Peter Pan complex.


Do we really forget when we go away?

I believe to some extent we forget those who we never deemed all that close to us, but when it comes to family and close friends, how could we?  I don't worry when it comes to my fam, but I dread the idea of growing away from my besties.  I live away from them- they're having experiences I'll never have and vice versa.  Most of them I've known since I was just a wee little thing and we've gone through everything together: slumber parties, boys, orthodontia, awkward junior highness, senioritis.  All.  What will it be like when we get married?  Have kids?  Hot flashes?  Yeah, I want my girls there ;)!  

Then I think of guy friends.  At some point it won't be nearly as acceptable to have close guy friends.  I mean, am I right?  You get married= end of guy friendships (or at least that's how I imagine it)...  Sometimes a girl just needs some dudes to chill with who don't lean towards drama and chit-chatter.  

"The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of childhood into maturity."  Can I get an amen?  Who really wants to completely grow up?  I cling to my Peter Pan complex.  Cheers.
