew up.
Just like that.

The friends we knew slowly disappear in our life.
Each has its own path to follow,
own dreams to fulfil and own summit to reach.
We get sad and feel lonely but that’s the way life is.
Nothing in this world is permanent.
But one thing is for sure.
The bond and the memories of friendship
will not be broken by any distance.
For the friendship that is true will always be in our hearts.
Kept and secured.
Forever.

Spy, this is a wonderful sentiment. We moved so much when I was little that I don't have a single friend left from those days. We were never in one place long enough for me to build lasting friendships. My son, on the other hand, has friends he's known since he was two. I wanted to give him the stability of everlasting connections. We've lived in the same house for 20 years - something that's a first for me.

~ Having my best friend since I was 12yrs old can only make me so uncommonly fortunate... Poking our index fingers with a needle, pressing those bloody fingers together... we never knew how serious it was then.. we do now... ~ *smiles*, thanks for sharing this reminder spy, *smiles*

Spy this is so beautiful and spot on...you expressed growing from a child into an adult exactly as I would have perceived it. I have one person I have kept in touch with since kindergarten...we stay in constant touch, and we take day trips at least once a month. I also have a couple friends I met through work and through church.

Someone once said we do not need many friends, two or three is fine and I truly believe that. I am a one on one person, always have been, always will be. I do not do groups or gatherings very much. I want to give my full attention to one person at a time.

I remember when I graduated from college, it is quite a transition to leave so many people you have shared time with...high school not so much...too many cliques, and conceited catty women...but in college friends become loyal peers. I have managed to reconnect with a few high school and college friends through Face Book. And former co-workers.

What I love most about your hub is your statement, 'life was so much easier back then...' I miss those days of childhood ...ice skating, sledding and roller skating with my little friends. No cell phones or technology to make life more complicated.

I am thankful for the hubs. I get behind but try to check the notifcations every day and at least answer a question or contribute.

God bless, I love seeing you on Hub Pages. Sparklea :)

You are so right. With social media on nearly ever computer, it is so easy to stay in touch with the people of our present and past.
