I mostly keep my mouth shut when it comes to certain things for fear of rocking the boat, so to speak, but when did that get anyone anywhere? After all, isn't it always better to be upfront with your feelings? Even more so, I'll never get anywhere in life if I always keep quiet (where did the loud mouth I had growing up go?).
Now I do have a few amazing girlfriends out here whom I love very much, but it feels like the relationships that I have with them are different. It could just be me thinking that way so I don't try to hang out with them as I would with Kristen and Lauren, but it could also be that we simply do not have the same kind of friendship. And if that is the case, that is totally fine. Not all friendships are the same. I'm just at a loss for why these seem so different or what I'm doing wrong.
I'm sure some of you may be asking, why are you trying to compare your friendships? I completely understand why you may say that… but I'm not, I'm simply trying to figure out my observations. Perhaps at the end of the day, it will never be the case with the friends I have here. Maybe I need to try harder, or a new way. Maybe I am completely crazy and making all of this up in my head. I highly doubt the last point, but you see where I am going with this. I could easily drive myself crazy thinking of each scenario.
Do you run into similar friendship problems? Have you moved away from home and have had difficulties making new, lasting relationships? I'd love to hear your thoughts. Let's help each other out :)
