I really enjoyed reading your post. I found myself nodding a lot and smiling. You stop being the one sending the “Hi, how are you, been a while…” texts, messages and emails to your friends, as you find it tends to always be you sending them, and wonder why you bother. I love having a small social circle, and embrassing the simple life with my boyfriend and cat, and catching up with friends when it suits. I’m 34 and loving it.
