Some conversations you want to end quickly, others you don’t want to end because it feels like you are talking to yourself, outside of yourself.
Last week I had the opposite type of contact; I wouldn’t really call it a conversation because it does not warrant that label. At the time I wrote down something like this, “Conversations with friends should not feel like entering a trap.” I felt like I was editing my thoughts before I spoke them.
Now I look back, after better conversations, and I remember that when you are comfortable with someone you never feel like saying anything is dangerous.
So you don’t hold back. You share, and they listen because they care. They share, and you listen for the same reason.
There is no holding back with true friendship. The edit button becomes dusty through lack of use.
