So, I've lived in my current home for about a year and a half. I've meet some nice people that I have hoped or thought that I could establish a close friendship with, but it hasn't happened. I'm better friends with people I've moved away from than I am with anyone here.
It seems to me that many people have a lot of family nearby or already in established friendships and they are not really looking to add on to their group. Now, I am accepted as a third wheel, but that is getting rather old and depressing not being on the "in" conversations.
Why is it so incredibly difficult to make friendships at our age? To find forgiveness for a person's faults? To provide understanding when a mistake is made? Or to allow more than one person close to your heart? I just don't get how this can all be about me but maybe it is.
