This weekend was a TON of fun… we had more people in the condo on Friday night than we’ve ever had…..
John & MV, Courtney, Mark, David, Mikey, Mike McCormick, Dr. Mike, Brian, some guy named Michael, some guy named Keith, Glenn, Jeremy K, my Jeremy and me. (I might have missed someone… )
Then Saturday night Jil, Rich, Courtney, Mikey, Jeremy K, my Jeremy and me went to Sassafras. That was a lot of fun!!
… but here’s the deal. I have always been someone who is slow to trust people, has a very small group for people around me that I really trust, and I always find that I segregate my friends, or compartmentalized. I have some great friends that have never met some of my other great friends…. well this weekend, specifically Friday, was the first time I had intermingled a lot of people. Apparently, subconsciously, I was testing some of my friends. I didn’t realize this at first.. it was only when half the group failed that I realized I was doing that.
Sometimes I think I am too hard on my friends. I am very black and white with friends… you’re either in or out…. it only takes one time to go from in to out and as Jeremy K pointed out this weekend.. I have never been someone who can tolerate “a friend”. When I am away from the world and with friends, I want to be with friends… not someone I really don’t like.
So I’m curious. Are you the same way? Am I too hard on my friends? Are you too hard on your friends?
