Revolving Friends

Section:

Friendship is a ‘revolving door’ suggests Matthew Steeples; embrace the unknown

One’s life, in terms of those we become acquainted with, is much like a revolving door. It is a door that operates at varying speeds dependent on some coming and staying and others coming and going more quickly than others. Sometimes, even, this door is known to repeat itself and welcome back old timers and sometimes it rightly bangs shut in such people’s very faces.

 

Friends, alas, are often transient in how long they remain with you and last week, after reading an insightful article by Rhik Samadder of the Guardian, I got thinking about some of the most recent ‘revolvers’ to have passed through the doors of my life. Pertinently, Samadder remarked:

“Seasons change, friendships fade, people die. But there are new relationships, jobs, houses, waiting to rise under the ground of your loss. Extraordinary things you know nothing about yet. That is why it’s good to make friends with the unknown.”

 

He is entirely right and in this age where the majority have become totally absorbed by social media we must embrace just such.

  1. I put my faith in a lady (younger than me) I thought I could trust once. She pledged that she would help me always and then I got old and she stopped bothering with me. It was very isolating and upsetting but I shall take heart at this suggestion (thank you Rhik) and head off looking for the unknown. There’s always something round the corner and this uplifted my spirit.

    • Its a true and compelling topic.
      Friends can be just like a plate one it’s broken … then you buy anothe one. At times it can be sad but with time can be also liberating.
      However whom can find a TRUE friend finds a treasure.
