I can carry on a Conversation with anyone I meet, but have always generally been a loner. Not lonely, just a loner.
You would never know it from general passing, because I say good morning to everyone on the way into work, smile at people if we make eye contact, and have many business interactions throughout the day.
I have many acquaintances but few that I call my true friends, and that's okay. The older I get the more selective I have become as to who I surround myself with. I have realized that the support of a small group far outweighs the drama that can occur in larger groups.
We recently met some good friends of ours for dinner. Our conversations flowed easily, even after being apart for months, and covered everything from how our families are doing to health issues we all face. Serious conversations to conversations that had us laughing. We all needed this get-together. I felt so rejuvenated after our dinner with our friends.
They say people with a good support group of friends are healthier, and I believe it.
