Your closest friends don’t need to have the same ambition
your closest friends don’t have to have the same ambitions or even the same interests as you. they just have to be open and loving enough to support you in your own— kasra (@kasratweets) October 14, 2023
Over the course of 2020, my ambitions changed significantly fueled by my newfound interest in writing. Beforehand, I wanted to start my own business, I wanted to become an entrepreneur, and many of my friends at the time shared this interest. But after this ambition shift, I had a yearning to meet other writers. I almost felt like this began to create a chasm in my current relationships because I felt like there wasn’t this shared understanding.
But I learned that in close friendships, similar ambitions and interests are optional, but love and understanding are essential. Ambitions are fluid, mine have changed a number of times over the years, but the shared memories, understanding, and love that you have for a close friend are irreplaceable.
