“Friends” is such a loose term. We all have friends. Some have more then others. Some we classify as people we come across in our different life stages. Some we classify as people in our community. Some we classify as true friends. We are comfortable hanging out more with some. We have more things to talk about with some.
My whole life I thought I’m an introvert, did not like talking to new people, did not like trying to be someone i’m not. Subconsciously, I retreated myself into my comfort zone. No one will judge me there, no one will have undue expectations from me, no one will think badly of me of things that I did or did not do.
This comfort zone grew. Slowly I can see similar people in similar comfort zones. People who are real, people whom i’m comfortable to share my comfort zone with. Slowly I come to realise this is my circle of true friends.
I started noticing that there are people who are outside of this circle.
What should i do with them? How should I change myself? Or should I?
