Friendship is a tough topic for me to write about. I don’t have close friends as an adult the way I did when I was a kid. And I really miss that.
I recently shared a room with my friend Lisa at a retreat, and we stayed up until 2:00 am talking one night! It was amazing, and I really wish she didn’t live clear across the country.
One of the most important qualities I look for in a friend is the ability to talk with me without any competition or awkwardness.
You know the “friendships” where you have a hard time coming up with things to say when you’re together? Yeah, I don’t do those. I need to be able to relax into the friendship like putting on my comfiest jammies.
How about you? Do you have close friends?
