I like my friends. A lot. In fact, I love them. And often for very different reasons. But I don’t always like everything about them. Just like I know they don’t like everything about me. Some get me more than others, some judge me more than others, some are amused by me more than others. And vice versa. Some are very very different to me, and I love that because we teach each other so much. Some are very like me and that’s often more challenging, but delightfully affirming too. Some have very different values, attitudes and spiritual beliefs to me. But that doesn’t mean we can’t be friends or get each other. I get this. Completely. I wish everyone did.
