If you are lucky you can name a few friends that have known you for what feels like forever. This is a precious gift, indeed. But, it doesn’t mean, by default, that these are the friends that should be considered your best friends without thinking about it.
Sometimes the strongest bonds are formed later in life. Sometimes these bonds are formed between people that you shared something deep, intense, and perhaps short-term with. These friends, through this experience, may actually understand you better than your childhood friends. They’ve seen you in your purest, most updated state. Your childhood friends may forever see you as your youthful self, perhaps not allowing you to blossom into the new you.
