Why Childhood Friendships Are Different (And Just Better)
Throughout your life, you’ll find souls you connect with—friends you instantly click with and want to see more of. But you know, deep down, nothing will ever compare to those childhood friendships. In fact, if you really think about it, there is a good chance that your childhood friendships are some of the few that have managed to last (and going strong) for a long time. You may have made friends during your adult life, but many of those friendships may have petered out, or even gone up in flames. Childhood friendships just seem to contain some glue that makes them stick. I bet you have childhoods friends who, you just couldn’t imagine life without them. There is nothing they could do to make you not want to be friends anymore. It’s such a strong bond. Here is why childhood friendships are different (and just better).
You had plenty of free time
When you were a kid, you had nothing to do. You thought you did, and now you think it’s hilarious that you used to think you were busy. As kids, you really had full weekends to just pal around together—you could spend 48 hours straight with your buddies. Today, you’re lucky if you can spend two hours a month with a new friend. You just had the time to bond with people in childhood that you don’t have now.
