I really want to know?
Who are you?
I think I am listening to an old Stones’ lyrics.
But, do we really ‘know’ anyone anymore? I am thinking of several people I have met over the years. I think I have gotten to know them, but then years later I meet them again, and they seem very different.
It is as if they went into a cult, or something else.
So, are you the same person, I would meet in a coffee shop? If we had a great conversation, would we ever meet as friends again?
Do you have any idea how many ‘former friends’ I have gotten to know over the years. I am not writing about the ones separated by mere distance. I am writing about those who have fundamentally changed.
Not those who ‘found Jesus, and became sober.’ Sobriety would have made several of my old friends better friends.
I mean from bad to worse. From ok to bad. From tolerable to unbearable. From kind and polite to very rude.
Is it just society (American Society) getting worse? Or, do we all just lose some friends during our lifetimes?
What do you think?
