We are social creatures. We need people to share our experiences, help us grow or just be there. That's why one of the first things we learn is how to talk, how to communicate. How to create a connection with other person, however, is not that easy.
First you meet somebody, then you get to know him or her, and later you start a connection. If you are not able to make connections, you've got a problem. But if you're not able to keep the ones you already have, you're doomed.
As time goes by you make friends. You trust them, take their support and company for granted, but in this life nothing is forever. You have to take care of them and show them how important they're everyday. And as the connection grows stronger, fear increases. Then, you start loving them.
The older you get, the more difficult is to create new connections because you know how it's to loose them, to be alone again. But here I am, just like a wire-walker. "Discovering" new friends while keeping the ones I already have as close as I can despite of the distance.
Does anybody see a safety net somewhere?
