I had a conversation with an old high school friend recently and we bemoaned the fact that so many of us spent SO much time and effort on finding a boyfriend or girlfriend back in the day that we almost certainly missed out on some truly wonderful friendships.
We joked about how we were probably better off in our pre-teen days when we gave a Valentine’s Day card to everyone in the class instead of focusing on one person.
This is to say that perhaps we didn’t assign proper value to some of the relationships in our lives at that time.
