I’m quite bad at getting real ones. Maybe it’s because I’m introverted. Maybe it’s because I’ve lost my trust in people due to some ‘toxic’ ones a few years ago. Maybe it’s because I feel like I am invading someone else’s space and friendships. The list goes on.
But do you know which friendships I still do have? And I am talking the ones you can trust, not just the people you say hi and how’s life to. The people that remained in my life are the ones I met through sports. Because you see each other rise and fall, you laugh but also cry together, you know each other’s boundaries. And that for me is more and more valuable as I’m getting older, I think mainly because of this whole internet era. Because of our phones we’ve never been so close yet so distanced.
I’ve never really been the one who is constantly chatting on their phone and now, when I’m living with my best friend, I must admit that I don’t use messenger at all. But other people are so used to constantly chat to their closest friends there, that I’m scared that I will never make real friends in real life anymore.
However, when you’re doing sports (real sports), you can’t do that through your phone. And that’s when I feel the most alive, when I have my few friends. 😊
Cherish the friendships you have and please tell me if you’re feeling at least a little bit like me, this is way too much sensitive topic for me
Tiril and Ingrid’s friendship though, right?? 💛
