This is a bit of a contradiction. I’m the wife to a man who is my best friend, but I’m also the wife to a man who is my best friend. You’d think I’d be a little more aware of this fact, especially given that the two of us have been together for a decade. But I’m not. I’m afraid, I’m paralyzed, and I’m confused.
The thing is, this kind of thing happens to me all the time. I have a friend who I think is a wonderful person, and he is also afraid, and he is paralyzed, and he is confused, and he is also my best friend. He’s my best friend because I have been with him for so long and we have all of these things in common. Yet, for some strange reason, I have somehow managed to take it all for granted.
This happens a lot because we’re all so used to being alone that we forget how connected we all are. A lot of times people don’t realize that they have a lot in common, but that they are alone. If there is one thing that I’ve learned about having a friend, it’s that you can’t be a friend to just anyone. You have to have a friend who has a lot in common with you.
We all have common interests. These interests are often what make or break our friendship. You could easily get to a point where you have so many things in common that you can just hang out with friends and talk about them. But then there are times when you feel like you are just one of many in a crowd. That feeling often feels like you are part of a group of people who are all trying to get through to you and that you are the one who is alone in the group.
There is a certain type of loneliness that happens when you reach this point. Many people go through this at some point in their lives, but for others, it seems like it happens more often than they would like. For many, it is their first time feeling this way. For others, it is their first time being alone.
