They are kinda flimsy, aren't they?
Some are strong...solid...iron-clad.
Others are brittle...splinter...and burn.
I say this because I've noticed as of late that I've had quite a few people come into my life for short durations...some in a very intimate way...yet its just a flare up. A quick passing from strangers to close to not speaking. Sometimes the fault is mine. Sometimes it isn't. But its happened on more than one occasion and despite my efforts to the contrary, the gaps that get created are hard to impossible to rebuild.
Then on the flip, you have the friendships I've had for 20+ years. Kind of a cop out to resort to people I've known since Kindergarten but there are still several in my life from that far back. More to the current point, I have quite a few friends in this here world of Furry that I've known and kept in contact with for going on 8 years now. I wont sit here and spell out who they are because God knows I'd leave someone out...but the people that might read this that have known me since my days as an angsty high school kid/lion furry with a *shudder* rainbow tailtuft....its crazy how strong those bonds are.
Just one of those random things that pops into my head right before bed.
I've come to accept the fact that some of those burnt bridges will never be rebuilt....much to my chagrin in a few select cases. But...such is life.
