Do you find it challenging to spend time with the friends you’ve got? Unfortunately I do and recently came into some social situations where new acquaintances want to become friends. This is great with the exception that it’s challenging to spend time with my current circle of friends. What’s more interesting is that I’m not sure I want to spend time with these new acquaintances simply because I don’t have the time. This begs an even bigger question, what kind of narcissistic being am I to think I don’t need anymore friends? It is true that friends will come and go from our lives and as a result being open to new friends is important. In addition, I’ve moved to new cities and know that the key to that move transition going well is meeting nice like-minded friends therefore I should be more sensitive to this notion. So back to the question, with parenting and working how does one find time for new acquaintances/friends? Anyone else have this dilemma?
