100 Days, Day 003

On friends.

The thing I miss(ed) the most during the whole pandemic/lockdown period, as I guess most people did, were my friends.

I don't have a lot of them, but I'm really grateful for the one's I do manage to keep around. They are the best. The absolute best, much better than I deserve.

All through life, you meet people, befriend them, and some of them just stop being a part of your life after a while. That's how things work, obviously. Friends from school, friends from your first job, your second job, online friends, your wife's friends, they all join the friendship circle, and some stay longer than others.

Some stay. I would say those were the ones who were meant to stay.

After almost 50 years hanging around this planet, I should by now have the friends I deserve. But somehow I feel I don't deserve the ones I have.
