It is amazing to me how I still have friends from high school. I have a middle school friend that lives in North Carolina. I see/talk to her about once every two years. No joke. Gives us lots to talk about. She owns her own business and it is thriving. Two kids, husband and a gorgeous house. She deserves it. She is a Good person. Still, I wonder if she has ever had to use administrative lawyers when it comes to the laws and regulations when owning your own business. I wonder this because I have a new friend whose husband is a lawyer. I find it fascinating what cases he does and does not take. There is so much more to being a lawyer than I imagined. Also, I had no idea that if you were a lawyer in one state, you are NOT a lawyer in another. You have to take a BAR exam in each state you want to practice. Egads.
Back to friends… No matter how long ago I met them or how recently… I find it interesting to see who keeps in touch and responses and who I lose. I try to use my loses as a learning experience. Because I need to teach my boys not everyone can be your friend… nor do you want them to be. Some people seem fine when you meet them but as you continue you find out they are very negative. Those… you need to let go. How to you help your kids see this? I am working on it… hope I get it right.
