What about your Friends?

I take friendships very serious. I consider myself a very good friend. You may be thinking that's so cocky of you. But, let me tell you why. I make EVERY attempt to be the kind of friend I would like to have. For me that means the following... a good listener, advocate/cheerleader , secret keeper, shopping buddy, loyal, honest and caring. And in return I want/expect the same.  I must say that's not always how it has worked out. I have a few that don't reciprocate at all. I don't use the word friendship loosely. It's serious business for me. Just recently a close friend accepted a new job out of state. I was excited for her new experience but a wee bit sad for my lost. Not that we see each other a lot BUT she is one of those kind of girlfriends that you don't have to see but you know is always there for you. Lately, I have been evaluating some of my friendships. I have been on a little friendship cleanse/purge. Sometimes you need to do that to make room for new friends. People enter your life for a reason or a season. Some stay and some go. It has taken me awhile to understand that concept. It's hard to let go. It's like that old sweater in your closet that you never wear but hang on to it anyway. Have you ever done a purge or cleanse in the friend department. Did you miss em' after you removed them?  I am curious let me know what are your thoughts on friendship!!  Choosing Happiness!
