Does Real Friendships Still Exists?

Friday, August 25, 2017

Remember when you were younger and you had like one hundred friends and by the time you reached adulthood you were lucky to have at least three real ones. Friends are a tricky situation and when you're little you have no idea what adulthood is really like. Honestly friends are hard to find, well at least in my opinion. I feel like you have to climb the biggest mountain in order to find a friend that's honest, loyal and respects you. If you have a friend with these qualities, consider yourself lucky. 
Does friendships even have the same meaning anymore? I mean whatever happened to going to the movies or having slumber parties and painting each other's nails. I understand people take different paths in life, obviously it's apart of growing up. But when you don't keep in touch and everyone is busy, you wonder is the friendship even there. I remember being a senior in high school and I would hear people say, 95% of the people you're in school with you'll never see again. Honestly that scared me a bit. I've known a good amount of people since elementary and after graduation, it's like we won't even exist to each other. 
It was so much easier when you were a kid. Everyone became friend s by sharing coloring books and crayons or playing with Barbie dolls. Now as an adult, it seems like you have to create a checklist to make sure someone has the qualities you're looking for in a friend. But if you already have good friends, especially ones that have been there for since childhood or as adult I suggest you hold on tight to them. 
I feel like it's just best to have a small circle of friends, who you know will always be there for you. You know what they say, it's better to have a few real friends than to have a lot of fake friends! 
I hope you enjoyed reading! What do you think about friendships, do they still hold the same meaning?
