I admit, I used to have friends who were more like acquaintences. I didn't have the deep and interesting friendships I have now. I had to leave some people behind to find friends worth having. I felt bad about it, but I realised I had to grow out of trying to please everyone. Now I have freinds who energise and uplift me, friends I can rely upon. The effort I put into friendshp is now reciprocated. Anyone else have to leave 'friends' behind?
