But my friendships that I've developed since then with other women don't always feel that easy. It seems like I'm failing in friendships, partly because I'm not giving enough care and attention to those relationships as my friends apparently expect. I guess I'm so used to the easiness and undemanding friendship with my core girls that i fail to realize that these newer friendships need care and feeding.

PS - Being a grown up sometimes isn't fun - but it's still better than being a pre-teen girl!
