In terms of friendships, I burn a lot of bridges. I find my friendships to be… seasonal, for lack of a better word. People come in and out of my life regularly and I’m okay with that. It suits my personality well.
But then there’s Margaret. I’ve known Margaret for 21+ years. As kids we were inseparable. As adults we’ve managed to preserve our friendship, despite living on different continents (Margaret moved to Brooklyn, New York several years ago). Margaret is humble, down to earth, kind, and genuinely full of good. This is one bridge I never want to burn.
