I need to remind myself that many of the people I have spent time with over the last 2- 3 years are NEW people. No matter how nice some of them seem, and I include church people here, there has not been time to forge very strong links. Loyalty. You can meet people and get close within a few months but when ye olde worlde push comes to shove it does tend to be one’s old friends who will be there for you.
Like I said in a previous post my ‘best’ friend – a man – has been my friend for 31 years… and this other friend who has been supportive has been in my life since 2004.
These church friends do seem to be extremely nice but I just haven’t done the time with them.
