Finding True Friends
I think finding out who your "people" are is a life long task. It doesn't matter how old you get you are never too old to lose friends or to find out that certain people aren't really in your corner. Once I found out I was having Girl's I knew the dreaded Girl - Friend Drama was coming. I have been through it and even though I am in my 30's I STILL go through it. Sadly, It's something you will never outgrow. No one is perfect and you will come across some not so nice people. I just didn't think we would go through it THIS soon. But I guess 7 and 5 aren't too young for it.
It hurts when people no longer want to be your friend. It hurts when people talk about you but, nothing feels better than finding someone that loves you for who you are and wants to be your friend despite your differences.
Proverbs 18:24 One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
Proverbs 27:17 As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.
