Really? For me, the relationships that endured are those that cross the gaps of time and place; ages and stages; before, during, and after boyfriends and spouses; long-term relationships that last through jobs and beyond careers.
If integrity and vulnerability are absent, forget it.
Friends who are loyal, supportive, and encouraging. The rest of them have fallen by the wayside. And frankly, I no longer miss them.
I admire my friends. Each one has qualities, characteristics, and traits that make them special, and special to me.
