Old Friends New Friends

I have to apologise in advance if this post is lame and incoherent. I'm tired ok?

This year my friendship group has changed considerably. At tec I found Nas and Kate who are so wonderful for me and to me. And through Kate I have met all my (wonderful) flatmates. I love the feeling of meeting new people and getting my faith in the human race restored by these people and their accepting of me for who I am but there's something bothering me at the same time. These people are so important to me but yet they don't know the other people in my life that are important. They don't know my family or my friends from school or even last year.

I don't really know how to write about this. I just don't understand how I can spend so much time with people and yet they don't know about the people that mean the most to me. Like Shaz and how awesome she sings, Jem and how just wonderful he is and how much I miss him and Deb and how creative she is. And Dave and how much of a brilliant business man he is. And that they haven't even met Chrissy, James and Ruby so don't get me started on them.

And it's not like I can just sit in the lounge with my flatmates and go "have I told you about my family?" cos it's not about telling them, it's about them knowing.

thats funny you say that, because there are many people i care about who you don't know either, i guess when it comes down to it, we're all individuals and thats who we value each other for, not each others friends or family, because we experience different things with those people so it's completely normal for us to get on differently to the people that you know personally,
p.s. you can always introduce!

Im not quite sure how to write this but here it goes... although those people are really important to you they dont mean much to us (thats not supposed to be mean)its not that we dont want to know its jst that we have so many other people in our lives too.. I love to hear about them because it makes you so happy to talk about them but i jst dont think there is enough time or in my case memory space to hold all those names and facts about people i dont really know or have nothing to do with me although they have everything to do with you Jo (i really hope this doesnt come out bad i mean no bad ...)

Jo said...

No it hasn't come out bad. I think this is where I'm confused cos I don't want/need to tell everyone about my family but I just want them to know. I'm too tired. Things don't make sense when I'm tired!!

what about me?

Well I know for me I have groups of friends that (hope this doesn't sound bad) achieve different things with me, they wouldn't get on with my other friends, and while it'd be cool if they were friends it doesn't really matter to me. I got new friends last year and I love them, I can be a different person around them than I can be around my other friends. Its not like I'm not always myself but just the different sides of me

Aww shucks Jo! I didn't know you cared! I love you too...I like your friends they seem very nice. I'm sure, if they stay your friends for a while, then i will get to know them, and they will get to know your family. The best ones always do!
