Childhood Friends

I don't think we can ever again capture the magic of childhood friendships. I have had a lot of friends since childhood. For the most part they come and go. It seems friendships between adults are more easily tainted.

I couldn't agree more, friends whom i called Brothers have totally changed.. It seems that adult friendship are meant only to benifit themselves, if you are not benificial to them, do not expect the magic you once experience. I've lost alot of friends like this, some just totally ignore me once they grow up. Some treats me very well all for their ulterior motive. Some can be close to you and the very next second treats you like an enemy for no apparent reason... I prefer my childhood friends, where there is no politics and friends were just merely friends! Experience like this has taught me to treasure TRUE friends and not be emotional about those who care less about you

I have also learned to cherish true friends. Loyalty seems to have almost disappeared. When you find a good friend, you really need to hold on to them. And you definitely have to learn to have thick skin with others.

Yes childhood friendships are very pure and very beautiful, in later life its more about your interests. There is hypocrisy as well sometimes but good friends are available still in this world

Yes, it does seem that our friendships that we have as adults are more easily tainted, but I think that's probably because as an adult, life is much more complicated than it was when we were carefree children. I'm still friends with many of my childhood friends. I think it's important that we nurture those friendships as we age...as well as the new friends that we've picked up along the way.
