Friends versus acquaintances
Monday, March 17, 2014
In my life I have a handful of really good friends and a whole lot of acquaintances. My friends have helped and encouraged me and hopefully they think I have done the same for them.
My acquaintances- I think about, and I care about them, and occasionally help them, but they are not at the top of my list of concerns and worries in this life. Already have enough.
I have now found that that is how I feel about my Spark Friends. I only have enough time to really care about a handful. There are a lot of spark people on this site that I occasionally check on and am glad to see that they are doing well and succeeding, but I have decided to only keep as friends the ones I really connect with.
Even after only being on this site a few months I have come across some new friends that I feel I have known for years. And there are probably more out there that I will find as months go by, and even some I will lose, much like real life.
I do not feel like I need a large number of friends noted on my page. If you are my friend I want to be able to have the time to share our successes together and to enjoy each other's on line friendship.
So please if you have added me as a friend and I did not return the action do not feel rejected, I could be out here checking on you and wishing you well but will only befriend and keep as friends those that I can really treat the way they deserve to be treated.
Many will not approve of my thoughts on this matter, but I am starting to realize that this is my life and I must live it the way I feel best. I cannot feel bad because I do not have time for everyone.
Wishing everyone the best, happiest and healthiest life possible.
