I feel you. True, I have friends now, people who laugh with me, people who accept me.

Yet, I don’t have any who really understand who I am, and share my passions and interests.

“We all had that friend that at a time we thought would never leave us. The conversations were on point, we had identical reaction to things and we just flowed with them like bread and Akara.”

I used to have two friends that were exactly like that. We dreamed and planned of changing the world together. Imagine how hard it was when our friendship fell apart. It wasn’t an argument, we just drifted away.

Like you, I believe that’s just the way things are. Sometimes, our paths with others cross, often it will diverge, and soon. Accepting that makes it less painful when it happens.
