So I have finally come to terms with and accepted the fact that in today's society, I will basically sever or massively alter all/most of my past friendships.
I almost have to pick the most important ones and focus on them, because there is no way to hold onto all of them, keep Jeffrey, and remain sane.
Jeffrey is my best friend, and for the first time in my life, I can only have one best friend. He will be me practically, so that drops all of my other friends to a different playing field.
Soon, I'll get to make married friends as Michelle Collett, Jeffrey's wife.
