What a great Daily Prompt to write about.
Do you ever miss the good ol’ days?
Of course you do. It seems as though everything is changing so fast as we progress in age. It makes us long for the days of young when responsibility was not a worry and the only bills we cared about were Bill Nye the Science guy and William Shakespeare.
I’m sitting here typing to some friends. I don’t want to sound crass, but I honestly feel like the friendships I’ve had with these people has lost its original strength. I do try and keep in touch with them because I remember how things were and how well we clicked. This may come as a surprise to some but I really do feel like I have a hard time making friends. And you could ask anyone who knows me and they would scoff at the idea of me having trouble making friends. But I sincerely think there’s a difference between being engaging to people and truly making a connection to someone. And those people who (at least in my opinion) I make that connection with, it almost always seems to fade away. Maybe that’s just a result of getting older, being busier, pursuing other interests, moving away and not having the time.
It just genuinely upsets me. I miss how things once were and what we had at some point.
