I Have Two Close Friends, and That’s All I Need
By Katie Smith
When I was younger, I had loads of friends. I was very social and got my energy from being around others. But sometime after my kids were born, the energy to be a social butterfly left me. I thought I was just tired and that I’d get my friendship groove back. But as I started refusing plans when friends would reach out, I wondered if maybe something was wrong with me. There was not.
One of the things I love about getting older is realizing what I don’t need in my life. After going through the “more is more” phase, this has been so freeing. I realize how happy and content I am with just two close friends. These relationships fill me up, and I’m not lacking a thing.
Sure, I have friends I meet up with a few times a year for lunch, but when it comes to true friends—the kind you know will always be there, even if you have a difference of opinion or go a month without talking— there are only two women who fit the bill.
They are partners to me because I know I can count on them. If I picked up the phone at any hour and told them I needed them, they would be there. They listen to me without judgment and call me out on my own crap. They don’t stuff me with sunshine and tell me what I want to hear. If I’m wrong about something, they tell me in the most loving way.
They are more than enough. And so am I, regardless of how many friends I have.
